The Donetsk National Medical University provides all the possibilities for students and lecturers to realize their aspirations. Among foreign students, the most popular holidays and parties are:
- national holidays (Independence Days and Culture Days of their own countries, Dipavali, Holi, Chinese New Year, etc.);
- religious holidays (Ramadan, Christmas, etc.);
- Crimea state medical university holidays (Faculties Days, graduation balls, days of the Russian language, Food Festival)

The favourite place for such holidays is a beautiful and well-equipped House of Culture of DonNMU for more than 700 people. Modern audio- and video-equipment, as well as professional staff and security system allows to hold all the events at a high level. Some holidays take place in other halls of DonNMU or in the open air.
