For whom: every student at the department of botany who is interested in staying / working / studying here.


The student office / common room is available to all students at the department of botany. Currently, the room serves mainly as a general meeting ground, do not expect an office for silent and calm work. If you need such space, contact the managers.

You can find useful supplies in the common room: coffee, tea and sugar, dishes, etc. You can store your own supplies into an empty and signed drawer. You can get your own key in inžovna from the manager of geobotany labs.



For the happiness of all users and mental health of the manager, please follow these rules:

1. Drawers in the common room as well as in the labs must be legibly signed (preferably by stickers). Please clear unused drawers for new students.

ATTENTION! Unlabelled drawers will be emptied approximately once a year and its contents will be given to general use!

2. Do not forget to label your stuff in the shared space (e.g. fridge). Unlabelled things are intended to be for common use. Do not hesitate and use them. Also sign your food in the fridges and other your stuff which you do not want to share. Also please respect signed belongings of other students.

3. Do not forget to switch off the computer every time you leave it, not only in the evening. They often run not only overnight but over the whole weekend. Does not apply for the printers!

4. Clean after yourselves! If you cook in the kitchen, do not leave the pots to soak for a week. There is a number of boxes and jars in the cabinet above the sink you can use to store your meals. Don't leave it on the cooker and don't put the pots to the fridge! After washing, put the dishes where they belong. Broken glass goes to a bin with a sign GLASS.

5. Please, do not take our dishes and cutlery to other rooms!

6. Take into account you are in the vicinity of a chemical lab. Familiarize yourself with the Safety rules (on the wall in the labs) and confirm it with a signature.
