Budapest Metropolitan University of Applied Sciences has 5 campuses altogether. The main campus where the majority of the English classes are held consists of modern buildings in a green environment. Student work and learning at the University is facilitated by unrestricted access to a Wi-Fi network covering the complete area of the campus, and a number of computer work stations strategically scattered around the buildings.
Downtown Rózsa Street and Rottenbiller Street Campuses is home to the art programs of the University offering workshops and classrooms adapted to the special needs of art classes including a photo studio and laboratory, a cameramen studio, cutting rooms and teaching spaces for animation studies. The glass walls of the studios offer people passing by a glimpse of the artists at work.
The equipment – such as looms, electronic kilns, etching presses, industrial sewing machines and 150 high-performance Macintosh computers – needed for the arts programs are also housed inside these creative spaces. The campus also boasts one of the very few LeonarDo laboratories in the world with the special interactive 3D software installed offering students the opportunity to work in real space and time.

Budapest Metropolitan University of Applied Science does not have their own dormitory because flat rental fees are quite low all around Hungary. Youth hostels are easily affordable and the most convenient form of living is to rent an apartment which is approximately 250 EUR per month
Living in a youth hostel costs about 140 EUR/person/month (utilities included). The living costs in Budapest are about another 120-140 EUR/months. This includes grocery, food, personal hygiene, local transport, telephone bills and other expenses apart from the tuition fee. For those students who need VISA to enter Hungary, MET provides accommodation for the first month of studies at our contracted hostel partner at 21 Ipar utca, 1095 Budapest as part of our VISA assistance package.
