The macbook is able to connect to the eduroam network (wireless network at university), also all the web applications are compatible. The iPrint application sometimes makes problems during the initial installation, however, it should be fine afterwards. In case of ongoing problems, the Helpdesk in room 22SB can help.

Where can I print, copy or scan documents at the university?

First of all you need to charge money to your ID/ISIC card. Then you can pay for printing operations at the VŠE campus (see the details below). You can also find some copy centers on the way to the tram station Husinecká, where you can print, scan or copy documents.

Lost and Found

In case you have lost any of yours personal belongings at VSE premises, go to “Lost and Found” in room NB19 with your ID card and some Czech speaker (i.e. your Buddy) to ask for it. In case you have found something, follow the same process as described above.

Tutoring help

If you have any specific problems or questions or you do not understand any topic of a particular course, do not hesitate to contact your lecturer in his/her Consultation Hours, which are available on university information system InSIS (Persons at VŠE). Teachers are there on that time to discuss with you your questions about course and help you with solving any misunderstanding. On the other hand, if you have some specific (personal) problems with studying or getting used to the new surroundings, you can contact the Academic Psychological Counselling. This service offers counselling for foreign students who come to study to the Czech Republic.

University ID card and ISIC card

1. University ID card

Exchange students for one semester will receive a university ID card (290 CZK).

ID card possibilities that enables:

  • Electronic wallet (paying for printing, copying and scanning)
  • Paying in canteen
  • Borrowing books in the library
  • Entering the library and some classes / study rooms


2. ISIC card

In order to receive ISIC card (370 CZK), you have to be a student at VSE for at least one year (therefore, ISIC card can be offered to full-year Exchange students). The function of the ISIC card at VSE premises is the same as the ID card. However, students can also use discounts in stores or restaurants outside VSE (more information about discounts with ISIC card at http://www.isic.cz/en/discounts/).
If the full-year student does not want to have the ISIC card, he can get just the ID card.

What to do if my student ID card was stolen/lost?

Try your luck at Lost and Found. Otherwise, you have to go to the SB22 where the new student ID card can be issued. You have to pay the same amount for the new card as at the beginning of the semester.
