For incoming students who require superior quality accommodation, rented flats are an alternative. Renting a flat can provide students with the peace, comfort and privacy they require.
How do I start looking for a place to rent?
The monthly rental price of a two-room apartment might cost between 80.000 to 200.000 HUF (250-620 EUR);
The surroundings, the distance from the Univeristy and the facility might affect this price.
Please note that utility bills and property management fee are not included in the rental fee.
Always take into consideration that you might need to sign up for an Internet connection at a local communication service provider and bear its expenses.
To pay a deposit is always required by the accommodation provider, which usually is equal to 1 or 2 monthly fee. This has to be paid in advance before moving in, and it is released after moving out from the apartment
Please note that you might need to use public transportation to reach your destination comfortably.

How do I proof my accommodation at the immigration office?
In order to obtain the residence permit, you will need to present a valid rental contract signed by the accommodation provider. This includes the address, the monthly expenses, terms and conditions (period of renting). Please note that each and every owner of the property has to sign this contract, therefore it is suggested that you check the relevant names indicated on the property deed (a landholding document).
The language of public administration is Hungarian, as a result, it is not obligatory to submit the contract in English. For the sake of your own protection, it is highly recommended to have the contract translated to English as well.
Important to note: the contract to be signed has to meet the requirements of the immigration office of Hungary (Bevándorlási Hivatal or BÁH), as it would otherwise not be acceptable.
You will also have to present the following documents:
- official copy of the property deed (földtulajdoni lap) issued by the Hungarian Land Administration Office (Földhivatal)
- utility fees ruled (electricity, gas, water)
- form of residential address registration (szállásbejelentő lap)
- private documents (passport, Letter of Award, Decision of Admission)
- proof of health insurance
- An administrative fee also has to be paid to initiate the renting process.
We would like to encourage you to ask for help during the searching of a flat.
Native Hungarian ESN Pécs mentors will be able to represent and to promote your interests when it comes to deal with administrative procedures.
