Accommodation subsidies

What

The Ministry of Education, Youth and Sport (Ministerstvo školství, mládeže a tělovýchovy) provides subsidies for university development and for board and lodging of students on the basis of the Rules for Contributions and Subsidies for Public Universities.

Who

Individual universities establish and manage accommodation facilities for students (student dormitories) providing discounted accommodation to students. Not all university students are entitled for accommodation at a student dormitory. The university considers the distance the student would have to commute and the accommodation availability. If a student does not meet the criteria for accommodation provision he/she must find accommodation in private.

How

Individual universities have their own rules and conditions for accommodation provision and price calculation. The usual price of student dormitory accommodation in CZK 2,500 – 5,000 per bed.

When

Details on accommodation options and application for student dormitory accommodation are received by the student at the moment of admission for the university course.

Good to know

University students in the Czech Republic often resolve their accommodation by a joint rent of an apartment which in some cities may be cheaper than student dormitory accommodation.
