With 17 faculties in three different cities, Charles University does not have one central campus. Instead, the faculties, dorms, and refectories are spread around the city (cities, in fact) and some faculties even have their own little campuses. Take a look at the map of just the main faculty buildings in Prague:

Individual visits

Given the spatial distribution of our university and large number of applicants, we are not able to give private tours. Instead, our Centre for Information, Counselling and Social Services (CU Point) offers on demand information and help to applicants and our current students (both in-person and online). It is always recommended to make an appointment in advance.

Since we are a public institution, prospective students are also welcome to visit and look around the faculty buildings – they are freely open to public. You may also contact the Admissions Office of the respective faculty that you are interested in and inquire about the possibility to meet with them directly or with the faculty's students (ambassadors). Moreover, all of our faculties hold their own Open Doors Days usually at some point during winter or spring.

Interested visitors may also enjoy the University Museum, our Botanical Garden and other sighseeing staples (see the left menu for more details or visit a dedicated webiste).

Please note that all offices and faculties are closed during the weekends.

Group visits

Depending on the current schedule, our team of international students' advisors from CU Point are able to offer either a virtual meeting or an in-person welcome tour to groups of interested students and prospective applicants (10–30 people) or high school counsellors and teachers.

Virtual meeting

The virtual meetings are conducted via Zoom during the standard office hours 09:00-17:30 (CET or GMT+1). In about one hour, we can discuss various details in regards to admissions, study options or student life at Charles University. Specific inquiries otherwise unavailable on this website are very much welcomed. For further information and appointments, please contact the international students' advisors (look for the "Information and Services for International Students").

Welcome tour

The welcome tour consists of the following elements:

As described above, the tour takes the entire day (10–17) but individual parts may be arranged separately (depending on your preferences, our staff availability, and tour capacities). The total cost for all the paid segments is approx. CZK 400 per person (≐ EUR 17). The introductory presentation can be customised to fit the needs of individual students and accompanying teachers or counsellors. Please note, that the guided tours of Carolinum and Klementinum require independent booking and are limited by their capacity. For further information and appointments, please contact the international student's advisors well in advance (look for the "Information and Services for International Students").
