BSM Housing/Roommate Form

Instructions:

Help us match you with the right roommate!

We'll do our best to match you with the type of person/environment you have chosen below. If you have chosen to live with a Hungarian family, some of the options listed below may not be applicable; leave them blank if they seem inappropriate.

Note: Each student has his/her own bedroom. If a roommate is requested, it is simply an "apartment mate". You will receive your housing assignment upon arrival in Budapest.
  • If you already have a roommate in mind, please check with them and write their name below. Please note the other person needs to list you as well.
  • There are two housing options; "Regular Apartment" or the option of a Homestay. (studio apartments are no longer available) The "Regular Apartment" choice means there are no special restrictions or conditions on the use of the apartment but as all apartments are in buildings with many people, you will be subject to the "House Rules." Apartments are in residential buildings with working families. The "Homestay" choice can vary from living with a Hungarian family in a room of your own, to staying in a studio type apartment room attached to a private residence. Typically you will have some meals with the family and this will help immerse you in Hungarian daily life. However, homestays generally involve less privacy than apartment living, and include a longer commute. Travel time to classes can be 30-45 minutes.

    Please choose below which housing option you would prefer.

    2) Live in the Pest suburbs (green, quieter, near hiking and bike trails, roomier accommodations, less costly, but a longer commute to school, 40-50 minutes to school, farther from shopping and cultural events).
