Accommodation in dormitories
Accommodation is provided in Charles University Halls of Residence. Students are housed in double-occupancy rooms. Single rooms are not available. Unit system consists of twin rooms (i.e. double room with two separate beds) sharing bathroom facilities (shower and wc). A small kitchenette is usually at the end of each corridor. Students can also use a lavatory and hanging rooms in the building (keys are available at the reception against a fee). Bedding and bed linen are provided (bed linen is exchanged regularly); towels and kitchen utensils (such as pans, plates, cups etc.) are not.
The allocation of rooms is responsibility of the management of the residence hall - if you wish to share a room with a colleague (schoolmate) of yours, please, ask the Accommodation Office (Reception) on your arrival or contact the European Office with the request in advance.
The accommodation will be provided for the period corresponding to your study stay at Charles University.
The rooms are always available starting approximatelly one week before the beginning of the semester/study period, orientation week included (for learning the exact dates see Academic Calendar, appropriate host faculty websites or contact your host faculty or host department coordinator). Students need not make any special request to move in during this week.
The rent is paid directly in cash (CZK) at the Accommodation Office/Reception at the appropriate residence. No cards accepted.
Students make the first payment upon their arrival and must make subsequent monthly payments in advance - always at the latest on the 25th of the preceding month (the administration staff of the dormitory can send you an email reminder with dates of payment for the next month).
