CEU Student Locker Use Guidelines

CEU Lockers on Vienna Campus

If you are in Vienna and would like to have a locker, please come to the Student Center in room B601 during our opening hours (from Monday to Friday, 1-4 PM) to pick up a key.  

Please contact the Student Center Team right away in case you lose your locker key. A fee of 30 EUR will be due.   

Once you no longer need the locker or leave Austria, please return the key to the Student Center. This is part of the leaving process and therefore you will not get your general deposit back or receive graduation certificates and diplomas without returning the locker key. 

CEU Student Locker Use Guidelines for Budapest

All lockers made available for student use on CEU premises are the property of CEU. They are made available for storing school supplies and personal items necessary for use at the university. Lockers at CEU premises are not to be used to store items which cause, or can reasonably be foreseen to cause, an impediment to university operations (especially flammable, explosive materials or equipment or weapons), or which are forbidden by Hungarian regulations or university rules. Being the property of CEU, these lockers do not bestow privacy to the students temporarily using them: CEU retains the right to inspect the locker and its contents at any time to ensure that the locker is being used in accordance with its intended purpose, and to eliminate fire or other hazards, maintain sanitary conditions, attempt to locate lost or stolen materials or any other material forbidden by school rules.

At CEU, there are three type of lockers designated for student use.

1. Lockers for academic year use located in departmental premises: these are primarily allocated to students from those departments. Below is the list of departments and the number of lockers available (Note: the list below indicates the current state of locker allocation at CEU. This policy will be in effect also for those lockers installed at a later date)

3. Day use lockers in front of the library: click here for more information.

In all cases, lockers are available on a first come, first served basis. To receive a locker, students should visit the Student Center (Dean of Students Office) located on the third floor of the Nador 11 Building. Yearly use lockers are to be used for one academic year. At the end of the academic year, students should return their locker keys to the Dean of Students Office as part of the leaving procedure. Failure to do so will result in a non-refundable 1500 HUF fee. Students must fulfill all academic and financial requirements before graduation, including any locker fees due. Failure to satisfy academic and financial requirements may result in a delay in releasing the diploma, and students with outstanding balances at graduation will not be eligible for University services including transcript copies or verification of degrees.

Extensions of yearly use

Students in programs whose length of studies exceeds one academic year, i.e. students in two-year MA and PhD programs, can request an extension of their locker privileges. This should be communicated to the Dean of Students Office before the end of the regular academic year. Failure to communicate the intention of continuing to use a locker on time might result in a 1500 HUF late fee and the emptying of the locker's contents. After a locker is emptied, its contents will be placed in the Lost and Found storage at the Nador 11 entrance.

Waiting list for academic year use lockers

The names of students who request but do not receive lockers will be placed on a waiting list, based on the time of request. If a locker becomes available, the student on the waiting list will receive it and be notified by e-mail.

Replacement of keys

Locker keys are given for one academic year. Loss of a key or damage to a locker will result in a 1500 HUF replacement fee, applicable to all lockers. Replacement keys should be ordered at the Student Center.

Transfer of the lockers

Students shall not transfer the key or the right to use their lockers to other students or any other third person. In case the student allows any third person to place anything to the locker the student shall take sole responsibility towards CEU for the items placed, and towards the third person for the damage or loss of such items.


CEU does not assume any responsibility for belongings that are left in daily use lockers over night. CEU and the Security Service are not responsible for lost, stolen, or damaged personal property.
