University Dorms In Hungary To Reopen Under Strict Conditions
University dormitories will operate at full capacity from September, foreign students can move in, and no mandatory coronavirus testing will be conducted, Magyar Nemzet reports.

In March, one of the first epidemiological measures was to evacuate college dormitories and, with the exception of a few foreign students, everybody went home.

The students can return for the new school year next month.

Some precautionary measures will be in force: guests visits will be restricted, special rooms for separating students will be set aside in case of illnesses and students will have to wear masks in common rooms.

Dormitory fees will not be raised. The Eötvös Loránd University will also offer private accommodation in order to reduce overcrowding.
