Free Food
Did you know that one third of all the food produced in the world is thrown away or depreciated? If this food were saved, it could feed about three billion people. In Europe, there is 96 to 115 kg of discarded food per person a year. One way to reduce waste is sharing food among students.

Free Food UPOL is a Facebook page serving as a space for sharing food between students and University staff. It aims to reduce unnecessary wasting of food. Its members can offer any food that would otherwise be thrown out. Those interested in food will usually call in minutes. Food with a short durability or an extra portion of cooked dinner can easily find its new owner.

For students

Study program
According to the amendment to the Study and Examinations Code, it is possible to specify that a particular subject can only be registered in a given study program once. This can be useful, for example, in "staging" of the study. According to the Study and Examinations Code, however, it must be made in the form of an internal regulation of the faculty. In case you want to bring such a limitation into your curriculum, we ask the guarantors to send their proposals in the following form: Study Program - Type of study (Bc./NMgr/PGS) - Code and title of the subject, to Vice-Dean for Study Affairs Dr. Bartl by March 10, 2019, e-mail:

Registering subjects for Summer semester 2018/2019 - schedule changes
It is possible to make minor changes to schedule at the Study department by March 20, 2019.

Graduation ceremony
We ask graduates who successfully completed their studies by final state examination in January and February to apply for a graduation ceremony at their study referent. These will take place from June 24-28. The exact schedule will be posted on the faculty web site in the second half of June. You can pick up the confirmation of completing studies at the Study Department. Here you can also collect your diplomas at the end of March if you do not want to take part in the graduation ceremony.

Scholarship applications
You must submit applications for regular scholarships until the end of the academic year, i.e. August 2019, not until December 2019. This is due to the fact that STAG works with academic years, not calendar ones; some students finish their studies during the application process; the amounts of scholarships change etc. For September 2019, submit new requests.

Accreditation support at PrF website
A new website dedicated to accreditation procedure was created on the Faculty of Science website. The procedure for the approval of study programs, the dates of meetings of the relevant faculty and university authorities, regulations and, in particular, the accreditation forms together with the methodological guidelines are available here. This web site can be found at

Faculty Operation

Parking around the building of the Faculty of Science
We kindly ask the Faculty of Science to respect parking at the marked parking spaces for the holders of parking cards of PrF and UP. Here you can find a map of marked parking spaces for card holders.

We ask employees not to park on SKM (blue color on the map) in particular, these parking spaces are reserved for SKM employees (8 parking spaces). Places are not reserved for UP card holders, but only for staff and SKM visits. Should the aforementioned not be respected, the city police will be summoned to deal with improper parking by a block penalty. We also remind you that the parking card must be located visibly behind the windscreen.

Communication closure
We would like to inform all employees that from March 27-28, the communication between Faculty of Science and Faculty of Law will be closed. The reason is the moving optical tables to building of the Faculty of Science, within the OPVV project - Modernization of Physics Laboratories on the 4th floor of PrF UP building - Envelopa. Map of the location - here.

On the access road to the parking lot under the administration of the Faculty of Law and the entrance to the underground garages of the Faculty of Science, there will be a lifting technique and a truck with optical tables, etc. Moving cannot be completed during normal operation, therefore the access to the underground garages and the parking lot will not be allowed. If everything is accomplished during March 27, we expect the communication to begin immediately after the completion of the works. Otherwise, the communication will be closed on March 28 as well. We apologize for any complications
