The identification card replaces the dormitory card used so far. The card is used to identify person by employees of the Accommodation Services, to enter the VŠB-TUO dormitory buildings and to obtain certain services, such as the rental of washing machines, vacuum cleaners, for the change of bed linen in the Rental of beddings or for the use of self-service laundry.

A student of VŠB - Technical University of Ostrava will receive a Student Card at the Card Center after enrollment. This card is part of a unified identification system for students and employees within the University. It is used for ordering and dispensing food, using the car park on the university campus, using the services of the Central Library, access to computer classrooms and sports halls, access to the information system (information kiosks), for copying and printing services and now also for entering VŠB dormitory buildings. Within student dormitories, the card is used for some other services, such as a self-service laundry. At the same time, this card is important for the identification and payment of dormitory fees in the Accommodation Office.

The card center is located in the main University building in Ostrava-Poruba, room A148, where the student proves his identity with a valid document (eg ID card, passport, etc.). At the Card Center, the student will be told what type of card he wants to produce (ISIC, standard, Alive Student) and whether he requires integration with ODIS.

The validity of the card begins in September. In case of non-participation in enrollment in valid time limits, the student will arrange individually the processing of card at the university Card center.
