University Accounts

As a student of ELTE, Faculty of Informatics you will need to access a few computer systems throughout your studies: the official education system, the PCs in the computer labs, WIFI on the Campus. Unfortunately (or sometimes fortunately) these systems are not all linked together, you will need the following accounts.

Neptun – University Education System

Neptun is the official education system of our University. It was introduced in late 2012 after another one (ETR). Some issues of students are still handled by our administration, but you will need to use Neptun for some issues (refer to the instructions of your coordinator).

Every student will need to have a Neptun account (username and password). You can reach the Neptun system at http://hallgato.neptun.elte.hu/. The Neptun username / identifier / code looks like a set of random 6 characters (e.g. GZ7D8A). Please remember your Neptun code.

How to get the Neptun account?

After your personal registration, your course coordinator will give your data to the global administration system, they will enroll you to the University system, and you will also get your Neptun account. The process should take about one or two weeks. It will be emailed for you. You can pick up the password to your account at the Quaestura office.

INF account – Faculty Computer System

Your INF account is necessary to carry on with your education, to work on practical programming classes in computer labs, and it can be also used for wifi access (IK_hallgato) near the rooms of our Faculty. You also get an <youraccount>@inf.elte.hu email address (webmail at http://mail.inf.elte.hu/, default is Hungarian, but you can change it to English) and a web storage at http://people.inf.elte.hu/<youraccount>/. Your teachers shall tell you the details.

How to get the INF account?

Please tell your desired username to your course coordinator. It should be a short set of characters resembling your name, but basically of your own choice. The course coordinator will give your data to the system operators of the Faculty and they will create your INF account, they also require the Neptun account. You will be notified by email when it is ready. Your teachers will help you with the first steps.

Caesar account – University Computer System

Your Caesar account or ELTE account or IIG account is not obligatory, but it is very useful. It can be used to access wireless networks at all ELTE campuses (ELTE), and even at some Universites abroad (eduroam). Furthermore you get an <youraccount>@caesar.elte.hu email address (webmail at http://webmail.elte.hu/) and a web storage at http://<youraccount>.web.elte.hu/.

How to get the Caesar account?

After you have your Neptun code you have two options. First: follow this guide by the Caesar operators. Or second: you can go personally to the Caesar operators at room 6.126 in the North Building, they are very friendly and will create your Caesar account quite quickly. See also their page for users. Your username is of your own choice, I would recommend using the same as your INF account.
