• Log in to the KOS system (registering to exams, etc.)
• Working with the USERMAP system at
• Set up your Faculty-wide password
2. You need your Faculty-wide password to work with FIT services. For instance, to:
• Access your mailbox
• Access the study materials at
• Find out your initial systems password
3. Initial systems password enables you to log in for the first time to independent computing systems. For example, the SUN computer room at the National technical library (NTK).
You can get your username and set up your CTU-wide password after 3rd September, using the first-login application. See
In order to set up your Faculty password, you need to know your CTU password. For details, see . Never tell your password to anyone! Choose sufficiently complex passwords, and keep the three passwords different.

Student ID cards and the ID card publishing house

You will need your student ID at various occasions. For example, to enter the buildings and labs, including the NTK computer room. After 3rd September, pick up your ID card at the CTU ID card publishing house, Bechyňova 3, Prague 6, Telephone: +420 22435 8472, website: .
The ID card publishing house can reset your CTU-wide password, if you forget it.

If you transferred to FIT from another CTU faculty, in particular the Faculty of Transportation Sciences, Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Faculty of Civil Engineering or Faculty of Mechanical Engineering, you also need to visit the publishing house. Ask them to change your authentication source from your original faculty to USERMAP, and at the same time ask them to set your CTU-wide (usermap) password.
