Identification cards



Identification cards (ISIC and UP card) for first year students will be issued in the former Armoury building (Biskupské náměstí 1), 2nd floor, ID Card Office (door no. 3.87) during office hours.

Each student can find for himself/herself whether his/her card has been already printed or not in order not to waste his/her time waiting to get a card. This information can be found at Portal UP ( in Contacts section – Upol Hledání student (student search) – enter your name and surname – if there is a specified date of Date of card issuing then your card was already printed.

There can be a few reasons why your card has not been printed yet. Either, the ID card application form with a photography attached is not present at the ID card office, the card deposit has not been paid properly or a wrong variable symbol was used etc. In this case, please, contact Identification Card office (through Helpdesk or in person). In such case, contact the ID card office electronically or in person, give us the variable symbol used to pay the card and the date of payment. If a wrong variable symbol was used, our department will give a request for change of variable symbol at the accounting office, then your card will be printed.


Price for revalidation stamp is 250 CZK from this academic year.

It will be valid from 09/2016 to 12/2017. Students interested in prolonging of their international ISIC card validity can pay for the validation using the payment gateway in Portal. Log in to Portal, go to “My studies” section and then go to “Student fees and claims” option and press the “Pay online” button. This way you will pay the fee using your bank card (therefore you do not have to bring a payment receipt using this payment method). Furthermore, you can pay the fee via bank transfer or postal order. However, if you use one of these methods, when collecting the stamp, you must bring a payment receipt with a correct variable symbol (in case the payment was not matched with your ID and payment status is: Unpaid).

Revalidation stamps for the new academic year will be issued during first three weeks in October, i.e. from 3. 10. 2016 to 21. 10. 2016 during working days at reception at the former Armoury Building.
