Dormitories/Halls of Residence

UCT Prague provides international students accommodation in dormitories located in the southern part of Prague, in the district of Chodov.

There are two buildings, Sázava and Volha, which offer either double or triple rooms. Two neighboring rooms share a bathroom, a toilet, and a small corridor with a fridge. They are equipped with basic furniture.

International students living in the dormitories do not need to register with the Foreign Police to announce their arrival in the Czech Republic; this is taken care of by the Administration of UCT Prague Facilities.
