The Faculties of the University as well as the city centre are easily accessible from the dormitories. Most of the dormitories have recently been renovated.

How to get a dormitory placement at UP?

In order to receive dormitory placement, all students must fill out the online application form of the Student Union. First-year students have priority in the application process. Dormitory allocations are non-negotiable.


We would like to inform you, that your dormitory contract can only be ceased with the termination of your student status, or at the end of the semester, on the 31st of January. If you move out of the dormitory before that, you are obligated to pay the dormitory fee until the end of January.
During the checkout, it is mandatory to show the room to a Dormitory Committee member. It should be in the same condition as it was when you moved in. (clean) You also have to hand over the keys and sign the checkout form.

Study rooms/community rooms

We offer study rooms to the students on each floor of the building. These rooms are ideal for students who prefer to be alone while studying. The keys for these rooms can be taken from the Dormitory Committee’s office and shall be returned as soon as you are finished or the next day at the latest.
The community rooms serve as good places for a greater number of students, who want to come together. These rooms must be requested in the Dormitory Committee's office 24 hours before the event and the corresponding form has to be filled out.

Having a guest

The students in our dormitories have an opportunity to have guests in their room if they have a free bed. Every guest has to be registered at the doorman. When registering, it is really important to fill out the arrival and the departure dates. The student has to pay for those guests who stay after 11 pm and the cost is 1000 huf/night, which will be charged via Neptun.

Basic rules of coexistence

The dorm has a multicultural community with various habits and lifestyles. Tolerance is a key factor for our residing students. While we encourage socializing and making new friends, there is one universal rule in the dormitory, that every student agrees on: During the exam period, they prefer to have a quiet environment, without any disturbances.
Considering the size of the building and the great number of people we accommodate here, it is self-evident that we put a lot of effort into the cleanliness of the building and the safety regulations.
We would like to ask you to take them as seriously as we do.

Fire Safety

From time to time, you will hear the fire alarm ringing in the whole building. These are usually false alarms caused by burned food etc. If the alarm stops in the first minute, you have nothing to worry about. On the other hand, if (on a rare occasion) it keeps ringing, you have to leave the building as soon as possible.
In Hungary, smoking is prohibited by the law in public buildings! (in dormitories)
- Smoking and using Hookah/Narghile is forbidden in the building. This is probably the most important rule to date. There are smoke detecting sensors in every room that turns the alarm and the ventilation in the building on. We take the rules regarding this matter strictly, so if any traces of smoking is found in a student’s room, the dormitory takes disciplinary action.   
- Trying to turn off/modify the sensors is STRICTLY FORBIDDEN.

Not all hope is lost for smokers though. There is a designated area that you can use next to the building entrance. 
The sensor in the bedroom is more sensitive, so while cooking, make sure to close the door and do not leave the cooker unattended. Do not put any hot objects on the floor, on the table, or on top of the fridge. 
Electric kitchenware such as: ricecookers, water boilers, microwave ovens must not be used in the bedroom.  
The fire doors and the emergency staircase on the northern end of the building can only be used in case of fire.


There will be a scheduled weekly cleaning in every room, which can be extremely helpful with your daily chores, especially in the exam period.
It goes without saying, that having weekly cleaning does not mean that you don’t have to clean the room at all. We kindly ask the students to keep a healthy standard of cleanliness in their block.
Based on our experiences, these are the most crucial parts, that you have to pay attention to:
- Keeping the kitchen and the toilet clean after use.
- Use the shower curtain. If too much water gets out it can easily go dripping down from the ceiling on the floor below. Also, too much water on the floor causes limecale.
The cleaning ladies cannot touch your belongings, so basically if you leave more space free, you get a more thorough cleaning. This is only possible if you keep the above-mentioned daily practices.
The cleaners also provide liquid soap and a roll of toilet paper every week. The bedsheets will be changed once every three weeks. These things can help, but we strongly suggest buying your own necessities.


Damage report

Small accidents happen from time to time, so it is really important to report every damage in the room immediately. We have a Building Management Staff, which can fix things in a matter of minutes.
The most frequent problems that occur are:
- Clogged shower drain, kitchen sink        
- Burned out light bulbs     
- Broken furniture
- If anything happens, please do not hesitate to tell us.
Each and every student is responsible for the condition of their room and the furniture inside it. The student is obligated to pay the repair costs of the caused damage.


Scholarship students receive their accommodation allowance after they matriculated, which means scholarship students have to pay for the accommodation until they do so.
The monthly rent has to be paid every month in the Dormitory Committee’s office.
The deadline for each month’s payment is the 10th of the month. In case you fail to pay in time we have to charge a penalty fee. We would like to inform you that according to the accommodation contract, it counts as a breach of contract, if you have a dormitory rent debt that exceeds 30 days, which results in the termination of accommodation service. 
The payment methods are either cash or credit card. The accepted currency is HUF.

Opening hours of the office are Monday – Sunday / 07:00 – 20:00. 
The monthly price cannot be divided. This means that even if you did not spend the whole month in the dormitory, the full price has to be paid. There is a 5 days patience time though.
For example: If you happen to arrive 5 days before September ends than September is free of charge. But if it is more than 5 nights that you spend in the dormitory, you have to pay the full price for it. It is also the same with departure. In case you move out until the 5th of the month, you do not have to pay for that month.
Lastly, there is a really helpful bunch in the Dormitory Committee. If you have any questions about the city, the university, directions, the immigration office or anything that we might know the answer to, do not hesitate to visit us.


Rented accommodation

For incoming students who require superior quality accommodation, rented flats are an alternative. Renting a flat can provide students with the peace, comfort, and privacy they require.

How do I start looking for a a place to rent?
The monthly rental price of a two-room apartment might cost between 80.000 to 200.000 HUF (250-620 EUR);
The surroundings, the distance from the University and the facility might affect this price.
Please note that utility bills and property management fees are not included in the rental fee.
Always take into consideration that you might need to sign up for an Internet connection at a local communication service provider and bear its expenses.
To pay a deposit is always required by the accommodation provider, which usually is equal to 1 or 2 monthly fees. This has to be paid in advance before moving in, and it is released after moving out from the apartment.

Please note that you might need to use public transportation to reach your destination comfortably.

Usually the Real Estate Agencies offer English services. Below, you can find links to those services providers which operate in Pécs:

How do I prove my accommodation at the Immigration Office?

In order to obtain the residence permit, you will need to present a valid rental contract signed by the accommodation provider. This includes the address, the monthly expenses, terms, and conditions (period of renting). Please note that each and every owner of the property has to sign this contract, therefore it is suggested that you check the relevant names indicated on the property deed (a landholding document).

The language of public administration is Hungarian, as a result, it is not obligatory to submit the contract in English. For the sake of your own protection, it is highly recommended to have the contract translated to English as well.

Important to note: the contract to be signed has to meet the requirements of the immigration office of Hungary (Bevándorlási Hivatal or BÁH), as it would otherwise not be acceptable.

You will also have to present the following documents:

  • official copy of the property deed (földtulajdoni lap) issued by the Hungarian Land Administration Office (Földhivatal)
  • utility fees ruled (electricity, gas, water)
  • form of residential address registration (szállásbejelentő lap)
  • private documents (passport, Letter of Award, Decision of Admission)
  • proof of health insurance
  • An administrative fee also has to be paid to initiate the renting process.

We would like to encourage you to ask for help during the searching of a flat.

Native Hungarian ESN Pécs mentors will be able to represent and promote your interests when it comes to deal with administrative procedures.
