The building of Ferenc Földes Dormitory was built in 1910, based on the plans of Imre Szőts and Albin Siegel. In 2007, the building was completely renovated under a PPP arrangement. Accommodating nearly 300 students, Ferenc Földes Dormitory can be accessed by a 10-minute walk from the University’s main building and is located in Ráday Street, which is why many refer to it as the “Ráday Dormitory”. In the six-storey building, there are rooms with 2, 3 or 4-beds, and most of them are designed so that two rooms have a common bath room (with wash basin, shower and toilet) to be cleaned, as their shared responsibility, by students using them; and only a few rooms have an own bathroom. On each floor, there is a washing-ironing room with two automatic washing machines and one dryer; there is a kitchen with two electric stoves, one microwave oven, a pantry room, and lockable kitchen cabinets; and there is a shared toilet. There is a glass-roofed function room in the inner courtyard of the “H”-shaped building of the dormitory.
In each room, there is an internet connection endpoint for each student to access the WIFI network, which was significantly expanded in 2020. On the ground floor, there is a TV room and a club room/function room (Közgarden); and in the hall, there is a ping-pong table, a lounge area, two study rooms, and a bicycle storage room. A gym, which was rejuvenated in 2021, is available to those wishing to exercise.

There is a reception service of 0-24 hours in the building.
Receptionists ensure, by checking the photo on entrance cards, that the persons using them are the cardholders indeed; and they briefly check the identity of residents entering the dormitory.
An entrance card may only be used by the person authorized to use it, and handing it over to others will result in a disciplinary procedure.
There is a first aid box at the reception.
You can borrow cleaning tools (broom, shovel, mop, vacuum cleaner, iron) at the reception by depositing your entrance card.
Entrance Control System
The dormitory has a turnstile entrance system operated with an entrance card. An entrance card is given to each resident when moving in the dormitory.
Residents are required to use their cards when entering or leaving the building; stepping over or crawling under the entrance system or transferring an entrance card to anybody else is FORBIDDEN!
Upon losing your card, please write a letter to the e-mail address email@example.com , so that our system administrator may issue a new card to you for a fee, which you are requested to pay at the Dormitory Operation Unit.
Rules of Receiving Visitors
Residents may receive visitors free of charge every day from 7 a.m. to 11 p.m. (up to three individuals; above three, a written permission is required).
A Resident may receive a maximum of one visitor every day from 11 pm to 7 am with the unanimous consent of the resident’s roommate(s).
The fee for receiving a visitor is included in the Regulation on Student Fees and Benefits (HUF 1,000/person/occasion).
Such fee items will be registered in Neptun for students with a student status with Corvinus University. And they will be invoiced to residents with no student status.
Such registration/invoicing will be based on a register maintained by the Reception Service (Register of Visitors), which must be filled in and signed by residents when giving notification of their intention to receive visitors.
The Register of Visitors at the Reception must be maintained in such a way that the name and room number of the Resident receiving a visitor and the exact dates of the calendar days and the exact timing affected by the visit can be clearly identified, and it must be signed by the Resident upon receiving the visitor concerned. The name of the visitor and the number of the certificate with photo used for verifying the visitor’s identity must also be entered in the Register.
After the completion of the administration of visitor registration, the Resident receives a permit for receiving visitors, on the basis of which the Resident’s visitor may receive a temporary guest entrance card, and thus the visitor can stay in the Dormitory.
The Resident receiving the visitor is fully responsible for the visitor’s behaviour.
A Resident may receive visitors at maximum of 15 occasions per month for a fee, a maximum of one person at a time, and a visitor may remain in the Dormitory for a maximum of three times a week for a fee. In case of violating this rule, the Resident may not receive a visitor involving fee payment in the month following the month of the violation.
A Resident who seriously violates the Rules of Receiving Visitors may be restricted in, or banned from, receiving visitors for a definite period of time; and a visitor who violates the Rules of Receiving Visitors or the House Rules may be excluded from being received, or, in more serious cases, such visitor’s entry into the Dormitory may be restricted.
If, during an inspection, Dormitory employees find a visitor staying in the building without a permit, then the Resident receiving the visitor may be given a penalty point. Any individual staying inside without permission may be banned from the Dormitory.
Minor visitors may be received by a resident only if the visitor is a direct relative (e.g., sibling) of the resident receiving the visitor and the parents or legal representatives have given their written consent to receiving the visitor. For receiving minor visitors, the Dormitory administrator’s permission and roommates’ written statements of consent are also required. Even with certificates and permissions obtained, minor visitors may be accommodated only in rooms inhabited by residents of the same gender.
