The student identification card plays an important role within the university. The card is realized in the form of a chip personalized identification card. Therefore it serves to prove identity but also to identify the student (using a chip on the card) for access to services available within the university:
- catering - Kredit system (Canteen)
- Central Library - Lending of scripts, literature, and magazines
- reprographic services (paid copying, printing)
- computer classes
- parking in the area
Every VŠB-TUO student is obliged to be a holder of a Student Identification Card. Students have the right to choose from two types of cards. In the case of the full-time form of study, either ISIC or Standard. For combined study, it is possible to issue an ALIVE student or Standard card. Furthermore, the student must decide whether he wants to have a card integrated with the ODIS transport card (see Price list of services) or not.
