Student services


In Building A1, two big computer rooms are in operation on the 2nd floor, under the guidance 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 University Library.


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 (also in colour) and also scanning.
A number of photocopiers are installed at different parts of the university (e.g. in academic blocks and the library).


Students are advised to go shopping to the nearby supermarkets LIDL and TESCO, or go downtown for doing their everyday shopping. There is a small tobacco shop at the back of the cafeteria building.
The majority of shops, supermarkets, stores, shopping centres, plazas (Miskolc Plaza, Szinvapark) and the traditional market are concentrated in the centre of the town within a relatively short radius. If you start walking from CENTRUM (SPAR supermarket)  to any direction along the main roads, you will surely find what you need in a few minutes. Similarly, you will come across post offices and banks. There are some supermarkets or hypermarkets (Auchan, Metro, Tesco, Lidl, Aldi) on the outskirts of the town, but they can be easily and directly reached by city buses. In most supermarkets you can pay by bank card.


The university has a large cafeteria open Monday through Saturday (lunch hours: 11:00-14:30 Mon-Thu; 11:00-14:00 Fri; 11:00-13:30 Sat). You can choose a fixed menu (2 choices in soups and 3 choices in main dishes are offered) at a fixed price ), or you can choose from all kinds of hot meals á la carte. Prices for the fixed menu can be lower if you buy a lunch ticket in advance (full month - 12 occasions, or half month - 6 occasions tickets, 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 coffee and coke machines all over the campus.


The Rockwell club and the E/2 disco club offer regular opportunities to party for the students.
The MEN music festival is organised every year, usually in May.


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 fo rHUF 5,000 , and you can use these gyms 8.00-21.00 daily.

There is a gym in student hostel E4, ground floor, 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, Badminton, Table tennis and American football (link to a Hungarian only site)

There is a swimming pool as well at the edge of the campus. It is open 6:00-22:00 on Monday-Friday and 8:00-20:00 on Saturday-Sunday. 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.

Unfortunately, there is no bank on the territory of the campus, but you can find several ATMs. For any other financial transactions, you have to go to the city and find a bank (Erste, Raiffeisen, Citibank, UniCredit)

Open hours: Mon – Fri 8:00 – 15:30. (lunch break: 12:00-12:30)

The Selmec Museum Library stores the complete stock, some 30,000 volumes, from the library of the ancient Alma Mater of Selmecbánya from the years 1735 – 1919. The permanent exhibition displaying the unique collection of the technical publications of the 16th – 19th centuries has thousands of Hungarian and foreign visitors every year. 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”).
