CU Point



Dear International Students,

This issue of our newsletter might seem a bit different from the newsletters you usually receive from us. Instead of invitations to our events we are going to provide you with some current information on studies and life at Charles University as well as with useful links focusing on information on Covid-19 in English. All up-to-date information is regularly published on the university website. And let´s have some free-time tips too!

In case of any questions, you may contact us by phone (+420 224 491 850) or email ( – we are here to help you! We understand that this is an uncomfortable and uncertain period for you. However, do not forget to stay positive and to enjoy the Easter time. We believe that we will soon be able to welcome you back at our social, sport and other events.

We are here for you.

On behalf of the CU Point team,

Lída Součková
