So, right now you know that you have been accepted to our lovely university. What to do now? You need to send an email to [email protected] with this form. It should include all the the personal info about you, also the preferences you would like to have (Please keep in mind to fill the info in the same way as written in the passport).
Congratulations for getting accepted to the dormitory! Here you will find crucial information about the accomodation, the rules and the answers you have been so keen to find!
First things first, what is this dormitory?
The dormitory is called Leányka dorm, getting the name after the street it is on. (Leányka means „little girl” in Hungarian, isn’t that cute?) This dormitory is the biggest dormitory on the Eger campus with the capacity of hosting more than 399 students. The community formed here is not the greatest, but the most diverse in the university! Sadly, the dormitory only offers 60 places for the international students but so far the best friendships have been made here, in our dorm! Here are some basic info you might want to know:
|3300 Eger Leányka street 2.
|(36) 520 400 / 4105 or (36) 520-400 /4336

Layout of rooms
That’s cool, but what do you mean „places”?
Places refer to the „beds” we can offer to the students. We have 3-bed rooms and we have 3-room apartments. Do not confuse the two, and let me explain why! 3-bed rooms mean that 3 students get one room with 3 beds, one bathroom (shower, sink and toilet included), a fridge and microwave. A 3-room apartments on the other hands means that 6 students get into an apartment where they can get 2-bed rooms within. The apartment also incudes a separate bathroom and toilet within the apartment (not within the rooms!), a fridge, a microwave and a small kitchen unit (without an oven, because of fire hazard reasons). Incoming students who want to stay in the dormitory, will have to pay a monthly fee of 26.000HUF.
Here are some picture about the rooms and the apartments:
So, what does the dormitory in itself offers for us?
Two common rooms where you can play foosball „csocsó in Hungarian” or have a friendly party, TV if you want to watch movies or play some video games, five kitchens with ovens and cookers (one in each floor), washing machines, 24/7 security service for safety, three vending machines full of snacks and a coffe machine (only accepts coins, tho), clean bed sheets and no curfew.
What is not offered by the dormitory?
Utensils, plates, glasses, general cooking equipment. Towels. Cleaning services (everybody has to clean their own rooms – cleaning services are only offered for the halls, kitchens and common areas). No buffet or any kind of food services. Driers (neither for clothes or hair).
The ESN mentors will help you to find places in the city to buy these things from it.
Alright, that’s also cool, but will we have wifi in our rooms where we can share our amazing time in Hungary with our friends online?
Yes and no. The rooms and floors in itself do not give you access to a good wifi connection but we do have a free wifi (only) in the lobby. Now, you might ask. What if I want to use it from my room? Good question! Here’s how you can do it:
- You can buy a router in Agria park (that is the closest mall to the dorm). It’s around 4000 HUF and the price can be easily reduced if you buy it together with your room- or flatmates. If you decide to do so, please contact your mentors about it because the router has to be set by the IT representative from the Dorm Committee.
- Internet cabels. Each room has several cabel connections, so that’s the easiest to get. A 5m long internet cabel is around 1200 HUF. Also, the newest update of Windows 10 allows you to make a wifi hotspot out of your PC.
Wait, hold on. Dorm Committee?
Yes! Each dormitory at Eszterházy Károly Catholic University have their representatives. They help you during your stay, including, if you have any problems, there is a complain you have. So don't worry about being alone in it. There would be a large community in the dorm for internationals (not to brag, but this is the biggest community of internationals you will find in the city). We have nearly an event every week that includes different indoor and outdoor activates such as, visiting another cities, food gathering, etc.
So, if there is a committee that means that the dorm has certain rules that we should keep, right?
Yes, very good thinking! The rules are very, very simple. Thus, it doesn’t mean that they are meant to be broken. We have rules for a reason, kids!
- Smoking is strictly prohibited in the buildings. Why? Because it’s dangerous. The rooms, floors and common areas are equipped with sensitive fire alarms. If you decide to break the rule, smoke inside and the alarm goes off, you will face disciplinary and financial consequences. But, we have appointed areas outside the building where you can smoke and it is provided with a beautiful view to the city!
- Cleaning rule: a clean room and apartment is crucial to have a good mood. This rule is not only meant to enforce that but the owners of the dormitory want us to keep the rooms and apartments very clean. This is why there are monthly checks where you will get warnings if you don't keep your room/apartments clean. The first warning will give you a 2500 HUF fee. The second warning will give you a 10.000 HUF fee. The third warning will get you expelled from the dormitory. So, keep 'em clean!
- Silence rule after 11PM (23:00). The silence rule means that no one is allowed to have mad parties in the corridors, their rooms or in the common areas after 11PM. Why? Not because we hate fun. The rule was created because the dormitory is filled with students who have exams or just simply would like to sleep. First rule of co-habiting: be aware of each other!
- Drugs and gambling are strictly prohibited!
- No pets!
- No random room changes! You need to notify the Dorm commitee if you wish to change the rooms you were given.
- Having guests: between 06:00 and 23:00 it is free of charge but you have to notify the security guards in the lobby. If your guest wishes to spend the night, it is 2000 HUF/person/night.
- No posters on wall: as it would leave prints on the wall and paint can be removed (you will have fee in room check if any are found)
So, what if your time to leave the dormitory is approaching and you want to do the checkout?
As you entered the room, one of the dorm committee members accompanied you to ensure that everything was in order. The same procedure will be taken again in order to make sure that the person coming after you has a good time. You have to inform one of the dorm committees about your departure at least two weeks before you do so. The person will check several things. The cleanliness of the room is the most important thing, and everything that was in the room during the check-in process is still there, like the pillow and other things.
We hope that you will have good time during your stay here in the Leányka dormitory 😄
