The ELTE Dormitory Centre and the ELTE Housing Office announce their combined dormitory and housing application to the 2022/2023 academic year for the new (first year) international students who will study Budapest. We ask every international ELTE applicant or student to apply even if you do not request any help as your answers still help us determining the needs of students and improve our offers and accommodation services.

The housing service is continuous. Every dormitory application will have a result at the same time, expectedly on 11th of July 2022.

You can learn more about the accommodation services here (and its subpages). Please, read it before applying!

Who can apply?

Every international ELTE applicant or student who is not yet enrolled at ELTE (does not have an active or passive student status) and will study in Budapest is entitled to apply in this application.

How to apply?

The application form is available here.

The dormitory and housing applications are in separate sections of the same form. The selected dormitories show only your preferences, but you can be accepted to any dormitory. You will be forwarded to a confirming page after you have clicked on the “Submit” button.

The application is active
from 16th of May 2022, 10:00 a.m.
until 1st of July 2022, 14:00 (CET).

The form remains active even after that, but applications sent from 2nd of July will be considered as waiting list applications.

Results of the applications

The housing does not have a result, it is continuous. We are going to contact you within a few days after you send your application.

Every dormitory application will have a result at the same time, expectedly on 11th of July 2022. The Dormitory Centre will send the dormitory application’s result in e-mail with the subject “Letter of Acceptance to the ELTE … Dormitory” or “Letter of Rejection”. Make sure to check your spam folder as well!

Accommodation documents

To help the visa applications, the ELTE Letter of Acceptance includes a paragraph with the address of the ELTE Erdős Pál Dormitory. This paragraph does not grant you a dormitory place, but it is accepted by every Hungarian and most foreign authorities as a temporary proof of accommodation until you have an accommodation in Hungary.

The Dormitory Centre can issue accommodation documents of the next academic year only if and after you are accepted to a dormitory.

Every housing partner of ELTE provides you the necessary accommodation documents after you have signed a contract with them.
