It is located in Belgrade's municipality of Novi Beograd. It is the largest dormitory in Belgrade, originally constructed to accommodate nearly 5,000 students.

Studentski Grad is located in Novi Beograd's Block 34 (and some smaller parts of Block 4), bounded by the neighborhoods of Bežanijska Kosa on the west and Fontana on the east. The area is encircled by the streets of Tošin bunar and Narodnih heroja, Zoran Djindjić Boulevard and the Belgrade-Zagreb highway (or the Boulevard of Arsenije Čarnojević).

Studentski Grad, as its name points out (Serbian for student city) is actually the University of Belgrade's student residence. It was constructed in period 1949-1955 and a massive and long reconstruction was conducted 1985-1997 after which Studentski Grad gained its present appearance.

Studentski grad includes not only students rooms and restaurant, but also two libraries, gallery space, cinema and theater building, spaces for conferences and podium discussions, an open stage for summer concerts and happenings and one orthodox chapel.

F wings have buildings seven storeys high, while G wings comprise buildings with six storeys. Altogether, Studentski Grad accommodates 4,406 students and the surrounding local community had the population of 8,491 in 2002.
