Student Housing

     Your accommodations, including utilities, are included in the price of the program. All our students live in small but very nice - and most importantly - private residential apartments in or near the center of the city. So no huge dorms... All apartments have 2 bedrooms and 2-3 students are expected to share a bedroom. All students have the same living space available to them. In other words, the apartments are all different but we make sure the apartment and bedroom sizes reflect the number of students living there. In addition, all apartments have either a large living room with a kitchen corner or separate living room and separate kitchen. All apartments are fully furnished and have a fully equipped kitchen with dishes, utensils, pots&pans, fridge, stove, oven and microwave. All apartments have wi-fi internet connection. All apartments also have a washing machine (either in the bathroom or built-in in the kitchen). Beddings are included but bring your own towels (also for our international trips....).
     It is important to realize, be aware and appreciate that our program student housing is really the best possible housing we can have! Compared to other options (such as dorms, hostels or housing on the outskirts of the city) our student apartments are unique, very private and offer the students the sense of really living in Prague for a while, not just passing through. They are all also very centrally located, within 15 minutes of the city center (or right in it) and our classroom. We hope that you will enjoy living there!

Addresses of apartments rented for Autumn 2017 Program:

Jungmannovo namesti 5, Praha 1

Karlovo namesti 15, Praha 2  

Jecna 10, Praha 2

Directions to your apartments from the Prague airport:

     If you prefer to take the cab or shuttle service, simply give the address of your apartment. Taxi stands are right in front of the arrival hall. Expect to pay about 700 CZK ($30) for the ride. But since the Prague airport is monopolized by one taxi company, they can charge as much as they want and often they have no hesitations to rip the incoming foreigners off. If you want to have your price totally under control, you can book a shuttle service and pay it online ahead of time. This shuttle is called the Prague Airport Transfer service and our students from the past programs report having positive experiences with it. You can check how the PAT works >> here <<.

Much cheaper way is to take the public transportation (of course it depends on how much luggage you have and how tired you are, but if you have only a few pieces, it might be worth it, it's not all that difficult). Please make sure you buy a ticket! - 32 CZK transfer ticket, which will take you all the way to your apartment. Also, make sure you validate the ticket on the bus! Conductors love to use this line to try to catch "black" passengers, i.e., cheaters who don't bother to buy a ticket. (The penalty fee is 800 CZK and the airport line is not one to take risks on....)

For students on Jungmannovo namesti 5 (Praha 1):

From the Airport: Take bus 119 from the Airport to Nadrazi Veleslavin subway station (the end stop of the bus line). Take the subway line A (green line) to Mustek station. (The Mustek station has two exit areas, one at the bottom of Vaclavske namesti (Wenceslas Square), the other one in the middle of that square. You should be in the back of the subway train in order to exit at the bottom of Vaclavske namesti. If you by a mistake exit to the street in the middle of the square, simply walk down, it's not far.) When getting out of the subway, follow signs that say "Jungmannovo namesti". Once you get on the street, just walk around the building (depending on the subway exit you take, you'll walk either left or right. Either way, you are about 100 feet from your apartment, which is directly across from a big church). Once on Jungmannovo namesti, the square number "5" is posted on the building on a blue metal square.

When getting out of the subway, follow signs that say "Resslova ulice" and "tram - Albertov, Vrsovice" (the street exit will be the second one on the left side...). Once you get on the street/side of the square, just walk down the street about 50 meters and you will be standing in front of your building.
