This year was a year like no other. We started it ready to celebrate ITMO’s 120th anniversary, but before we knew it, our entire digital infrastructure was put to the test. Though it was not an experience anyone could be prepared for, our staff and students handled it like champs. Truly, it was a jubilee year to remember. So, let’s look back at some of 2020’s top news and what we’ve achieved here at ITMO University!
Just last month, a new coworking space opened its doors at ITMO’s main building on Kronverksky Prospekt 49. On November 24, a counterpart opened at the Lomonosova St. 9 campus. Both of the coworking spaces and the upcoming library have been developed as part of the university’s overall transformation strategy that aims to make studying, working, and socializing comfortable and enjoyable for all students.
The new space is split into several areas where students can enjoy various food and service options, as well as take some time off to play foosball or billiards or to plop down by the PlayStation. Read on to learn more about the new cafeteria on Kronverksky Pr. 49 and the upcoming renovations at other campuses.

The document signed by ITMO's rector Vladimir Vasilyev and Yuri Sobolev, CEO of Mediatech, will launch two collaborative projects.

Also, a coworking will be organized on the base of the company, where promising students will get an opportunity to try themselves in working on specific projects, propose their own ideas and polish their skills by working with a professional team.
