Housing information

Booking accommodation


  • CEU Summer University will reserve accommodation for those submitting the Housing forms, for which the link will be provided in the email notification letter sent to participants.
  • Not all participants will be accommodated in the same hotel, please check the 'Hotel options' below.
  • Arrival and departure dates

- Check-in date: the day before the course starts
(e.g. if the course starts on Monday, the arrival day will be on Sunday)

- Check-out date: the day after the last teaching day
(e.g. if the last day of the course is a Friday, the departure day will be on Saturday).

  • Accommodation grant recipients

For those who have been awarded an accommodation grant, it covers housing expenses only for the course period and can only be used in the hotel designated for the course. Participants are expected to cover extra days, extra persons and room upgrades. In case you wish to bring a guest, or wish to book an extended stay, you need to cover all extra expenses.

Some courses have a funding scheme that allows them to offer their accommodation grant recipients single room occupancy. If your course provides a grant for shared double rooms but you do not wish to stay with another person, you can ask for a single room upgrade at your own expense.

  • Self-funded participants

You can book your accommodation in the same hotel where scholarship participants are staying. If you’d prefer to stay someplace else, please mark it in the Accommodation Booking Form (link will be provided in the email notification letter). You can CLICK HERE to explore alternative accommodation options for apartment rentals or hotels.

Please do NOT include payment for accommodation costs when you transfer the tuition fee. Accommodation costs should be paid upon arrival at the hotel either in cash or by credit card. In case you have a sponsor covering your accommodation expenses who would prefer to transfer the amount in advance, please contact the Summer University staff at summeru@ceu.edu .
