Most IB students who apply for accommodation live in the university dormitory, located in Prague – Jarov I. (It takes you 15 – 20 minutes by tram to get to the university campus.).

9. What will I need for living in the dormitory?
All that you will need for living in the dormitory (like sheets and desk lamp) will be provided to you by the dormitories. However, there are no dishes available in the dormitory kitchenettes. But even here the best strategy is to bring nothing and buy the potentially missing equipment cheaply in Prague.
