Students are asked to indicate their preference among the two housing options:

  • renting a furnished apartment and sharing it with other Budapest Semesters participants, or
  • living with a Hungarian family as a member of the family.

Opting for an apartment offers most of the comfort to which students are accustomed and each student has their own bedroom. Living with a family provides substantially less privacy; however, it could be the most rewarding choice by enhancing the cross-cultural experience.

Please note: “family” is loosely defined and could consist of the traditional mother, father, and children; elderly couples, newly married couples, or a pensioner.

All homes will be within easy reach of the university using the frequent and inexpensive public transportation. Program administrators in Budapest will help students with housing and any problems that arise.
