Accommodation fee will make up the most significant percentage of your total monthly budget. The amount you need per month will depend on what type of accommodation you secure. An amount of approximately 60,000-170,000 HUF/months (200-550 EUR) is needed monthly to cover your accommodation costs. You can get a place in a student hostel for about 210-300 EUR, or a private apartment for 400-500 EUR.

The living costs in Budapest are about another 150-250 EUR/months. This sum includes grocery, food, personal hygiene, local transport, telephone bills, and other expenses apart from the tuition fee and housing.

Metropolitan Dormitories: Nova Inn and Belvárosi Albérletház

Budapest Metropolitan University has two contracted dormitories. One of them is just downtown and the other one is right next to our campus. Due to its exceptional public transport connections, all of our campuses can be reached in 30 minutes even from the furthest dormitory. Applicants who would like to move in will be asked to pay the deposit through a link we will provide you via email after you fill the online registration form. The deposit is 500 EUR for all the dormitories. All applicants will be asked to pay the rental fee of the first month (depending on the dormitory) after filling the application form.

What is 'deposit'?

The deposit acts as a safeguard should the tenant cause any damage to the property or does not take the accommodation for the time period laid down in the Lease Agreement or does not fulfill his/her obligations set out in the Lease Agreement in any other way. This payment assures your placement at our dormitory and is fully refundable upon check-out as long as there have been no damages to the property. 

In case you pay the deposit for the dormitory (and the rental fee of the first month) but eventually do not take the placement, you might be eligible for a refund. For further details, please contact and fill the refund form (Refund Letter Form.docx). In case you are indeed eligible for the refund you'll be reimbursed within 15 working days.
