If you decide to do it on your own, you need to get to Technologický park tram station from there just ffollow the road to the buildings on your left and here we go - your future home! And how to get to Technologický park tram station?

You will show up in one of these places:

If you will come by train to the main train station, use tram number 12 from “Hlavní nádraží” (tram stop directly in front of the train station), direction “Technologický park”. Go all the way to the last stop.

2. Brno-Tuřany Airport 

At the airport get on a bus number 76 (or N89 during the night) all the way to “Hlavní nádraží” (main train station). There locate the tram number 12, direction “Technologický park”. Go all the way to the last stop.

Or take a TAXI - it should be around 500CZK. We don’t negotiate about the price but you can ask in advance how much it will cost. 

3. Grand hotel - BUS station

If you arrive to the bus station near to "Grand Hotel", walk towards the “Hlavní nádraží”, it’s only 500 meters away. There you can catch the tram number 12, direction “Technologický park”. Go all the way to the last stop.

The public transport

Brno is very well covered by a network of trams and buses, which is especially helpful during the night. The basic ticket costs 25 CZK for 60 minutes, which should cover most of your travels in the city. However, it’s better to buy a pre-paid card for your daily trips. The schedule can be found on this website: link


After arrival

You’ll be given a key to your room and bed sheet at the reception of the dorms. Drop off your luggage, have a shower, chill. When you feel like going back to action, stop by in our office (link will be added). We’ll tell you that you look great, give you a welcome pack (full of gifts), brew you a coffee or tea.

Accommodation Office

One of the first things which you should do immediately after your arrival is to visit the Accommodation office (it's located at PPV dorms, block A06, 2nd floor, room 028, entrance through reception in block A03). At the office, you have to sign the contract and pay the deposit and first rent. One important note: your internet connection works only after you sign the contract (you will get the login information and password), so we recommend you to do that as soon as possible. Unfortunately for you, the office it's not open during the weekend, so in that case plan the visit on the first working day: opening hours and more info (link will be added).

The foreign police

Are you an incoming student from any of the EU countries (or from Norway, Lichtenstein, Iceland, Switzerland) and do you stay in a dormitory owned by the university? If yes, you don’t need to worry. The residence will take care of your registration. In other cases see our page about foreign police (link will be added).
