Cost of living

A student needs approximately CZK 8,000 – 10,000 (EUR 300 – 380; USD 350 – 430) per month to cover the basic costs, such as catering, accommodation, and transport. The amount always depends on individual needs, requirements, and the standard of living of each student.

The average price of a meal at the restaurant is around CZK 120 (EUR 4.55; USD 5.20); in the student canteen, the price is usually CZK 50 to 80 for a meal (EUR 1.90 – 3.00; USD 2.00 – 3.50). Food costs may be lower or higher, depending on your personal choice about where and what you will eat.
