Announcement of the dormitory and housing application to the 2020/2021 academic year of the first-year international students

The ELTE Dormitory Centre and the ELTE Housing Office make every effort to offer a wide range of quality and affordable accommodations to its present and future students. The COVID-19 epidemic made it necessary to create a more flexible accommodating system than before, where the dormitories, and other non-ELTE accommodations (altogether: housing) are not separated fields, but real alternatives of each other.

We strongly encourage everyone who is entitled to apply to fill the form, because even if you do not apply to one or any services, the rest of your answers still help us appraising the students’ needs and improve our portfolio and services.

We announce the dormitory and housing application to the 2020/2021 academic year for the first-year international students.

How to apply:

The first-year students (who can begin their studies at ELTE in the 2020/2021 academic year), must apply to the accommodation services with the online dormitory and housing application form. Clicking on the “Submit” button is necessary to have a valid application!

Deadline: 1st of August 2020. Though the form remains active even after that, every dormitory application sent after the deadline will be considered only as a waiting list application.

In case you experience any technical problem, contact us at immediately!


The dormitory places are assigned based on an objective point-ranking system, which will be announced later, but before sending the dormitory application results. The decision of the Dormitory Centre will be sent to every applicant at once, in an e-mail either in the “Letter of Acceptance to the ELTE … Dormitory” or in the “Letter of Rejection”, expectedly between 6th and 10th of August. Make sure to check your spam folder as well!

The housing applicants will be contacted in e-mail. Those, who requested housing assistance only if their dormitory application is rejected, will be contacted only after the dormitory application is closed.

Accommodation documents:

Accommodation documents issued by the Dormitory Centre about the next academic year can be made only if and after you are accepted to a dormitory. In most cases, the temporary address in the Letter of Acceptance of ELTE is enough to arrange your visa and travel, but if you need another document (like a proof of accommodation), contact us!

Every housing partner provides the necessary accommodation documents after you make a booking or sign a contract with them.
