When will I receive the housing assignment?

You will receive the application for housing after the official deadline of application for the UPCES study abroad program.

Can I choose my own roommates?

Students are matched with roommates based on their lifestyle preference section you will fill out in the housing application. If possible, we will fulfill the request of living with specific UPCES students.

When can I move in to the apartment?

There is a specific day reserved during the first week of orientation for all students to move into their apartments.

Do I have to stay at Hotel Prokopka?

Yes, it is required by UPCES that you check-in first into Hotel Prokopka when you arrive (first 4 nights are covered in your tuition). This also guarantees you to be registered with the Foreigners' Police and ensures that you visa is valid. The hotel representative will do this for you. 

This is also a great opportunity for you to meet your fellow UPCES students and immers into the program from the beginning. The hotel will be the "Meeting Point" for the orientation events. Hotel Prokopka is both a hotel and a hostel and has a very friendly and English speaking staff who are available to answer any of your questions and help you if necessary.


UPCES tuition does not include housing costs. The housing cost is paid via credit/debit card or bank transfer directly to your landlord. Housing costs for a full semester average approximately $3,000 per student (for a single - occupancy in a downtown apartment). Prices can vary between housing options, but all approved housing options have comparable locations and amenities.

Sample of lease: Prague Lease Contract

"I loved living independently in Prague with new friends. All of the flats we lived in were in fantastic locations; I shared so many great memories with my flatmates, and I couldn’t have asked for a better way to experience Prague." 

-Mimi d'Autremont, UPCES Alumna
