Each university offers students the possibility of lodging in university dormitories or residence halls. 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 yourself (usually online) or a study advisor/programme coordinator of the university will provide you with further information about the reservation process.

Prices depend on your choice of dormitory. The average monthly rent is around 150 EUR/170 USD.
The dormitory administration office can issue the confirmation of accommodation that you need for the visa process.
Another option is to find private accommodation or to share a apartment. Rents are paid monthly and vary dependent on the size, location in the city and the furnishings provided in the apartment. Prices range from 500 – 650 EUR/570 – 740 USD for a 1+1 apartment in the suburbs, or 650 – 800 EUR/740 – 910 USD for the same apartment in a more central location.
The size is usually indicated by numbers which can be a little bit confusing. Here is a short explanation of Czech real estate terms:
- Garsoniéra/garsonka/studio – one room that includes a kitchen.
- 1+kk – one bedroom with a separate kitchen or a kitchen corner, normally including an entrance hall.
- 1+1kk – Here “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 apartment, you can try your luck at Spolubydlici (Flatmates).
