Covid-19 Advice and Updates

At Central European University, our community is our greatest asset – and our greatest priority. We are closely monitoring and following advice from Hungarian and Austrian authorities as well as the World Health Organization. With this in mind, we have moved all our classes online in response to Covid-19. Our Budapest and Vienna campuses are closed to students and the public, while our staff and faculty continue to be contactable by email.

As the situation continues to evolve, information for the CEU community is updated on our intranet OneCEU (CEU log-in is required). Please check this daily for the latest information and community guidance.
