The University also appeals to everyone who wants to help Ukraine to join one of the ongoing fundraising or other charitable initiatives.

The University of West Bohemia is prepared to provide war refugees from Ukraine with room and board. The university has the available capacity to put up 150 people in its Nečtiny Training and Accommodation Facility and an additional 60 people in its student dormitories in Pilsen. The university will coordinate the process of accepting Ukrainian refugees with the Pilsen Region, which, based on the decision by the Ministry of the Interior, should soon set up a regional center for assistance.

UWB is in direct contact with its partner universities in Ukraine and communicates with its Ukrainian students and academics, for whom it has set up a special email address info4ua@service.zcu.cz. As part of the University's support, students will have an emergency manager and a psychologist at their disposal.

Ukrainians interested in studying Czech language may take advantage of the University's offer of free Czech language courses in both online and in-person format.

The University also appeals to everyone who wants to help Ukraine to join one of the ongoing fundraising or other charitable initiatives.

On Wednesday March 2, a meeting between representatives of higher education institutions, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and the Czech National Agency for International Education and Research will be held to discuss the involvement of Czech HEIs in providing aid to Ukraine. More information will be available after the meeting.
