Central Payment System

The student identity card is used for payments at the University of Ostrava as an “electronic wallet”. This method of payment is called the Central Payment System (or CUS) and it provides better payment monitoring and checking, and faster and more direct settlement.

The “electronic wallet” can be used at the following places:

  • University Bookshop
  • Card Centre
  • University Library
  • Study departments of the individual faculties

For such payments, the student deposits a sufficient financial amount via the payment gateway (online payment) or by non-cash transfer to the university account kept with the Czech National Bank in Ostrava.

Online payment by card (recommended)

There is a payment form on the Portal (Portal > Personal Information > CUS) where you can enter amount to pay. The minimum amount is CZK 100. You will be redirected to the payment gateway. It is only possible to pay by card which allows payments on the Internet. The transfer is encrypted and secured.

You can also find the current balance of your “electronic wallet” under this section. (Portal > My Homepage > Personal Information).
