  • Such fee items will be registered in Neptun for students with a student status with Corvinus University.
  • 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, room number, and Neptun code 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.

Internet Access

Information: There are several ways to request access to the Internet.

1. In a message sent by email to the address rendszergazda.kinizsi@uni-corvinus.hu. The email must include the student’s name, room number and the computer’s ETHERNET MAC address (physical address).
2. Through the registration form on the Internet.
3. Through a registration form to be requested at the Reception, which you can complete and simply return to and leave with the Reception (it is no good when students contact the system administrator one by one merely for that reason)

After your request for it, you will be provided access to the Internet within 3 working days. As the system administrator has multiple tasks, it cannot be ensured that he/she can perform the registration immediately after your request.

If you have any further questions or requests on the Internet, please write to the address rendszergazda.kinizsi@uni-corvinus.hu or contact us in person: Viktor Szeker senior helper – L113

– Left-click the Ethernet icon
– Here you can find the Physical MAC Address

For Mac OS X users:

  • The WiFi network of the Dormitory is operated as an additional service.
  • In some rooms, there is no proper internet coverage and network reliability is highly dependent on web workloads.
  • Wired connection is recommended to ensure a reliable access to the Internet.
  • To use the WiFi, you need to log in with a Cusman username and password.

It is important to understand that, contrary to all rumours, there is no lower limit for violations of regulations, i.e. there is no lower limit (for uploading, downloading, daily, weekly, etc.) below which violations of regulations are allowed. Thus e.g. sharing or downloading such content that violates any regulations, laws, or copyright, or harms the reputation of the University is not allowed even to the slightest extent and may result in disciplinary consequences! Of course, not even the Dormitory or its system administrator can grant an exemption from this!
