The aim of the Óbuda University dormitories is to enable university studies primarily for students coming from the rural areas of Hungary, who are entitled and worthy based on their academic results, social status and community work. They also accommodate international students in limited number. Proof or certification of accommodation will be a requirement for residence permits.
Óbuda University student housing provides accommodation and offers students comfortable living spaces, convenient learning conditions, sporting and recreational activities. Rooms are fully furnished with all basic amenities and equipped with Wi-Fi internet access.
The dormitories have a network of so called “member colleges” which are located in the different parts of the city, mainly close to the faculties. The operational tasks are carried out by the direction of the Heads of the Member Colleges and with the participation of the Student Union of the Member Colleges. This practice provides students with problem solving skills and prepares them for their lives beyond the University.
