Universitet (Russian: Университе́т, English: University), named after nearby Moscow State University, is a station on the Moscow Metro's Sokolnicheskaya Line. It opened in 1959 and features rectangular white marble pylons and tiled walls. The architects were V. Litvinov, M. Markovsky, L. Lile, and V. Dobrakovsky. The station's two round entrance vestibules (architect Ivan Taranov) are located on either side of Prospekt Vernadskogo at Lomonosovsky Prospekt.
