Meals and Board  


Students of JAMU can eat at the Masaryk University canteen. The canteen is situated in the Masaryk University rector´s office building at Moravské nám. 9, close to the Faculty of Music of JAMU.
The academic canteen offers lunches and dinners. You can order lunch from approx. 8 meals 1 day in advance, or from 4 meals at the day. There is always 1 vegetarian meal to order.

The canteen also offers an opportunity to obtain food in the evening (ie. dinner), until 7 o'clock.


The canteen uses a chip ordering system. At the office on the first floor, the diner sells a credit card and deposits a certain sum of money: 50,- CZK charge for the card + money for the meals (how much, it´s up to you). To get the credit card, you have to show your student card from JAMU. The second alternative is the ISIC card, into which you can deposit money directly. Money can be deposited into the card at all cash desks in the canteen.

To order meals and to buy products from the supplementary sale use the credit card. Lunches can be ordered at the furthest the day before until 2 p.m. by means of the computer or the ordering boxes at the canteen or by internet.

The price of the ordered meal and also the price of the products from the supplementary sale are automatically deducted of the deposited sum of money in the card. The information display shows you the account balance of your credit card. If you have any doubt about the account drawing, the officer or the chief will print you "the history of the diner´s account".

If you don´t order the meal in time, the canteen offers a number of portions without order. However, you should come early, as the capacity of these portions is limited.

Restaurants differ in quality. A meal in Asian fast food shops is about 60 CZK. Many typical Czech pubs offer midday meals at reduced prices (70-90 CZK, 2,8-3,6 EUR). Meals "a la menu" are usually cca 100 - 200 crowns (4-8 EUR). You can find McDonalds, KFC or restaurants of many ethnic groups (such as Chinese, Turkish, Syrian or Slovakian) in Brno. Prices of a glass of beer (0,5l) are 15 - 25 CZK (0,6-1 EUR). There are also many Czech fast food shops in the town centre.


Shops and supermarkets selling food and foodstuffs are open between 7 a.m. and 6 p.m. Several shops do not close before 10 p.m. and at weekends. A Tesco supermarket located outside the town centre is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week. It has a free bus service located behind the down-town Tesco. A popular and very good vegetable market "Zelny trh" is in the town centre, too.
