The Central European University was established in 1991 as a multi-campus university offering graduate level programs chiefly in the social sciences, law, and the humanities in Prague, Budapest, and later Warsaw. Students – initially just over 100 – hailed primarily from Central, Eastern, and Southeastern Europe. Later, all activities were gradually moved to Budapest, which became the main campus by 1995.
Central European University’s buildings are located in the heart of the city—within steps of the Basilica, the Parliament, and the Danube —and is a premier destination for conferences and events. With high-quality facilities and experienced staff in award-winning new buildings, CEU offers not just a venue, but an experience. At CEU we can find a modern and welcoming environment, and open and interconnected spaces.
The state-of-the-art building opened in 2016 offers high-tech space for learning, teaching, research, and the exchange of ideas. The new and renovated buildings are acoustically treated to dampen sound in corridors and open spaces and enhance sound quality in the auditorium and classrooms. The auditorium facing Nador street seats 400, and the room can be divided into two separate, acoustically sound rooms for conferences or performances.
