The Mátyásföld Hall of Residence hosts full-time students of the Budapest Business School’s Faculty of International Management and Business in Mátyásföld in the heart of the capital’s 16th district. It is located in a garden city green zone far from the noise of the city, just two minutes’ walk from the BBS Faculty of International Management and Business, which means that it is hugely popular with students. Every academic year a total of 242 students find a second home in the welcoming, four-floor building.
The hall of residence can be accessed by public transport from Örs vezér Square in approx. 15 minutes, with convenient and rapid transport provided by the suburban railway (HÉV) and two bus routes. The hall of residence is just a few minutes by foot from the Imre Street stop of the suburban railway, arriving by bus No. 45 the stop is Diósy Lajos Street, with the hall of residence opposite the stop, while with bus No. 276, from the Újszász Street stop it takes just a few minutes on foot to reach the building.
Life in the Mátyásföld Hall of Residence is made easier not only by its close proximity to the Faculty of International Management and Business. There is a LIDL supermarket a few minutes’ walk away, and a few streets down there is a Coop and an ALDI. The centre of Mátyásföld district, which is similarly just a few blocks from the hall of residence, has a central post office, an OTP bank, Rossmann, CBA, a medical clinic and other smaller shops. Örs vezér Square boasts the Árkád Mall, Sugár shopping centre and IKEA along with plenty of other shopping and entertainment outlets.

A place in the hall of residence can be won by tendering for it. This can be made by everyone who has full-time, active student status at the BBS Faculty of International Management and Business.
Hall of residence applications must be submitted electronically, using the Neptun code via the Modulo system. The application comprises two separate forms, a social means report and request for admission to the hall of residence. It is not mandatory to attach the social means report but it is worth doing because of the point awarded due to distance from place of residence.
The ranking of applicants is based on the total points accrued on the social means report and hall of residence data sheet. The most important factor on the hall of residence data sheet is good study achievements but points are also awarded for communal work and outstanding results in various professional competitions.
The hall of residence fee must be paid on the last working day of every month via the Neptun system.
Mátyásföld Hall of Residence is located in a well maintained, four-storey building with round-the-clock porter and security service plus CCTV. There is free car parking around the building.
There are a total of 116 rooms on five floors in the building.
The majority of rooms are doubles. Every room has a small hall where there is a basin, large built-in cupboard with masses of shelving space and a fridge-freezer. These rooms provide comfortable accommodation with two beds, two desks, chairs and wall shelving.
Every floor has separate bathrooms for women and men: toilets, basins, showers.
If somebody needs a separate bathroom then there are apartments, each one comprising two double rooms opening onto a common area for four persons in total, with bathroom between the two rooms. However, there are only three of these four-person apartments available, all located on the first floor. We also have two three-bed accessibilized rooms on the ground floor, accessible via a wheelchair ramp. If there are no applications from disabled students in a given academic year, these rooms can also be rented out to other students.
