Current measures of CU and FSV UK on the current situation/16. 3.

In connection with Resolution of the Government of the Czech Republic no. 215/2020 Coll., dated 15 March 2020, on the adoption of crisis measures prohibiting the free movement of people on the territory of the Czech Republic, Charles University’s rector announces the following:

Teaching and presence in the workplace

All pedagogical activities are allowed only by distance form. With effect from Monday 16 March 2020 from 16.00 (4 PM) to Tuesday 24 March 2020 inclusive (or until the revocation of the crisis measures stated above), any form of individual instruction, including individual consultations, individual examinations, and state examinations, is prohibited (including rigorous and doctoral examinations).

With effect from 0.00 (midnight) on 17 March 2020 all CU buildings shall be closed and access shall be granted only to employees and students under conditions set by the dean of the relevant faculty of director of the CU constituent part with respect to ensuring the performance of tasks essential to the operation of CU. In the case of the continuation of activities at individual workplaces, we ask all employees to respect the increased hygiene requirements and to behave responsibly both to those around them and to themselves.

FSV UK students are not allowed to enter our buildings until Tuesday 24 March 2020 until further notice. The ban does not apply to doctoral students who are also employed at FSV UK. The staff of FSV UK is available on e-mails and telephones - office hours of individual departments will be gradually published. The directors of individual institutes are responsible for trouble-free contactless consultations and teaching.

International students and employees

The instructions contained in Rector's memorandum of 13 March 2020 remain in force. The arrival of students from abroad, or international students, if they are permitted to enter the Czech Republic, shall be dealt with on an individual basis. International students should contact the representative offices of their own countries for a possible exemption from travel bans.

Student residences

Student residences shall continue to operate.

Once again, we call on all students in accommodation at residences to not gather, to comply with strict hygiene rules, and to behave in a responsible manner both to themselves and to others. We realize that the situation faced by students in residences will be complicated in the next few days, but we believe that calm, conscious behaviour shall help us to manage the situation together.

In the event that quarantine measures are adopted in rooms or parts of residences, those who are in quarantine must strictly comply with all measures introduced and all conditions of quarantine.


With effect from Tuesday, March 17, 2020, only the Kajetánka Refectory shall be in operation (they offer cooked food).

  • U Rotlevů

The Snídárna at the Komenského Student Residence shall remain in operation. Discussions on continuing the operation of refectories and dispensing points in Pilsen and Hradec Králové are ongoing. Operation in all buffets shall cease.

On Wednesday, March 18, 2020, the number of meals will be evaluated and further reductions can be made.
