The Student Union encourages everyone to meet their professors and schoolmates outside the university as well, to make new friendships and establish new contacts.

The Károli Community Days are held each semester before the autumn and spring break. During these occasions, a variety of lectures are organized for the students, related to their field of studies and future professions, held by their professors or recognized professionals of their fields. For example, law students have the opportunity to attend presentations held by judges, lawyers, or prosecutors who introduce the course of their careers. The last day of the event is Sports Day, where the participants can play football, handball, basketball, volleyball, or try zumba. The more courageous students can even join a battle of paintball.

The students of the University can take part in a wide range of amateur sports teams in futsal, basketball, handball, volleyball, or water polo.
