Current information from the Bursar regarding the accommodations in the AMU Dormitory at Hradební 7, Prague 1, dated 7 June 2021

Dear Students and Dormitory Users,

Further to multiple questions regarding the mode of operation at the AMU Dormitory (in particular the payments for accommodation) during the state of emergency under the 2nd wave of the coronavirus pandemic, and with regard to the Current Measure of the Ministry of Education for Tertiary Schools in Connection with COVID-19, I hereby advise you that even under the pandemic law, all the provisions of your accommodation agreements in force until 30 June 2021 remain effective to the maximum extent. The AMU dormitory remains in operation with the restrictions arising from the cited Measure of the MoE.

Amount of the accommodation charge for May 2021 and related information:

1) For students who have been demonstrably accommodated at AMU Dormitory in the same manner as they were prior to 30 April 2021, the amount of the accommodation charge is not changing and they shall pay the charge in the same amount, i.e., at 100% of the price under the accommodation agreement in force. In order to minimise personal contact between students and receptionists, it is recommended to pay the accommodation using a credit transfer to AMU’s bank account;

2) For other students who demonstrably did not use AMU Dormitory despite their accommodation agreements in force, or used it only partially with regard to the government measures, AMU has decided to reduce the accommodation charge by 90% of the price under the accommodation agreement in force. In effect, the amount of the accommodation charge is 10% of the price and this amount applies to the period from 30 April 2021 to 24 May 2021. If a student moves in to the AMU Dormitory again during May 2021, the above discount will be granted with effect till the date of moving in;

3) The students, who used accommodation in the AMU dormitory only for a limited number of days for the purpose of taking an exam or an individual consultation in accordance with the exception regarding the provision of accommodation to tertiary school students, shall pay the accommodation charge only for the respective number of days under the applicable accommodation agreement.

4) in case of re-moving to the AMU dormitory during the May 2021, the above-mentioned discount will be provided until the date of this moving,

5) from 24 May 2021 to 30 June 2021 (until the validity of the accommodation contract), iall students pay the dormitory in full according to the valid accommodation contract,

6) Please be aware that any visits to AMU Dormitory are forbidden until further notice.

Also, please be advised that, under the provisions of the accommodation agreement, AMU has the right, in justified cases during the term of the agreement, to unilaterally change the user’s room by means of a written notice sent to the user sufficiently in advance and to assign a different room to the user for temporary accommodation for a necessary period.

I am confident that this measure will not have to be applied; however, AMU may apply this provision in the event that a person accommodated in AMU Dormitory is demonstrably COVID-19 positive; a notice sent 24 hours prior to changing the room is deemed to be served sufficiently in advance. If this happens, please give us the maximum assistance possible.

At the same time, I request all students who are currently accommodated in AMU Dormitory to strictly adhere to all measures declared by the government with a view to preventing further spread of the coronavirus, as well as to all provisions of the accommodation agreement.

I thank you for your cooperation and believe that we will manage this difficult period in good health.

Prague, 7 June 2021
