  • API students in Prague will live in university residence halls.

    API students at Charles University who opt for the residence hall option will usually stay in the Komenského kolej (dormitory) near the Prague Castle, a 10-minute walk to the castle, a 30-minute walk to the main university building, and a twenty-minute tram ride to the historic Old Town. The dormitory offers conveniences that any student would need to live and study abroad. The residence hall includes in-room kitchenettes (with larger, shared kitchens available), as well as a laundry room, community room, study room, small gym (fee required), wi-fi, housekeeping (on a limited basis), gated entry with student ID access, and breakfast served Monday-Friday (excluding holidays).
