Registration

Registration Hours

Each Sunday, the SUN Office staff will receive participants at the CEU Residence Center between 10:00 - 13:00 and 15:00 - 19:00.



The registration process

Please visit the registration desk during the hours above and collect your
  • welcome pack, which contains a map of Budapest; instructions how to buy a travel pass and how to get to the downtown campus where classes will be held; a guide to restaurants in and around CEU, etc.

  • visitor's card that should be presented upon entering the university premises, including and the Library and the computer labs
During registration, you will be asked to submit the photocopy of your insurance policy.



Computer access

Individual login names and passwords for the CEU computer system will be distributed during the Orientation Session on Monday. Until then, you will be able to use a few computers available in #101 with a guest login for express emailing.



Meeting your group and your course coordinator

Most course coordinators will try to meet their groups on Sunday and take those participants out around 7pm who have arrived by then. They will also help you buy your travel pass. Please look for posters announcing these group meetings on the notice board at the Residence Center.

In case your course does not organize any such events, you can start exploring the city on your own - if you need help or advice, please feel free to consult the SUN staff at the registration desk.



Buying your travel pass

Please make sure you bring a photo sized 3.5x4.5 cm, which will speed up the process of getting your travel pass.

(It may help if several of you meet after breakfast and come to campus together.)
