    Furthermore, you must include a proof of payment into the envelope:

    If you paid by postal order attach an original payment slip. Please, make a copy for yourself in case the payment would have to be found manually.
  3. Payment in cash at the main cash office
    Students, who haven’t send their application form using Online Application Form or for some reason have not paid the deposit by any of the aforementioned ways, must pay the deposit at the main cash office (Rectorate building, Křížkovského 8) before he/she comes to pick up his/her card. You must bring the cashier receipt to Computer Center’s ID card office (Zbrojnice building, Biskupské náměstí 1, room 3.87) or to a temporary worker during mass dispensing of cards, which is meant for incoming students one week before beginning of the academic year and two weeks after the beginning of the academic year in the Zbrojnice building.

Card distribution to the first year students

Time and place of the distribution is usually published in September in Portal of Palacký University.

First year students will pick their card up approximately 10 days after registration to the winter semester at the university, at earliest in September one week before the beginning of the academic year, or during the first few weeks of the winter semester. Further card distribution takes place in the stairway area on the third floor of the Zbrojnice building – this avoids the prolonged waiting period when signing the Contract to borrow an identification card.

First year students will receive their cards after they pay the deposit for the card.

PLACES TO CREATE AN ACCOUNT – insert credits into the card for canteen and Xerox

New students must go to main cash office in Canteen (cashier office at tř. 17. listopadu 54) to create an account there. You can pay in cash at the main canteen, Holice canteen or Neředín buffet to get credits for the meals. You will pay for your meals using the credits.
