Will I get my deposit I paid at the beginning back?
The accommodation deposit you paid before your arrival will be used to cover the rent for the last month of your stay here. Please check the SUPO; in the table overview of balances there is a new line “Amount to pay”. That is where you can see how much you should pay in the last months including outstanding fees (internet and electronic appliances.)
- If you signed your accommodation contract up to the end of December, the deposit will be used for December’s rent.
- If you signed your accommodation contract until January (1 – 20 January at the latest), the deposit will be used for December’s rent and you will pay only the January days.
- If you signed your accommodation contract until January (21 – 31), you will pay December’s rent and the deposit will be used to cover January, which practically means that you will either pay nothing in January, or just fees (internet and electronic appliances).
What should I do if I want to shorten/lengthen/terminate my accommodation contract?
If you want to extend your stay in halls of residence, no problem. Just go to see the accommodation assistant in advance. If you want to shorten your stay in the halls of residence, you have to announce it 1 month before you plan to leave. If you terminate your contract earlier, you will have to pay the rent for the month when the termination is delivered, plus 1 month more (for the last month your deposit will be used).
What should I do with kitchen utensils in the room?
Ask the reception about the collection of kitchen utensils in your dormitory (do not forget to wash everything before giving it away). At the beginning of each semester, a Second Hand Shop is organised where students can buy kitchen utensils for a small fee, the profit of which goes to charity.
I opened a Czech bank account after my arrival, should I close it before leaving?
If you do not plan to come back to the Czech Republic we would recommend you close the account. Withdraw all the money you have on the account (except for 30 crowns which will cover the fees for the last transactions). Go to the bank (take your payment card with you) and ask to close the account. The payment card will be deactivated. After 30 days from deactivation, the account will be closed.
