Please note that these government restrictions do apply on Czech students only. These restrictions do not apply on foreign students living in Charles Universtity dormitories.

The CU crisis team hereby appeals to students accommodated at CU dor-mitories:

Following the adoption of Czech Government Resolution no. 1022 of 12 October 2020, we request that students accommodated at CU dormitories give responsible consideration to their continued stay at their dormitory. However, any students who are unable to leave their dormitory for good reason (risk of the spread of infection amongst high-risk groups on return to one’s place of abode) shall be allowed to remain at their dormitory in accordance with the declaration of the Czech Ministry of Education.

All students can decide whether or not they wish to leave their accommodation at CU dormitories. Any students who decide to remain at their dormitory due to pre-vention of the risk of spreading infection must deliver (by e-mail to koleje.bounce@kam.cuni.cz) a statutory declaration, listing the reasons for which the student believes return to their place of abode to be high-risk, to CU Dormitories and Canteens no later than at 18.00 (6 p.m.) on 14 October 2020.

The accommodation contracts of any students who decide to terminate their ac-commodation, and notify CU Dormitories and Canteens of this no later than at 18.00 (6 p.m.) on 14 October 2020 (by e-mail to koleje.bounce@kam.cuni.cz), shall be cancelled as of 15 October 2020 without any sanction whatsoever. Depar-ture (moving out) from dormitories shall be possible until 16 October 2020 inclusive.

The University is offering students who are able to move back to their place of abode, but wish to stay in Prague for reasons other than the risk of spreading infec-tion (work etc.) the option of accommodation in the Krystal hotel facility, where en-hanced hygienic and epidemiological measures are in place, for a reduced price of 5,000.- CZK per bed per month. Accommodation is possible from 15 October 2020. Please send any applications for this accommodation to krystal@centrum-krystal.cz . At the same time, Charles University is seeking possibilities for the further increase of hotel-type accommodation capacity in cooperation with the City of Prague.

The above rules do not apply to students who, under Government Resolution no. 1022 of 12 October 2020, have been granted an exemption from the prohibition on accommodation at dormitories, i.e. students who have no other place of abode in the Czech Republic, students who are under an obligation to work under Act no. 240/2000 Coll., on crisis measures, and students on degree programmes in general medicine, dentistry, pharmacy and other degree programmes related to healthcare, as well as students who are performing practical traineeships at nursery, primary and secondary schools.
