The use of information technology within the Faculty’s information system is governed by Dean’s Measure No. 4/2016 (Czech only).
Central Authentication Service (CAS)
CAS is responsible for enabling users to log into a wide range of information services provided by the University. The principal information for Faculty users is provided on the CAS website (CIT, natur.cuni.cz/fakulta/cit/navody/cas; Czech only).
CAS Login and Faculty Login
When you receive your student card (see ISIC and Student Card), you will be given your identification number of person, a CAS login, and an initial password. Your ID number of person is printed on the student card below the photograph. You can find your CAS login once you sign in to CAS at ldapuser.cuni.cz/, using your ID number of person. Two login names will be displayed: a personal number (eight digits) and a login. Newly generated Faculty login is the same as the CAS logins. are the same as the CAS logins. You can log into CAS, SIS, and most University-wide applications that use CAS for authentication using the CAS login or the personal number. The Faculty login is used for logging into the Faculty information system (computer rooms and study halls, the printing system, the Faculty website). To log into Faculty cloud systems (Google Workspace, Microsoft 365) use the Faculty e-mail in the form “email@example.com”.
The initial password is valid for five days only and serves solely to set up a full, “verified” password. The verified password is valid for 365 days. Within 15 minutes of setting up the initial or verified password in the CAS, the password is automatically set in other FSc systems – provided that it already exists. Setting up the initial password initiates the creation of other accounts within FSc systems.
Certain new accounts require as long as 24 hours to set up! We recommend entering your telephone number and e-mail address, other than faculty and university, in the CAS; this eliminates the necessity for a physical visit should you forget your password or should it expire. Access can be renewed even when using a recently expired password.
Initial password: It is possible to obtain an initial password (even again) at any ID card issuing centre (cuni.cz/UK-1445.html), at the Faculty of Arts at the following designated workplaces:
Library of Geology (Albertov 6, ground floor right)
Library of Biology (Viničná 7, 1st floor, opposite the staircase)
Department of Information Technology (Albertov 6, basement S02, S04)
Student ID is required to verify identity at the libraries; elsewhere, ID or passport is accepted. The validity of the initial CAS password is only 5 calendar days from the date of issue.
Verified password: You can change your password to extend its validity after logging in to CAS.
Unverified password. If you are unable to log in to your faculty account or to your CAS or SIS accounts, please consult the instructions and information on the CIT website, use the helpdesk or contact CIT.
