Student Life

Even though you will be spending a lot time studying at this school, you will still have plenty of time to look around you and take in what you can! An architect must understand life, so take every opportunity to observe what is going on around you, with your own eyes. You can’t live in a virtual world. It’s better to search out real life experiences. And there is no shortage of those here!

01

PRAGUE

THE BEST ARCHITECTURAL TEXTBOOK THERE IS

You only need to take the elevator to the eighth floor of our school building and look out over the city – from the Prague Castle to Černínský Palace to the functionalist villas of the Baba neighbourhood, you’ll find every historical period and building style. When you then go and see, for example, Zítka’s National Theatre building or the Rudolfinum up close, don’t forget to buy a ticket to a show, a concert or go right inside and take in an exhibition. And then, of course, there are countless other theatres, galleries, cinemas, coffee houses, football stadiums, parks, pubs…

DEJVICE CAMPUS

EPICENTER OF STUDENT LIFE

The Dejvice campus, which houses the faculties of CTU, the University of Chemistry and Technology, Institute of Organic Chemistry and Biochemistry AS CR, the National Technical Library and the Catholic Theological Faculty of Charles University, is part of the surrounding neighbourhood, but it remains tranquil. You will surely appreciate the ease of commuting – it just 5 minutes by tram or metro to the city centre, and you can walk to the Prague Castle or Stromovka park in 15 minutes. It is also the venue for many interesting events, which are usually free to students – concerts, evening film screenings, exhibitions, sport matches and so on: You can learn more on Facebook or on the CTU website.

03

PROFESSIONAL LIBRARIES

THE LARGEST COLLECTIONS OF TECHNICAL LITERATURE

Across from the Faculty is the National Technical Library, where you will find all the essential publications; access to foreign literature is made possible by the inter-library loan service. Another source is the CUT library – and right at the Faculty of Architecture we operate our own well-stocked libraries. These offer only on-site loans, meaning you cannot take materials home. Of course, we recommend visiting the National Library of the Czech Republic at Clementinum or the libraries of certain specialized institutions, such as at the Museum of Decorative Arts, the National Museum, etc.

04

SPORTS AT CTU

FROM BODY STYLING THROUGH VOLLEYBALL TO TENNIS

Sports are not a part of the mandatory subjects at the FA – on the contrary, you can choose what you want to do for your body and when. The Institute of Physical Education and Sport at CTU (also on Facebook) offers a number of courses (free or for a small fee), mainly held at the Juliska sports facility, but in other locations as well. You can become a reserve player for one of the teams (volleyball, floorball and others) representing the FA at various competitions, take a skiing course in the mountains, go swimming daily – or try something entirely new. What about archery?

05

CULTURE

SOMETHING IS HAPPENING EVERYWHERE AND THERE’S SOMETHING FOR EVERYONE

That Prague is a city with culture on virtually every corner is something you already know, but still, you may be surprised when you hear someone playing Chopin on the piano in the faculty hall… Just around the corner you’ll find the Dejvicka Theatre, currently the most popular playhouse around, while the nearby dorms at Strahov are home to the famous Club 007, or ‘The Seven’ as it’s colloquially called, featuring the best alternative music anywhere. The FA building itself houses the Zlatý řez publishing company, and the CTU Academic Orchestra performs regular concerts in the Bethlehem Chapel, exhibitions are held both at the faculty and across the way at the National Technical Library – the possibilities are many, it’s up to you to decide!
