All residences are in a close proximity of UNYP (5-15 minutes via public transportation or within walking distance).

Housing is in furnished double rooms and may share a bathroom with another double room. Each room has bed, linens, pillow, desk, chair, and bureau. Towels are NOT provided. Students have access to a shared kitchen in a common area and laundry facilities. Residences all have free Wi-Fi.


For meals and personal expenses in Prague, generally speaking, students can expect to spend a minimum average of between $500 - $1,000 per month – depending on how often they eat out or travel.  There is no meal plan.  Within 5-10 minute’s walking distance from UNYP and the residence there are dozens of restaurants, cafés, specialty shops, bakeries, butcheries, and food stores.  There are even two restaurants – one a high end burger restaurant and the other a steak restaurant – in the UNYP residences.  There is no shortage of food options within a 5-minute walking distance radius of UNYP.



Activities

UNYP offers a variety of weekday evening activities each term, including scavenger hunts, sunset walks, visits to key parks, etc. that bring students together in informal social contexts.
