The station was formerly known as Ploscha Kalinina, but was renamed a year after its opening to Ploscha Zhovtnevoi revoliutsii (Ukrainian: Площа Жовтневої революції). Maidan Nezalezhnosti forms a station complex with a transfer section with the neighbouring Khreschatyk station on the Sviatoshynsko-Brovarska Line.
The station is laid deep underground and consists of a central hall with porticoes. The lamps which light the station are hidden in the niches between the columns and the walls.
