Housing & Meals
Kolej Komenského Residence Hall
Emerson students will be housed at The Kolej Komenského Residence Hall. The residence hall houses American students studying abroad, and some international and medical students of Prague’s Charles University. This residence hall is one of several owned by Charles University and is composed of single and double rooms with ensuite bathrooms. Emerson students will be housed in double rooms.
By most standards the rooms are very small. The Kolej supplies some linens, including a towel, comforter, sheet, and pillowcase. The mattresses are very hard and you may want to consider alternative bedding or some sort of padding to feel more comfortable. You can pack a mattress pad or perhaps buy one on arrival. Students may also want to buy a pillow on arrival or pack one.
Each room has a small kitchen area with a sink, small fridge, and double hot plate. Students will have to pack plastic utensils and cups, or buy some from a local convenience store.

A buffet-style breakfast is served daily in the residence hall breakfast room and is the only daily meal included in the program cost. Breakfast consists of coffee, bread, fruit, hard-boiled eggs, pastries, cheese, yogurt, and deli meat. It is a typical Czech/Slavic style breakfast and may not be what American students are accustomed to.
There will be welcome and farewell dinner parties for students. Each student should plan to buy lunch and dinner each day, although if students wish to cook dinner in the residence hall, there is a small double hot plate, sink, and mini-fridge in each double room. There is a convenience shop nearby where students can buy some food items. Last semester, students spent an average of $300 on meals during their time in Prague.
