VSE provides accommodation in dormitories for all Exchange students who apply for it and pay a deposit (see below). Information on this page is relevant for dormitories only. If you are not interested in living in dormitories, you can find accommodation on your own. The International Office does not provide any counselling or help with that due to capacity reasons.
Single-bed rooms (or double-bed room with only one bed occupied) are available, too.
- Blankets, pillows, and bed linens are provided (students can request clean bed linens twice a month).
- Dishes, pans, plates, cups, or eating utensils are not provided.
- Laundry rooms available in each block.
- Some other equipment can be borrowed for a low fee or even for free from the reception e.g. iron, vacuum cleaner, balls (volleyball, basketball), hand pump, First Aid Kit etc.
- 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 shall receive an informative e-mail to your VSE e-mail account (access through Office 365 with InSIS email@example.com) from the Department of Network Infrastructure where all details about connecting to the network were indicated.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
Dormitory reservation starts as published on the website of the dormitory. Students will be charged accommodation fee from the earliest move-in 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 dormitories’ website.
Early Arrival / Late Departure
There is a possibility to move in before the earliest move-in date for Exchange students 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 CASES, there is a possibility to arrive earlier. Please, bear in mind that it is just for urgent cases, 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 (email@example.com) 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 in later
You need to let the Central Accommodation Office (firstname.lastname@example.org) know by email by the end of November (for Fall Semester) OR April (for Spring Semester). It might happen that you wouldn’t receive the same room as during the semester and thus you would have to move in to another one.
Those, who are staying for the whole Academic year and are intended to prolong their stay in dormitories for the Spring Semester, have to follow the following instructions:
- Sign a new Accommodation Agreement and visit your Dormitory Manager within the Office Hours (contacts below) during January.
- If you are not in the Czech Republic during allocated times, arrange a meeting with the Dormitory Manager before your departure.
- 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.
- International Student Support SUZ VSE is dedicated to support all non-Czech students across VSE campuses. The support includes all issues related to the student accommodation. One-to-one appointments are offered as well as detailed advice by email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or by phone.
- Please note that Czech is the official language while seeing the Dormitory Manager within her Office Hours. It is highly recommended to bring your Buddy or ask Housing Coordinators to help you with interpreting.
- Housing Coordinators are VSE students living in your dormitory. Their role is to assist you with communication with Dormitory Managers/Receptionists. Feel free to contact them throughout the semester via e-mail or in person.
