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 little campuses. Take a look at the map of just the main faculty buildings in Prague:
Given the spatial distribution of our university and the large number of applicants, we are not able to give private tours. Instead, CU Point offers information and guidance to both applicants and current students alike (in-person or online). It is always recommended to make an appointment in advance or join the virtual office hours.
Since we are a public institution, prospective students are welcome to visit and look around our faculty buildings – they are freely open to the public. You may also contact the faculty's Admissions Office and inquire about the possibility of meeting with the faculty representatives or student ambassadors directly. Moreover, all of our faculties hold Open Doors Days.
Interested visitors may also enjoy our University Museum, Botanical Garden and other sightseeing staples (see the left menu for more details or visit a dedicated websiste). Note that the Faculty of Science provides a number of visiting opportunities in their faculty's overview, which includes the Geopark, Hrdlička Museum of Anthropology, Chlupáč Museum of Earth History, Mineralogy Museum or Herbarium.
Please note that all our offices and faculties are closed during the weekends.
The Welcome Tour - tailored to the needs of guidance counsellors and high school teachers, is the perfect opportunity for your students to discover Charles University.
Our team of international student advisors can help you arrange a visit fitting your group's particular needs, including visits to our faculties and much more. Groups of interested students and prospective applicants (10–30 people) are also welcome to join.
The Welcome tour consists of the following elements from which you can choose from:
presentation of CU and its study opportunities (about 30 mins long)
visit to the chosen faculty (or faculties)
guided tour of Carolinum (main seat of CU) – BOOK SEPARATELY (PAID)
visit to the University Museum (The History of CU exhibition)
a short walk through the city centre (Old Town)
lunch at the refectory (Faculty of Law) – PAID
guided tour of Klementinum (National Library) – BOOK SEPARATELY (PAID)

The tour takes an 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 (via the links above) and are limited by their capacity.
