Introducing sport at ELTE

Budapest University Athletics Club (BEAC)

BEAC was established in 1898 as one of the oldest athletics club in Hungary. Its first chairman was the worldwide famous scientist and statesman, Loránd Eötvös.  Even since its first years the newly operating club has become an important factor of professional sport life. First sports were athletics, gymnastics and sword play. The club had an important effect in the naturalization of many sports in Hungary as it offered a wide range of activities. The association gave five Olympic champions so far. Our aim is to catch attention of university students and invite them to work out in our gym and choose a sport offered by our professional coaches. We welcome everybody from all ages and nations, so foreign students and lecturers, come and join us! Loránd Eötvös was the Minister of Religion and Public Education in 1894-1895. He resigned from his Presidential Academic title in 1905 but he continued his scientific activity at the university during the rest of his life. Following Anglo-Saxon traditions Loránd Eötvös at the age of 50, as the rector of the Scientific University of Budapest, founded the sport club of the University

Olympic gold medals of BEAC:

  • Sándor Prokopp, shooting, 1912
  • Ferenc Csík, 100m freestyle, 1936
  • dr. Imre Rajczy, member of sword team, 1936.
  • Aladár Kovács, member of pentathlon team, 1952
  • Angéla Németh, javelin-throwing 1968

Since 1989 our athletes won more than 400 Hungarian championship titles in various sports.

The organization functions on two platforms: on one hand to ensure sport opportunities for university students; on the other hands endeavors to achieve traditional high-level results in competitive sports. On the other hand according to its traditions the club tries to reach appropriate levels.

Student Union (EHÖK)

EHÖK coordinates the actions of faculty student unions, provides advocacy on university level (within the faculty the faculty union is responsible for this), and helps the work of facility unions. Besides advocacy, EHÖK functions in many other ways – organizes university programs, operates the university news portal, ELTE Online, organizes and coordinates inland and foreign scholarships, and constantly enriches its activity within services for students: we have started to operate the ELTE Student Service and Career Center where you can visit us regarding career-consulting, trainings and mental hygiene.

ELTE Physical Education and Sports Center

ELTE Sports Department was established in 1997 with the union of ELTE TFK Sports Department and ELTE Central Sports Department.
With creating a new ELTE facility structure in September, 2003, ELTE Physical and Sports Center came alive and changed its name when the PPK was established.

Besides teacher-trainings its major tasks are to organize and keep ELTE university students’ sports training, and to organize free-time sports activities within university facilities – in addition to university-organized sports classes.

This Sports Center organizes different level championships from the simplest, free-time sport activity championships to the College and University Championships.
During winter we organize ski-camps, while in summer we have river trips.
