Tarkaréti Dormitory

The Dormitory accommodating 400 persons is located in the green belt of District 10 of Budapest, 15 minutes from the Metro Terminal of the Blue Line (Kőbánya-Kispest) and that of the Red Line (Örs Vezér square). The dormitory is one of the most important venues for integration into the University community and establishing lifelong friendships.

The building is constantly being renovated and improved, and a significant part of the Dormitory rooms have been rejuvenated during renovations in recent years. As a result, the entire side for girls awaits its future residents with new rooms. In 2020, the building also received new windows and external thermal insulation.

Residents in the Dormitory are accommodated on five levels in rooms with three beds, which include: an entrance hall, a washroom with hot and cold water, a wardrobe and refrigerator. Internet connection endpoints can be found in each room, and also a WiFi network is operated. On each floor above the ground floor there is a women’s bathroom and a men’s bathroom (with showers and toilets) and a kitchen equipped with two electric stoves and a microwave oven. We provide washing and drying facilities on the ground floor.

In addition, the Dormitory has its own library where board games can be borrowed. There is also a computer room and a study room. As a sports facility, the well-equipped gym, renovated in 2017, awaits those who want to work out.

Beer pong tournaments, joint parties, cooking, social evenings and other events help students establish strong friendships that last for many years. In addition, the Dormitory atmosphere allows for the smoothest possible advancement in university studies. Through joint groups and friendships, students in the Dormitory have much more opportunities to ask their fellow students for help with a current problem with their studies or some other problem, and due to spatial proximity, help usually arrives extremely quickly.

All in all, the youthful, liberated atmosphere of the Tarkaréti Dormitory provides an ideal space for new university students to build relationships, to start their independent lives, and gain lifelong experiences.

Outside the city, on the border of Rákoskeresztúr, there is a Tesco store (“Pesti street Tesco”). It’s worth getting here by bus. Buses 161 and 162 also stop nearby, and you have to get off at the stop called “509th street“. You can also find a Tesco store at the Pillangó street Metro stop. If you get out of the subway, go over Kerepesi út and also a smaller park next to it. From here you will already see the destination.
You’ll find an Interspar in the Árkád Shopping Centre and a Match in the Sugár Shopping Centre, both at Örs vezér square. If you like home-made flavours, you will love Cédrus Market Hall right next to the bus stop at Örs vezér square. 

Computer Room

You can find the Computer Room, or as we call it “Gépterem” (machine room), on the first floor opposite the elevator, the entrance is to the left. Here you will find computers that facilitate your studies and, if necessary, your entertainment, for which the Dormitory has sacrificed a lot of money and energy, so it is in everyone’s interest to take care of them.

Opening Hours:

The Computer Room is constantly open. If the Computer Room is closed (which is quite rare), there is certainly a technical reason for it. In this case, look around the door for an information paper about the expected opening.

Entrance to the Computer Room:
You can only enter the Computer Room with your entrance card, by touching the entrance control on the right side of the door (the procedure is the same when coming out). Caution: you can enter and exit the Room with your card only once, so you cannot pull it down twice in a row, because the system detects as if you are already inside – so it will not let you in again. Persons using the Computer Room are required to keep their entrance cards with them, meaning that the two of you cannot walk with one entrance card, the more so because if one of you leaves the Computer Room, the other will no longer be able to get out. Liability for the Computer Room (also financially!) will be borne by those who are in the Room at a given time according to the records of the system. Do not swap different hardware components (mouse, keyboard, speaker, etc.) between machines, as they are not accidentally connected to a given machine.

There is a camera surveillance system in the Computer Room. This protects the Computer Room and we will retrieve recordings only if they are needed to solve any problem.

Computers in the Computer Room can be used in the following order of priority:

  • Work (word processing, spreadsheets, programming, Neptun, etc.)
  • Using the Internet
  • Game, other

If you don’t want to play but want to work, ask someone who is currently playing or using the Internet to hand over the machine to you. If he/she is unwilling to do so, feel free to contact the System Administrator, who will use a stick to accentuate your request.

You can use the computers with the Júzer user id. First of all, make sure that the computer is turned on (if so, then at least one LED on the keyboard is usually lit, there may be an image on the display, and air is being blown out at the back, and things like that. If you can’t decide, you can also move the mouse to see if it wakes up). If nothing changes, turn it on with the power button on the front of the computer. After a while, the computer boots up and, optimally, you can see a list of users on the screen.

Please note that the computers will switch off automatically after 30 minutes of idling (i.e. if no activity is detected for a long time). Take this into account when using the computers. To avoid this when, for instance, watching a film, it’s worth moving the mouse from time to time. The shutdown process starts after the elapse of 29 minutes and after that, in the last one minute, you can only save any open jobs – there is no way to interrupt the shutdown process.

If you no longer use the machine, do the following:

  • Close all running applications.
  • If someone wants to use the computer right after you, then simply log out, which you can do with the Start Menu Logout command.
  • If no one is waiting for the computer, you can also choose the Start Menu – Shutdown line, and the computers will soon shut down automatically.


  • to smoke;
  • to eat and drink (This also means that it is FORBIDDEN to bring food and drink into the Computer Room !!!);
  • to install any software on computers (if you want something, contact the System Administrator!);

We also ask everyone not to leave any trash behind! Including papers used for your studies/work! 

Accessing the Internet


  • We tried to design the Dormitory’s WiFi network so that it would be available in all rooms – and this is the case in most rooms.
  • The network is encrypted and has many filters, so it is FORBIDDEN to connect to the network without registering with the System Administrator.
  • Anyone who moves into the Dormitory can request the System Administrator to provide access to the WiFi, if their computer has a WiFi card capable to be connected.


  • To connect to the computer network without authorisation and to carry out any illegal activity by using it.
  • To attack the network or network devices in any way.
  • To share the network connection in any way (either through router or computer).
  • To operate your own WiFi network.
  • To use file sharing software on the network (dc, torrent, etc.). Such act will result in a one-month suspension of the service and will be reported immediately to the staff of the IT Service Centre of Corvinus in addition to the leadership of the Dormitory. The user concerned may expect further legal action on the part of the University, the consequences of which must also be borne by the user who violates this rule.
  • To upload more than 5Gb or download more than 50Gb per week from the Internet (there is no unlimited internal network traffic).

In case of violation of the above, the service will be suspended for a certain period of time, which will not result in a refund of the fee paid for the service. The disabling of the user cannot be postponed, it will take effect immediately.

The basketball court is located in the paved area in front of the Dormitory. The quality of the asphalt is not the best, but the boards are perfectly fine, so with good company or even alone you can have a good rest in the Dorm by playing basketball. If you don’t have a ball, you can ask for one at the reception.

Soccer field – Yard

There is a soccer field in the grassy area behind the Dormitory. Not much is used lately, as Dormitory residents tend to play in the area surfaced by asphalt next to the basketball court using small gates (the key to the “cage” used for storing the gates can be requested at the Reception). If you don’t have a ball, you can ask for one at the Reception.
