Cost of living

Masaryk university offers 9 buildings around the city where students can find accommodation in shared, but also private rooms. The prices vary from 120 EUR/month (5-bed apartment) to 310 EUR/month (single room). The demand among students for accommodation always exceeds its capacity, though. Reservation of dormitory opens in July.

  • Private accommodation

Accommodation in private apartment can be costly, however looking for private room in shared apartment can be sometimes cheaper than staying in the dormitory. Facebook groups and certain websites are the most popular sources to look at. Useful tips where to look for private accommodation are provided in International Students Guide.

Beginning studies abroad can be very challenging. How does the university work? How to find accommodation? How to get around the city? How to find help if you have special needs? How to get medical aid? How to open a bank account? How to find a job? Where to go shopping? Find answers to all your questions in our International Student Guide
