Rules and recommendations

Because of the current epidemiological situation, it is not allowed for school accommodation facilities to offer accommodation to students who have another residence in the Czech republic. This also applies to university students.

I have a residence in a dormitory

Students without residence in the Czech Republic are allowed to stay in student housing. If a residence is a place where you intend to live or it is a place where you feel at home. In this case hand in a declaration to your university so you can stay living there. 

If you stay in your dormitory, follow hygienic regulations- wear a facemask, disinfect your hands, and practice social distancing.

The Ministry of Education asks students who have the possibility to return home do so to limit their social contacts.

Universities regulate the operation of dormitories on their own. If you have any questions, please contact the dormitory operator. If you are at risk of a difficult financial situation in relation to these regulations, reach out to your university, since they can offer you a social scholarship. Financial assistance is also offered by the Ministry of Labour and Social Affairs.
