CERGE-EI students may apply for accommodation in the Charles University dormitories, which are generally located in the suburbs (about 30 minutes from CERGE-EI by public transport). Cost is approximately CZK 4,000 per month for a bed in a double room.

Dormitory places are booked by CERGE-EI for first-year students who indicate their interest on the application form. Second, third, and fourth-year students apply for dormitory places individually through the Charles University booking system each year. Most PhD students live in Hostivař dormitory.

At the moment, there is only one dormitory within the Charles University that offers single rooms. This dormitory is usually at its full capacity, however. Students of higher cohorts (2nd year onwards) can apply for a single room, but it cannot be guaranteed.

Prices for private accommodation in Prague vary greatly depending on quality and location. Most advanced CERGE-EI students, however, have been able to find convenient flats within their budgets. First-year students are advised to opt for the dormitory, as CERGE-EI cannot assist students with renting private apartments.
