Student dormitory – basic facts
There are two different dormitory blocks for exchange students (Jarov III. F and Jarov III. G). They are located in Prague 3, about 15 minutes from the University of Economics by a direct tram line 9. Both blocks are about 25 minutes by a tram far from the city center. Single-bed rooms (or double-bed room with only one bed occupied) are available.
Some of you may not be interested to live in the dormitory. Please, find more information about living outside the dormitory.
Blankets, pillows, and bed linens are provided (students can request clean bed linens twice a month). However, dishes, pans, plates, cups, or eating utensils are not provided. Laundry rooms are in each dormitory. Some other equipment can be borrowed for a minimum fee or even for free from the reception e.g. iron, vacuum cleaner, balls (volleyball, basketball), hand pump, First Aid Kit etc.
For more information, please see the lectures from the Dormitory Housing Meetings (download – Dormitories).
Internet connection is available in most of the rooms, however the network card (10/100-base-t) and RJ-45 non-cross over patch cable is needed. You should have received an informative e-mail to your VSE e-mail account (how to access the university e-mail account – here) from the Department of Network Infrastructure where all details about connecting to the network were indicated. In case you have not received the e-mail, the content can be found here.
Dormitory Accommodation fees
If you have applied for the dormitory accommodation via the information system ISKAM, a place is reserved for you. (The section housing in the InSIS online Application serves only for assess the demand for the dormitory accommodation.) Nevertheless, a deposit must be paid in advance otherwise the place will not be guaranteed. More information can be found here.
The rent is to be paid AT ONCE at the beginning of the first week of classes. Please note that the payment can be done either in the cash point of the dormitory office (at the reception/dormitory manager´s office of each block) or at a bank located at the university. It is necessary to keep all receipts as a proof of payment.
The Accommodation Agreement can be found here.
All payments (including deposit), can be checked via a dormitory database called ISKAM. Use the same log-in details as for university information system (InSIS). For more details about ISKAM and your deposit, refer to this website. If you have any questions regarding the details of deposit payment or assigning the rooms, please contact Central Accommodation Office directly at email@example.com.
Dormitory reservation starts on September 3, 2018 for the Fall Semester 2018. Students will be charged accommodation fee from this date even if they move in later. Students can move in every day, even during weekends, but they are obliged to visit the dormitory manager as soon as possible after the arrival to arrange all necessary formalities (signing the Accommodation Agreement, picking up the dormitory ID card – a passport photo needed!). Please, note that the dormitory manager is only available during his/her office hours (see below)! For more information see The Central Accommodation Office website.
Early arrival to/ late departure from dormitories
There is a possibility to move in before September 6, 2017 or move out after the day stated in your Accommodation Agreement. Those who applied for dormitories can arrive five days prior to the Orientation Week. However, IN URGENT CASE, there is a possibility to arrive earlier. Please, bear in mind that it is just for urgent case, because dormitories are also having hotel guests, so they wouldn’t be able to provide a place for too many students coming earlier. For those who need to use the dormitories before/after the official dates, please follow these instructions:
1) STUDENTS MOVING IN EARLY – if you are coming during summer holidays, let the Central Accommodation Office (firstname.lastname@example.org) know at least 7 days in advance. You may not receive the room you will be living during the semester, so you might have to move in to another.
2) STUDENTS MOVING OUT LATER – have to let know the Central Accommodation Office (email@example.com) by email by the end of November (for Fall Semester) OR April (for Spring Semester). It could so happen that you wouldn’t receive the same room as during the semester and thus you would have to move in to another one.
