Arranging accommodation is the responsibility of every student.

Halls of residence of Charles University

Faculty can mediate an accommodation at the Halls of Residence of Charles University. Charles University offers accommodation in their Halls of Residence. However, options of dormitory accommodation are limited and we are not able to guarantee that it will meet all your requirements. Usually, students are housed in double-occupancy rooms with shared kitchen and bathroom facilities. In general, dormitories are assigned automatically by the Accommodation Office.

The online application is only in Czech. In case you decide to stay at the university dormitory, do not hesitate to contact ISO, we will help to provide the accommodation contract for you.

The accommodation contract is one of the mandatory attachments to the application for study visa in Czechia. Therefore, we automatically arrange an accommodation contract at the university dormitory for successful applicants from visa-seeking countries during the admission process. The contract in hard copy is part of the Welcome package. Please note that dormitory accommodation is not compulsory for you and you can book any accommodation of your choice yourself.

For check-in you will need your passport or ID card, the housing voucher and your photograph. Please, READ also the information on COVID-19 protective measures taken at the dormitories before your arrival here.

There is a Housing Assistant programme offering assistance with orientation and other issues to foreign students at selected dormitories. Should you need their help or advice, contact them via their Facebook profiles at dormitory Hvězda Assistant, dormitory Na Větrníku Assistant, and dormitory Jižní Město - Otava & Vltava Assistant, or via email at dormitory , dormitory 17. listopadu, dormitory Kajetánka, and dormitory Švehlova.

Private accomodation condition:

If you decide not to use the University accommodation, there are several private dormitories. Prague is a vibrant city with many accommodation options available, and students can arrange accommodation of their choice. If you choose this option, we need you to inform us as soon as you have fixed your private accommodation.

Accomodation scholarship:

If approved by the Czech Government and Charles University (CU) for the particular semester, the CU pays out the accommodation scholarship as a contribution to the costs of accommodation during university studies. The scholarship is awarded to all Erasmus+ students of Charles University. Students do not need to apply for it; each student will receive it by default.

This contribution - about 500 CZK/month - is paid out in cash to Erasmus+ students of CU any major branch of the Komerční banka a.s. in the last 2 months of each semester. All Erasmus+ students are informed via e-mail once the scholarship is available.
