What discounts will I get on food and accommodation?
If you are a full-time student, you are entitled to the so-called student price for meals at Masaryk University canteens, which is significantly lower than the standard price. You pay from your student account, which you can access quickly via your ISIC card. You can charge the credit either at the canteen or at selected SUPO machines.
Meals can be ordered in advance online through the Kredit catering account.
Masaryk University students may apply for a grant in support of accommodation. There are several conditions for obtaining it:
- first of all, you must be a full-time student in your first year of study,
- you must not have exceeded the standard period of study,
- you must have a permanent residence outside Brno.
The accommodation grant will help you to pay approximately one or two months’ rent a year. Further details and an application to check if you are eligible for a scholarship can be found in the MU Information System.
Halls of Residence or private housing
University halls of residence provide students with accommodation throughout their studies. The MU Accommodation and Catering Services are tasked with the administration of a total of 10 accommodation facilities, which provide facilities such as gyms and other sports facilities, computer rooms, TV and common rooms, table tennis halls and services such as internet access. Detailed information about individual dormitory locations is available on the Accommodation and Catering Services website.
In case your selected location is unavailable or in case you prefer private housing, you may find the MU Housing portal quite useful. Housing offers and requests are also available through the IS MU Noticeboard.
Social media including Facebook groups such as "Ubytování v Brně" and "Bydlení v Brně" – each with thousands of members and accommodation offers – provide yet another source of information.
