Accommodation for the first year students can be arranged at the halls of residence.

Students are accommodated in pleasant double-bed rooms (approx. for 250 € per month). There is also the alternative of renting a flat.
Warning: - the halls of residence housing capacity is limited and allocation of the rooms is completely in the hands of the Halls of Residence Headquarters. Therefore, it is advisable to apply for accommodation in good time.

Prague – a wonderful place to live
Prague is the capital of the Czech Republic, situated in the Heart of Europe, with 1.3 million inhabitants. It is the biggest industrial, commercial and financial center in the country. Also, Prague is known as a beautiful historic town and a cultural, social and politic center of European importance. It is also the seat of the most important national and state cultural institutions with long traditions – Prague Castle, Charles University, National Theater, National Museum etc.
There is no doubt that you will find Prague very attractive, easy to live in and still relatively inexpensive. The living costs in the Czech Republic are on average comparable to those of other Central and Eastern European countries. For students, it is advisable to have available approximately 8500 CZK (around 300 €) per month to cover food, public transport and accommodation.
||CZK 3000 - 7000
||CZK 3800 - 4200
||CZK 250 - 300
||CZK 700 - 1000
||CZK 7750 – 12500
Prices for accommodation vary depending whether you use student halls of residence or rent privately and whether you share a flat. The final expenditure per month, of course, will depend on your personal spending habits.
