Important Pre-Departure Information

Welcome to the CEU Summer University (SUN) program! Congratulations on having been selected as a participant; we hope that you will have a pleasant and successful time in Budapest with us. CEU staff members will do their best to make your stay enjoyable.

Please note that all classes will be held at the CEU campus in Nador street on the Pest side of the city. Detailed instructions and maps of how to get to the campus from your hotel and how to buy your local travel pass have been provided in the downloadable brochure.

In the brochure you can also find information about how to get to your hotel from the airport/train or bus station upon arrival in Budapest; where to exchange money; how to buy a travel pass; tips about restaurants, coffee houses and bars in CEU’s neighbourhood; computing facilities and library services at CEU; etc.

Registration will usually take place in the hotel between 10 am – 7 pm on the Sunday before courses start (exact registration hours, if different, will be emailed to participants a few days prior to arrival). Course coordinators and the SUN staff will hand out welcome packs (CEU information sheets, a shorter version of the brochure, etc.) and ID cards to participants and will help them buy their travel pass. Local residents and those staying in hotels other than the one booked for the course will receive their welcome packs and ID cards from the course coordinators on the first day of the course.

On the first day we will offer an Orientation Session (check the time and place in your course schedule), during which participants will receive instructions how to use the CEU computer system and will be provided with their login names and passwords to access it, useful tips about CEU and life in Budapest, as well as information about social events planned for their course.

The SUN office is located at Zrínyi street 14, 3rd floor, Room #304. In case anyone needs assistance they should not hesitate to call us at +36-1 327-3811 or see us in our office.

We hope that your participation in SUN will be professionally rewarding and beneficial for your career. Enjoy your stay!
