  • McDaniel students have a priority, so not all PE classes might be available for BSM/BSME students.
  • Classes meet at the gym of the Veterinary University (opposite corner of Bethlen Gábor tér than the BSME building, same building as the cafeteria, Budapest, István u. 2, 1078, Building G). Ball games meet in the gym, salsa/yoga/aerobics meet in the studio, which has a separate entrance from the outside of the building, closer to István street.
  • The McDaniel calendar is slightly different from the BSM/E calendar, so check with the instructor about meeting times.

You can also use the weight room at the gym, see this page for more information.
