Accommodation in Prague

FAMU provides only short (temporary) acommodation in the Student´s Residence Halls, usually for about two weeks, for those who need to find permanent accommodation during their stay here. This offer is given to students as part of the information when they get accepted. (This information doesn´t apply to Erasmus and Free Mover students.)

What are the prices of accomodation?
Prices differ a lot, depending on location and type of accommodation. In 2012 approximate prize for three room flat shared by a group of student varies between 15 and 25 thousands CZK per month including all fees, the price for one room flat may vary from 7 to 14 thousands CZK. It is usuall here, that the price is being presented separately – fixed rent price and a bit variable fees for gas, electricity and housekeeping, which is based on monthly advance, with final surplus or back payment. If you find an apartment through an agency it is common that you pay a deposit of 2 rents in advance.

Is it difficult to find housing?
So far all of our students have found suitable housing in time.

The oldest houses in Prague 1 have only recently been reconstructed to their original beauty and may offer cosy and romantic dwellings. Though mainly in Lesser Town (Malá Strana) apartments often lack space and some comfort such as lift, easy car access and parking space. The houses across the river in the Old Town (Staré Město) are more spacious but parking and lift are often missing. The name of Pařížská street is the most prestigious name someone residing in Prague can have on its card, of course at the highest cost.
The residential apartment houses of art-nouveau, built on the turn of 19th century created the beauty of most of Prague 2. Offering more space with often added lifts can deliver today´s highest standards but quality must be closely checked. Especially Vinohrady became the favourite location for those searching comfortable apartments within walking distance to the heart of the city but offering enough places to relax, green parks and all sorts of entertainment. Another highly recommended quarter for residency seekers is Prague 5. The area of Smichov offers similar building standards as Prague 2, but less green parks and unfortunately heavier traffic than Vinohrady. Other quarters of Prague 5, such as Hřebenky or Malvazinky are characterized with less dense development of family houses or modern developments on green hills.
Shall you be looking for lower prices or having other reasons to seek in Prague 3, 4, 7, 8, 9 or 10 it is good to know, that a real bargains can be made there. A mixture of apartment houses, paneled blocks of flats and new developments has been created there. Residential houses are often mixed with industrial and commercial buildings. The advantage here can be more space and car parking availabilities.
