The Board of European Students of Technology, BEST, a non-profitable and non-political student organization of top-level technical universities in Europe, operates here as well as the I.A.E.S.T.E. Slovakia, which is an international association for student technical traineeships within exchange schemes. There is also a popular IRŠ TLIS at the hostel, meaning “Radio studio in a thousand-bed hostel building”, born over 30 years ago out of initiative of several devoted enthusiasts.
