Facilities and Infrastructure
The Central European
University (CEU) has a rich library which offers books and journal collections
in many fields of interest, including mathematics and its applications.
Lately, an additional departmental library has been organized to offer
our students some of the most important books, including several copies
of textbooks which are frequently used by our faculty. Furthermore, the
Renyi Institute (which is close to our departmental offices) has one of
the richest mathematical library in the region, with about 40,000 volumes
and 350 periodicals. There are many other libraries in Budapest which are
CEU has classrooms, study rooms, and computer labs. They are equipped
with the usual facilities, including blackboards, computers, overhead
projectors, printers, scanners. There is an IT department which is responsible
for the overall soft- and hardware development, maintenance, and acquisitions.
A significant portion of the university budget is used every year to maintain
and develop IT facilities in accordance with the standards of research-intensive
universities. In addition to CEU's computer resources, our students and
faculty have free use of the Renyi Institute computers.
Our students can benefit from the very rich cultural and scientific
life of Budapest. There are several universities in Budapest, in particular
the Eötvös University (ELTE) and the Budapest University of
Technology and Economics (BME). They organize frequently seminars and
conferences. Our department is already integrated into this scientific environment.
We also organize seminars and workshops.
CEU has a Residence Center where students may live. This is essentially
a modern hotel, with a restaurant as well as conference rooms, swimming
pool, sauna, fitness room - all freely available.
