Student ID Cards

Student ID Cards

Charles University student ID cards serve as evidence of the holder's relation to CU and to one of its faculties. These chip cards contain personal data, a barcode, a photograph and a signature strip. The cards are used for access to the FSV UK Hollar building and to some FSV UK computer labs and libraries. Students also use their cards to pay for printing and copying as well as in the university cafeterias.

In order to be able to use the card for printing and copying and also in the cafeterias, you have to put credit on your student card. Please note, the card basically operates with two different accounts and thus you need to put in credit separately for printing and for use in cafeterias.

When you enrol at Charles University, you choose between two types of student identity cards:

  • regular CU Student Card
  • CU ISIC Student Card: this is the only internationally recognized student identity card. Its holder gains access to a wide range of benefits and discounts. As a CU student, you have the attractive option of getting a CU Student Card that is merged with the ISIC card, thus enabling you to use all standard CU services and also benefits from ISIC-related discounts.

The CU Student Card itself is issued free of charge; the standard annual ISIC fee for CU students is 190 CZK (approximately 7 EUR). The ISIC function of the card expires after 16 months at the latest. Standard validity is from the beginning of September until the end of December of the following year.
