Accommodation for students in the Czech Republic

Accommodation for students in the Czech Republic

Being a foreign student in Czech Republic you have several options for arranging accommodation in the country.

Accommodation options

Some universities provide student dormitories or you can arrange your own housing in a private flat. The costs will depend on the location and quality of the accommodation.


Most universities in the Czech Republic offer students the possibility of being accommodated in dormitories. Single rooms are rare, so you will probably share the room with a room-mate. The accommodation is usually apartment-type, consisting of two twin rooms with a shared kitchenette, shower and toilet. Rooms are usually equipped with all basic furniture items (bed, desk, chair and shelves). Kitchens are equipped with a cooker, refrigerator, running water and basic kitchen furniture. The rest, like curtains, carpets, blankets, pillows, cleaning equipment, dishes, water boilers, toasters etc., is up to the student.

Prices of Czech dormitories

You can always find the information about this kind of accommodation either via the Department of International Relations or via your chosen university’s website. Prices for dormitories in Czech Republic vary but an average monthly fee is around 120 EUR per month in the room with roommates (usually two people living in one room). Prices include bedding and bed linen, access to a shared kitchenette or kitchen and bathroom facilities and utility costs. Living in the dormitory is a great way to get to know other people and share your experience.

Getting an apartment

Foreign students in Czech Republic can also find their own accommodation, either a room in a shared flat or a flat. It is common for international students to share bigger flats especially in the city center. Own housing has the advantage of choosing your flat mates and the area. Prices for flats vary considerably according to the location, size and equipment of the flat. The rent is about 500-800 EUR per month for a 2-3 bedroom flat.
