    • Single room: 28 Euro/person/night
    • Double room: 17 Euro/person/night

      Prices include breakfast.


    Those who are responsible for covering their own accommodation costs should pay upon arrival at the hotel either in cash or by credit card (VISA, Maestro, Mastercard, American Express, JCB).

    Accommodation grant for SUN scholarship recipients

    • Recipients of a SUN accommodation grant are eligible for a double occupancy room. If for some reason you do not wish to share the room with another person, please check the availability of a single room with the SUN Office and ask for a single room upgrade. In this case you will have to contribute to your room cost by 11 Euro a day.

    • The accommodation grant for scholarship students only covers the course duration and the night of arrival one day before the course starts. If you wish to extend your stay, you'll have to cover the extra nights from your own budget and also arrange the room for the extra nights with Sarolta Szabo () as soon as possible or by May 15th the latest.

    • In case you wish to bring guests or family members, SUN covers only half of a double room for you; therefore you'll have to cover the accommodation costs of the extra person on arrival.

    • Please note that the accommodation grant is part of your grant package: it cannot be paid in cash and is applicable exclusively at the CEU Residence and Conference Center. CEU does not give accommodation refunds for early departures, weekends away, or for breakfasts not taken.

    Arrival and departure dates

    You are supposed to arrive one day before the course starts and leave one day after the course finishes. Depending upon availability, you can extend your stay in the Residence Center. If you wish to arrive earlier or/and leave later than the regular dates, please contact Sarolta Szabo () as soon as possible.

    Spouses and Guests

    Please note that the Summer University Office does not have the resources to assist participants with locating accommodation for spouses or assisting them with visa arrangements.
