Accommodation before submitting the negative RT-PCR test
Due to the complex situation, temporary accommodation will be available at the Academy Hall in třída Generála Píky. This accommodation will be provided to students and employees who have concluded an Accommodation Agreement with the Accommodation and Catering Services for the semester concerned for the period before they obtain the negative test result; if the test taken in the CR is positive, the accommodation will be provided until the Regional Public Health Department ends the isolation.
If you need temporary accommodation until the test result is known, please fill in the form at:
(The number of beds is limited; if the hall is booked up for the day concerned, you should find private accommodation or change the date of arrival and make a booking for another day).
