The predecessor of the current Polar State University, the mining and metallurgical college, was opened in 1944.

#ARCTIC.#SIBERIA.THIS ISTAIMYRThe whole city built and equipped the two-story building on Octyabrskaya street: tables and chairs were made at the woodworking plant, blackboards and drawing boards were made at the brick one, and journalist Yevgeny Ryabchikov was sent to Moscow to get textbooks and manuals.

The Norilsk combine took care of the technical school students. It was necessary to dress all the students: in addition to uniforms, they were given a winter uniform – overcoats and fur hats.

A dormitory for 100 people and a student canteen were improved. And when there were not enough places in the hostel, students were given half of the residential building, and they were not charged for living.

Such care, unthinkable in modern times, was due to the fact that students arrived not only from Norilsk and its environs, but from all over the region.

In the History Spot’s previous publication, we said that initially there were no decorations on Gvardeiskaya square.
