ELTE - The Community of Knowledge. And hopefully, we can also say: the community of physical exercise.

 

The Senate of Eötvös Loránd University founded our Company, the ELTE Sport Ltd. on 24th November 2008 in order to operate the sports facilities in the trusteeship of ELTE in a useful and cost effective way.

 

With this decision, the sports facilities of the University got into a common portfolio, so the opportunity opened to realise the service concept with a unified approach focusing on the sports consumer.

 

First of all we provide the infrastructural requirements of the educational tasks of the University; secondly, we also provide the infrastructural background of the recreational sporting activities of the students and professors and workers of the University. Thirdly, the remaining free capacity is offered to guests outside of the university, in order to ensure that with the help of the additional income from the ‘sports consumers’ the services meeting the requirements of the University could be available at a reduced price for the university citizens.

 

According to these aims, our Company provides capacity (field time) for university citizens in five sports establishments – in the Sports Yards at 10/A. and 10/B. Bogdánfy street, in the Sports Yard in Mérnök Street, in the Water Sports Centre, and in the Gym in Tüskecsarnok – for educational, research and recreational sport activities as well.

 

We provide the following services and perform the following activities in the following way:

We provide complete information in a transparent way about the sports fields and services available and about the ways of access. Our current news is published in the newsletters of ELTE, in the newsletters of the Faculty of Education and Psychology, in the sports newsletter of BEAC, on our website and on our Facebook page.

 

We employ unified charges settled by the University charge policy; they encourage physical activities and are favourable for university citizens. We do our best to get to know the users’ demands and we develop our sports establishments and our services according to these demands. It is our aim to increase the resources available for the development of the establishments, thus making conditions suitable for everybody wishing to do sports. ELTE SPORT Ltd. aims to have correct and meaningful connection with all the citizens and organisations of the University, especially with the faculties, with the students’ unions of the university and of the faculties, with the trade union, and the different groups of university students and workers.

 

We regard the active sportspersons of the University that is sportspersons related to the sections of BEAC or ELTE SE or other sports organisations, and the Institute of Health Promotion and Sport Sciences as our especially important partners.

 

The Company, as well as providing infrastructure for sporting activities, also organises leisure time sport events for students and professors and workers every year.

 

The Company is the main organiser of one of the highlighted leisure time sport events, the ELTE FIT Night; we welcome everybody to this event: http://fitnight.eltesport.hu/

 

One of our most important events for university professors and workers is the ELTE University and Collage Workers’ Sports Cup which is organised in five sports in April.

 

We organise and co-organise further sports events and programmes for the professors and workers of the university: ELTE May Festival, a summer basic water tour camp for workers, summer language and sports camp for the children of the workers, 5vös5km running race in male and female senior categories, Chancellery Health and Sports Day.

 

The ELTE SPORT Ltd. wishes to provide the above-mentioned activities in the highest standards to contribute to the health conscious and sporty community of our university.
