NC State is located on a small square called the Small Square (Malé Náměstí), right around the corner from Old Town Square. It is housed within a 15th-16th century building known as “Ericsson Palace.” Although this may sound quaint, the center is equipped with all the modern facilities necessary for studying and learning.
Free WiFi is available throughout the premises and students are encouraged to bring their own laptops. The building is accessible to students from 8:00am-10:00pm (administrative staff office hours vary). Storage lockers are available for enrolled students.
Located in an area heavily populated with tourists, the interior offers a quiet and beautiful setting for studying in Prague. The “Great Hall” accommodates up to 50 people on the ground floor and is used for multi-purpose functions including orientation, special events, exhibitions, and workshops or symposium. The ground floor includes spaces for socializing, holding movie nights, and a beautiful courtyard for relaxation.
A studio space for up to 36 students attending up to three different studios is provided to each student in a relevant program. The set up is complete with large work tables, ample lighting, good chairs, pin-up boards and everything you might need.
All classrooms are equipped with a computer and a screen. Classrooms accommodate approximately 15-20 students each.
The lab contains a combination of iMacs and PC’s, large format printers, and a high-quality scanner.
The central kitchen is perfect for fixing a quick bite to eat, or inviting fellow students to join for dinner. It is equipped with refrigerators, stoves, sink, and ample cabinet space for dry goods. Cooking utensils, dishes, and tableware are provided and maintained by the students. We believe that a productive atmosphere must include space to take a break, relax, and refuel, so a large part of the kitchen is also a common room with seating for dining and lounging.
The library can be found on the second floor, where classrooms and studios are also located. It contains books and movies about Czech and European culture, history, arts, and more. Students can borrow materials at no cost, or use the space to study and recharge.
