CU Point – Services and information in one place


May 2022




Dear International Students,

This month, we invite you to participate in a competition (and maybe win a CU-themed prize)! To take part, we ask you to take a photo of your favourite place at the university/faculty. We look forward to learning about your most-liked spots at CU! :-)

Are you feeling like trying out some new sports and enjoying lots of fun at the same time? We encourage you to sign up for the CU Rector's Sports Day! You can choose from various activities such as volleyball, basketball, floorball, orienteering, cycling, golf, paddle boarding, yoga, dance class, and many others! All the courses on this day are cancelled, so you do not have to worry about missing classes.

We wish you good luck with your exams and a happy spring with lots of sunlight, and we look forward to seeing you at our events!

Charles University on Screen and in Movies

Did you know that CU buildings have occurred in many Czech as well as international movies? Ranging from the gothic Karolinum to the minimalism of the newly built Faculty of Humanities, the filmmakers have quite a variety of spaces to choose from.
