Practical information

The campus is called the “university town” and it is no wonder. As it lies in the outskirts of Miskolc, students do not always have the time for or  simply do not feel like going downtown for different services. This mini town offers all kinds of facilities and services on the spot.

Internet access

In Building A1, two large computer rooms are in operation on the 2nd floor, under the supervision of the University Computer Centre.

In addition, you will also have wifi internet access in your rooms in the hostels.

Internet access is also available in the Central Library and at many other spots around.

Printing & Photocopying

You can find a stationary shop in Building A1, mezzanine. There is also one on the ground floor of Building A1, near the entrance closest to the student hostels. It provides printing and photocopying and also scanning.

In addition, a number of photocopiers are installed at different parts of the university (e.g. in academic blocks and the library).

Shopping

Students are advised to go shopping to the nearby hypermarkets LIDL and TESCO, or go downtown for doing their everyday shopping. There is a small tobacco shop, next to the canteen.

Prices for the fix menu can be lower if you buy a lunch ticket in advance (full month - 12 occasions, or half month - 6 occasions tickets at the price of 790 HUF/lunch, but they can only be used in the month they were purchased). 

There are cafés, buffets, and bakeries in different parts of the university where cold and hot meals, beverages, coffee, tea, cakes, sandwiches, pizza and hamburgers are served. You can also find a few coffee and coke machines all over the campus.

Sports

Tennis courts, an athletics track, basketball and streetball courts, a football pitch, a sports hall, and a swimming pool can be found on the campus. 

There are fitness rooms and gyms in the Sports Hall (the round green building opposite the Uni Hotel), you can have a permanent card for the whole semester for 5000 HUF, and you can use these gyms 8.00-21.00 daily.  Fourteen tennis courts are also available for students at a similar rate.

There is a gym equipped for special weight training in student hostel E4, groundfloor, which you can use free of charge 15.00 - 18.00. As it is free of charge, most students like going there, so you have to go to sign up quickly, because later it will be overcrowded.

You can join the normal curricular Physical Education classes of Hungarian students (free of charge). Sports and games that can be chosen include: Fitness, Aerobics/Zumba, Thai boxing, Karate, Wing tsun kung fu, Basketball, Handball, Volleyball, Tennis, Badminton, Table tennis and American football.

A ticket for students (can be purchased with a student ID card) costs 950 HUF, although prices are lower if you buy season tickets and/or use the pool in special hours, early morning or late evening.

The permanent exhibition displaying a unique collection of the technical publications of the 16th – 19th centuries has thousands of Hungarian and foreign visitors every year paying tribute to the rich technical and scientific heritage of the first technical college of the world, which is the legal predecessor of the University of Miskolc.  The Historical Collection preserves the material relics of education and the life of youth and displays them in a permanent exhibition (“From Selmec to Miskolc, 1735 – 1985”). A number of temporary exhibitions can be visited by the public, too.
