E-bikes and e-scooters banned in MU buildings
Electric bikes and scooters are banned in Masaryk University buildings, including dormitories. Accommodation and Catering Services (ACS) has recently brought this rule to the attention of the students living in dormitories due to the fire hazards associated with these modes of transport. A state authority recently carried out a regular health, safety and fire risk audit which found the presence of these risks and violations of the related safety regulations.
“It is not our goal to harass students living in the dormitories and we are aware of the complications caused to some of them. That said, the safety of the residents in these dormitories is our top priority. To this end we must reduce all risks possible. And as a provider of accommodation services we are bound by the general legal regulations in the area of safety,” ACS director Kamil Kulíšek commented on the ban.
Dormitories: increased comfort and new equipment after renovations

Broken appliances? Report them online
Whether you are first-year students or you are coming back to your dormitories after the summer break you must check in within five days of the commencement of your reservation. Should you fail to show up without a written excuse, your contract of accommodation will be invalidated and you will lose your deposit.
Dormitory councils: much needed assistance and own ideas brought to life
Preferential treatment in applying for dormitories or advance information on the operation of the dormitories and canteens; those are just two of the benefits of membership in dormitory councils. The Accommodation and Catering Services (ACS) will announce new elections within days of the start of the new academic year.
