Each university offers students the possibility of lodging in university dormitories or a hall of residence. You may of course go for private housing of your own choice, but where is the fun in that?
You may either reserve a room by yourself (usually online) or a study advisor/programme coordinator of the university will provide you with further info.

Prices highly depend on the dormitory of your choosing. Basic monthly rent is about 150 EUR/170 USD.
The dormitory administration can issue the confirmation of accommodation that you need for the visa process.
Another option is to find a private accommodation or to share a flat. Rents are paid monthly and vary dependent on the size, location in the city and the equipment already present in the apartment. You may pay anything from 500 – 650 EUR/570 – 740 USD for a 1+1 flat in the suburbs, or a 650 – 800 EUR/740 – 910 USD for the same flat in the more centre adjacent areas.
The size is usually indicated by numbers which can be a little bit confusing. Here is a short vocabulary of Czech real estate kingdom:
- Garsoniéra/garsonka/studio – one room that includes a kitchen.
- 1+1 – one room with a separate kitchen or a kitchen corner, normally including an entrance hall.
- 1+1kk – “kk” means kitchenette, and the kitchen is a part of one room. So it is an apartment with one separate room, one room that includes a kitchenette and an entrance hall.
If you are looking for a room in a shared flat, you can try your luck at Spolubydlici (a Flatmate).
