Student hostel accommodation is offered to exchange students coming on a scholarship or through bilateral agreements between the sending university and the UP. Student hostels are located in residential area of Pécs. The faculties of the University as well as the city centre are fairly accessible from here, only a short bus journey away.
Altogether there are several rooms of reasonably high quality available for ERAMUS (European Union (EU) student exchange programme) incomers during the academic year - however we cannot offer a room for a single student due to the short supply of generally large demand for rooms.
The rooms are furnished and contain a bathroom. Bedclothes are supplied. Rooms are offered at a reasonable price.
Life in the student hostels and the various events held in them (game shows, contests, professional programs, exhibitions) are organized by the Student Hostel Committee. The infrastructure of the student hostels has been constantly improving in recent years. Nearly all hostels offer library and computer services, and have their own clubs, sporting facilities, snack bars, video and TV rooms.
