Yugra State University is located in Khanty-Mansiysk – in the heart of Western Siberia. The region of Yugra is famous for its natural wealth (about 60% of Russian oil is produced here) and unique cultural traditions of the Khanty and Mansi – indigenous peoples living here. Annually Khanty-Mansiysk hosts many international events, such as the World biathlon cup, international chess championships, the international debut film festival “Spirit of Fire” and others.
With regard to all this Yugra State University sees its mission as assistance to social and economical sustainability of the Yugra region by means of development of innovation technologies, keeping ecological balance and increasing quality of human capital, and also enrichment of the indigenous peoples’ heritage.
The University was founded in 2001. But despite being one of the youngest Russian universities it shows excellent performance in its both research and academic activities.
Yugra State University comprises several innovation and research centres: the Energy Efficiency Centre established by the Russian Energy Agency, the CISCO academy, the Centre of Nanotechnology and Nanomaterials, the Centre for Ecological Problems of Oil and Gas Regions. There is the UNESCO department "Environmental Dynamics and Global Climate Changes", which has international field station and laboratorial complex at its disposal. In 2013 the Institute of Northern Peoples was established on the base of the University. There students can study the Khanty and Mansi languages, history and culture.
Yugra State University’s campus is very comfortable and modern. It comprises several buildings connected through a passage system, student and teacher dormitories, sport facilities including the biggest in the city swimming pool. Sport is very popular among students in Khanty-Mansiysk – there are several mountain skiing complexes where they can do snowboarding.
