Besides faculties, the campus will also accommodate a students’ center, which will include a multi-purpose hall, cinema hall, students’ club, pool, fitness hall, main restaurant for students, as well as smaller restaurants, pizzerias, cafes, classrooms (foreign languages centers and the like), dancing hall, post office, internet club, bank and other areas for social activities and entertainment. Accommodation capacities will be provided by dormitories and apartments for teaching staff. Apart from that, some joint amenities will also be situated within the campus: laboratory, library, university offices, and the rectorate.

According to conceptual designs, the campus should also include squares, parks, promenades, gathering plateaus, administration building, clinic, dental clinic, printing office, technical maintenance service space, and so on. Sports and recreation have also been thought about, thus the campus should also include fields for football, handball, tennis, basketball, volleyball, running tracks, cycling trails, etc.
