Reservation of Beds for the Academic Year 2018/19

9th July 2018

Reservation of beds for the academic year 2018/19 will be launched according to the timetable on July 10th 2018 at 9 A.M. for foreign students, from August 1st for Czech and Slovak students.

Since there are large numbers of students to be expected within the first hours of reservations, there is a risk of system overload. For this reason, each student will receive information about the specific time since when it will be possible to log into the ISKAM application and make a reservation. Make sure you sign into the system as soon as possible after this time and reserve a bed, the time slot that you receive does not guarantee you a place in the queue.

As soon as the first wave of reservations is over, the system will be returned to normal and reservations will be dealt with continuously. The reservation can not be edited on the first booking day.

Veveří canteen is closed as of May 28th until further notice

28th May 2018

As part of the planned reconstruction of the MU Faculty of Law lecture halls, it was found that part of the building had structural degradation. As of May 29th, this part of the building will be closed. The cause of this structural degradation are aluminous cements which were used for the horizontal supporting structures on two floors of the building in the 1930s. The material was used until the 1950s, when it was found to have insufficient durability.

"We had to close off part of the building with four lecture halls and the canteen for security reasons. There is no imminent danger, but we do not want to risk the health of our students and employees," said Marta Valešová, the bursar.

The lecture halls, the reconstruction of which is scheduled for next summer, will be closed in the following year and the faculty will provide other premises for the lectures. Whether the canteen will have to be closed during the whole period will depend on how the reconstruction work will progress. "We will strive to solve the situation as efficiently and safely as possible," the bursar added.

The university will also have the rest of the building checked. "It is the first time that we have encountered the use of this material during the reconstruction of the historical buildings of Masaryk University," said Jan Brychta, Head of the Investment Department of the MU Rectorate.

Program for Improving the Quality of Accommodation

6th April 2018

Dear students and applicants for accommodation at MU halls of residence,

I would like to inform you that we are currently preparing for the implementation of the program for improving the quality of accommodation at MU halls of residence.

The program involves providing wireless network at all the MU halls of residence. Another part of the program is the sale of the smallest and, during spring the least occupied, halls of residence in Lomená, Komárov. We are also preparing for a complete modernization of the A2 building in Vinařská and an extension of the university's capacity for the accommodation of students and employees in the desired location of the university campus in Bohunice. In Komárov, students of MU will be able to stay at Bří Žůrků and Sladkého halls. The funds obtained from the sale of Lomená will be invested in the aforementioned program and in improving the quality of accommodation at other MU halls. For the above-mentioned reasons, it will not be possible to book the Lomená halls for the new academic year 2018/2019. The implementation of the program will not reduce the number of beds offred to MU students.

Thank you.

Zdeněk Čížek, MU Accommodation and Catering Services Director
