The NYU Center is situated at Malé Náměstí in a 15th-century building only steps away from the Old Town square and Prague's historic clock tower. The building has been restored to its original detail with painted wooden beams and arched entryways, an ideal place for study and reflection. We have also recently expanded to another building nearby, to accomodate the size of our ever-growing program!
Students at the NYU Center are invited to use the English-language library, the computer room where the Internet is readily available, and classrooms. A darkroom in the building is available to our students studying photography in Prague. The director and the staff are available to students for informal talks, academic advising, and recommendations about life in Prague. Here, in the heart of the city, students are close to Charles University, to Wenceslas Square — the site of Prague's Velvet Revolution, to the Jewish Quarter with its famed 15th-century cemetery, and to the Charles Bridge.
Restaurants, cafés and galleries are close by, so a pleasant stroll, a cup of coffee, or a peek into an art gallery are some ways students can spend time between classes.
