Accommodation

For Erasmus and other international students there are two main possibilities of accommodation to choose between: 1) staying in University dorms or 2) to find private accommodation

The Student Residences of the University of South Bohemia

There are four similar ten-storey buildings situated inside of the university campus called K1-K4. Moreover we have Residence Hall K5, which is more far away from the campus (about 15 minutes walk) and Hall K6 (mostly reserved for our PhD. students).

If you apply for dormitory you can´t choose in which residence you want to stay, the place will be assigned to you according to actual room availability. If you want to be in a room with your friend it is not a problem, write this request in your application.

In case you can´t find application form for dormitory: Housing application form for International students ; download it, fill it out and send it to International department office

Before arrival to dormitory please study carefully these rules of accommodation!

Please arrive exactly on your selected date of start (do not arrive ahead or later), if sudden change of your travel arrangement appears, please contact us immediately. Students studying in winter semester should check in before beginning of the semester, the latest date of arrival is 2 days after the official start of winter semester. For summer term it is not so crowded at dormitories, so the arrivals can be little more flexible.

In case you will be arriving later or earlier then your previously chosen date of arrival you need to let us know so we can hold your room for you. If you do not confirm your interest, your place will go to someone else. In case of really late arrival after start of the semester you will be asked to send a deposit payment for your accommodation so we can hold your place. In case you do not send deposit ahead, you will lose the place.

After arriving you will be asked to sign a contract about accommodation (currently it is in English, German and Russian language, we are working on translations to other languages as well). Please read it carefully so you know what you have signed.

In the very close neighbourhood of the Student Residences is the University Canteen.

Private accommodation

It is not very simple for Erasmus/International student to find a suitable room or flat from his home country, but as fast as he or she comes to the city, it is less complicated. Another option is contacting your mentor or International Club in order to help you. However, there are 3 main possibilities:

To become a roommate in one of already established student flats. Adverts can be found on the notice boards around the university or inside the Residence Hall buildings.

To hire a real estate agent. The fee for arranging an accommodation is the standard amount of a month rent for selected flat. With estate agent can be the process of looking for the flat shortened.

To look for rents in adverts. There are many adverts on the internet sites, although the most of them is in czech. Your mentor can help you with that or you can train your czech language skills. 

Also you can use Google translator for quick translations. Simply insert webpage address and it will be translated to any language you select. 

Please notice that we can help you a little with searching private accomodation but we are NOT a real estate agency! So please do not waste time of your mentor for looking and checking up rooms for you. You are responsible for finding your own accomodation.

If you are looking for flat in Czech Republic you find some important information here in this brochure

How does typical flat in Budweis looks like?

Usually flats are used by several students, for example flat with 3 rooms is usually inhabited with 6 students, flat with 2 bedrooms with 4 students… Separated rooms are usually rare, but can be found. The cost for separated room is higher than for interconnecting (through) room. Also rooms for single person are not so often. Rent per month per student in a flat vary usually between 2000 to 4000 CZK, depending on location, occupancy and size of the flat, The more people are in the flat the cheaper price you will get.  Besides renting a flat/room in blocks of flat you can also rent a flat/room in family houses all around České Budějovice. Usually family lives downstairs and they rent the 1st floor to students. Sometimes they rent whole house to students. These flats/rooms are usually very nice, mostly with garden to use, and generally far from University (but exceptions can be found).
