Are you currently at either Sinkuleho or Dejvická dormitory? First, register to our club Sincoolka through SINIS. It will only take a couple of minutes.

During the registration, you will register your first device's MAC address. This device will gain access to the network shortly after registration, for 5 days.

To complete the registration, you will then visit our office (LAB) during the office hours.

And finally, you will pay the membership fee - for access to the network, you will need at least Basic and Network membership. You will have 14 days to pay after signing the form.

If you want to register other devices or change the currently registered devices, please follow the instructions at this link.

We offer nice benefits for our members with Network membership, including (but not limited to):

Note that when your membership expires, you will lose access to these benefits. We delete the content of expired members shortly after expiration to save space (and to comply with GDPR).

If you happen to lose access and need to get some data out, feel free to contact us and we will see what we can do.
