Blog School Activities
Whether or not you have classes located in the Rajska building, or RB for short, the space is open for anyone to enjoy. Hosting a cafe, two canteens and more, it is close to the Italská building. RB has wooden benches and tables both on the ground and first floors, which makes it a perfect place to study, eat lunch or simply watch some Netflix between classes.
My favorite place in RB are the two study coves, available on both the ground and first floors. Located at the far right of each floor, they offer tables to study, vending machines to buy snacks, and a sink for washing up any containers you may bring food in. It’s the perfect place to eat breakfast after a morning class or to work on any homework you forgot to do the night before.
The newest addition to the Žižkov campus, the Rajska building is where many students either have class or study in between lectures. Holding two massive lecture halls, it also features lots of seating areas where people often work quietly.
If you’re new to VŠE, this is definitely one of the places you should get to know well. It is also connected to the Italská building, which holds the campus’ canteens, Academic Club, restaurants and more. The Rajska building is also where you’ll find the International Studies Center.
One of the best features of the Rajska building is Café Ekonom. Located in the center of the building, this Café offers up a selection of hot beverages as well as both sweet and savory food. Because they’re open all week from the morning till the evening, many students who need a quick and satisfying meal stop by between classes to order a sandwich.
My favorite thing to do here is to meet with classmates to work on projects or homework together. It’s also adds a nice variation to the many study places around campus.
The VŠE Library
One of the greatest places on campus, the library is located in the old building. There, you’ll be able to do everything you need for your classes: printing, scanning, checking out textbooks and more. There’s plenty of seating, which tends to fill up as the day goes on. As a tip, make sure to get there early during exam season to secure a spot!
My favorite features of the library are the study rooms and their extra resources. The study rooms are great for completing group projects with classmates, while the extra resources include full text publications from organizations such as the OECD, as well as articles from The Economist and more. It’s a great place to study in between classes or when you simply get tired of working in the many cafes Prague has to offer.
