    Student Services

    The faculty, as part of the university, provides a number of services to ensure quality education for students.

    The University Bookshop, located in Ústí nad Labem just at the corner of Vanickova and Brnenska Streets, provides educational literature. All texts written by academics to promote courses and subjects are distributed, to all students interested, only through the University Bookshop.

    Students can also benefit from accommodation and catering services provided by university management for dormitory and dining facilities. Student halls can be found in the town area called Klise, located a few hundreds of meters away from the seat of the faculty. Very near the halls, there are the university dining facilities—cafeteria. The university offers other accommodation and catering services, for students interested, in the seat of the Rectorate, Horeni Street. Candidates' requirements for accommodation services are usually met, which may be one of the important criteria in deciding on the location of higher education. Furthermore, the quality of services offered is of a good standard.

    Directly located at the faculty headquarters, students, staff and others interested have access to the services of the faculty library and study room. It is possible to use the library ARL system to browse the collection which is also available via the Internet. Required publications can be booked and subsequently picked up, or can be studied directly at the library – respectively, in the study room. PCs used for work associated with study, information searches, etc. can be also found there.

    After building a multifunctional center on campus grounds (estimated completion in 2012), another, more sophisticated service of the UJEP Central Library will be offered.

    The university local network ensures access to electronic information resources which bring together international subject databases providing bibliographic, factual and full-text information. At random, the following can be mentioned: ScienceDirect, SpringerLink, Web of Knowledge, Scopus, Knovel Library, Oxford Journals, and many others.

    The faculty desisted from operating its own wireless network and has replaced it with access points of a nationwide academic Eduroam network. Thus further simplifying connectivity especially for students using laptops with wireless connectivity options, which may use Eduroam with a single setting at most universities in the country.

    On the faculty premises students are offered the possibility to use the services of photocopying, printing and scanning. Large format printing and burning of data to CD or DVD are also available.

    Electronic and IT services are provided by the faculty ICT Center, in conjunction with the university ICT Center. This includes mainly the operation of servers and PCs in classrooms and study rooms, administration and maintenance of faculty websites, operation of e-learning MS Class Server system, a license and research server, or administration of electronic mail and mail server operating on MS Exchange platform. All faculty departments are connected by fiber optic cabling to CESNET2 with the rate of 1 Gbit/s.

    In addition to the above mentioned faculty and university services, it is possible to attend cultural, sporting and social events, enjoy the wide range of sports which Ústí nad Labem, as the seat of the region, offers or just wander about in the beautiful countryside of the Bohemian Central Highlands, which the city is nestled in.
