Living in ISA housing will give you the opportunity to experience aspects of the Czech lifestyle that are inaccessible to the average visitor to Prague. Uncovering the uniqueness of your neighborhood and the surrounding areas will help you to feel right at home. Housing is located either within walking distance from campus, or near public transportation (metro, bus, tram) that can take you to class. With an open and adaptable mind, the experience of living in another culture can be highly rewarding.
We strive to match your housing requests with our available accommodations, however, housing requests cannot be guaranteed.
Apartments are assigned on a first-come/first-served basis, and availability is limited. Placement into apartments cannot be guaranteed.
Residents are placed in furnished, centrally located apartments. All apartments are either within walking distance or are located near public transit routes relative to the university. Larger metropolitan cities will have a longer commute. While apartments are standardized in terms of basic amenities, they can vary greatly in terms of both aesthetics and proximity to the university.
Bedrooms are typically double occupancy with a shared living area, kitchen and bathroom, although occasionally apartments have a single room(s). Residents will determine who will sleep in which room. Single rooms cannot be guaranteed in advance. Each apartment is equipped with basic furnishings and supplies, including one single bed per occupant, a closet/clothing storage space, basic cookware and kitchenware, a table and chairs, and furnished sitting area. Desks, when available, are to be shared by all residents. Each resident is expected to provide their own paper and cleaning products as well as replace light bulbs. Each resident will receive their own key.
Academic Year students should be aware that apartment housing is assigned each term according to availability and demand, and it is therefore possible that their apartment location may change from semester to semester. Rent is included in the program price beginning on the program's arrival date on site until the morning of the program's official end date.
You will pay a $500 refundable security deposit if living in this ISA housing option. ISA may retain some, or all, of this deposit in the event of damage to property, or if utility usage exceeds the allotted monthly amount
You may elect to secure housing independently. If you select this option, you will receive a discount equal to the housing portion of the program price.
