On-Campus Residence Hall
This on-campus residence hall offers comfortable accommodation in well-equipped en-suite rooms. Only 30 minutes from the city centre, the newly built residence hall offers rooms overlooking the garden and provides a unique and peaceful residence experience. Rooms can be occupied by one person or shared with another student. Each room has its own bathroom and there are communal kitchens at the disposal of students. 

Off-Campus Residence Hall
This is a nice 3-star hotel very close to the campus (5 minutes by car, 20 minutes by public transport). It offers single and double rooms, all with private bathrooms. The new dormitory does NOT offer cooking facilities, however, it offers a full buffet breakfast for each day, which is included in the room price. 


IBS's new campus consists of three beautifully-restored architectural heritage buildings, located in Graphisoft Park in Óbuda, directly by the Danube. The Park hosts over 60 international and Hungarian companies, including Microsoft, SAP, Canon or Samsung, and will provide a live business environment for our school. This will provide students and graduates with implied potential and employment opportunities. The campus also includes a residence hall for our students.
