Although the University of Olomouc has several dozen buildings, it has not been seen in the city center for a long time. This changed in mid-April 2015, when the UPoint Information Center was opened on Horní náměstí (Upper Square) as a “UP showcase”. Since then, not only the academic community but also the general public, including tourists, is close to us.
Are you interested in study opportunities for all generations, university educational and cultural events or the Graduate program? Or do you just want tips on what interesting places to visit in Olomouc?
We have answers for almost everything for you. And we also have city maps and promotional publications of the university (however, larger numbers must be ordered from the communication department), which we will be happy to give you free of charge so that you have a better overview of everything.
We offer a number of practical subjects that can make your day more pleasant and at the same time will constantly remind you of the university. From pens and notebooks to mugs, backpacks or our stylish author’s UniWearCity fashion collection to picnic blankets, for which we recommend buying UP Ale university beer or university wine and enjoying a quiet picnic in one of the famous parks in Olomouc. We carefully select local suppliers, local designers and local creatives, many of whom came from among our students or graduates. You can read their stories on our blog.
Many UP students, graduates or employees have a poetic gut and publish interesting books – from poetry to prose to popular science publications. A selection of the most interesting titles awaits you in our small bookstore, where you will also find books related to Olomouc, Palacký University or those produced by Palacký University Press (see the complete offer on their e-shop). Books can only be purchased in person at UPoint store, but you can also choose from the comfort of your home on your computer – look in the Bookshop section.
All our items are designed and manufactured in accordance with the Unified Visual Style of UP. If you are looking for suitable promotional items for the internal needs of your workplace, for your partners or conference guests, do not hesitate to use our internal store, where we offer our products at special prices. Contact us even if you are planning your own promotional items.
We offer students, graduates and employees a 10% discount on the purchase in the stone shop upon presentation of the relevant card (ISIC / Student Card, Employee Card or Graduate Card). The discount does not apply to already discounted products or selected goods.
Our small exhibition space can be used free of charge by all students, graduates or UP employees to exhibit their photographs or other works of art. In the form of exhibitions, we also bring life closer to university Olomouc. We will help you with the preparation and promotion, do not hesitate to contact us.
Come and sit with us for coffee or refresh yourself with a free glass of tap water. Read in the University Journal, charge your phone, connect to wi-fi and maybe apply to us on that occasion. Use our quiet reading room to study, tutor or work on a laptop. Would you like to book the place? Write us.
Palacký University remains in contact with its students even after graduation. It provides registered members of the Alumni Club with up-to-date information from the university campus, invitations to interesting events, and a number of discounts and benefits. As a registered member, you can apply for a Alumni Card on the graduate program website, thanks to which you will receive interesting benefits from the university and external partners. UPoint serves as a point of issue for alumni cards. After issuing the card, you will be invited by e-mail to pick it up in person in UPoint. If you choose something nice in our shop, you can use your alumni benefit in the form of a 10% discount on our range of goods.
