In addition to renting rooms or apartments, private dormitories can also provide a solution for housing. They may differ from one another in several ways: number of beds, services included, and costs. All the dorms mentioned below provide long-term stay, which means a contract for 6 or 12 months.
Private dorms provide furnished accommodation: you may encounter single rooms, but 3-4 bedded rooms are a lot more common. Bathrooms and kitchens could belong to each room, but it is common that several rooms share them. More expensive dorms may provide cleaning and laundry services.
Costs and Contracts
Private dorms are usually cheaper than apartments and room rentals. Utilities may or may not be included in your rental fee, but the contract will clearly state this.
Please note that BME does not have a contract with these dormitories, and hence it is YOUR responsibility to comply with their rules. Please note that private dorms have their own policies and breaking them can result in the termination of your contract. Also, many Hungarian and foreign students from other other universities are looking for this type of accommodation, so the number of places is limited.
They normally require a few months’ rental fee worth of deposit that will be reimbursed after you move out only if you conformed to your contract throughout your stay. It is required to compensate for any damage you may cause to your accommodation. It can also be held back if you do not stick to your monthly payments. In order to avoid any future misunderstanding with the dorm manager, please take photos of your room as you move in and report any already-existing issues and damages to the accommodation.
You can find several private dorms on the internet, and here are our top picks for you:
