BME (Budapest University of Technology and Economics) offers free dormitory placement to a limited number of students. Each summer, you have the opportunity to apply for it via Neptun (E005 and E005NEW request, under the Administration menu). The selection process for first year students depends on their admission points, while for returning students, it depends on their grades from last year (CGPA). This also depends on your faculty, since each have different cutoff points. Your placement in your rooms is completely at random. However, it is possible to swap rooms between students upon reaching mutual consensus. In this case, both students have to send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org, including all necessary details. Please note that if you apply for a dorm place, you agree to stay there for the academic semester, which means that you reserve no right to ask for accommodation allowance once you get accepted, even if you want to move out during this time!
Each dorm has its own rules and breaking them can have severe consequences. If we receive complaints about your behavior multiple times, your contract will be terminated. There will be regular inspections (3 each semester) at these venues that you MUST attend. You will be informed about their time in advance. Mentors will go and check your living conditions and survey if you have any problems. Please read below for more information about the currently available dorm(s).
