Telč - Former Jesuit College Reconstruction – Central European Centre for Cultural Heritage

The former Jesuit College was first utilized for educational purposes in 2002; University Centre Telč (UCT) was established three years later. Following extensive renovation in the 2009 to 2011 period, the UCT was able to move its activities to the newly restored complex. The resulting modern integrated compound forms a state-of-the-art facility essential for the study-related and educational programmes organized by Masaryk University.

The entire renovation was carried out with the support of the European Economic Area (EEA) and Norway Grants. At the time, the project formed the most extensive undertaking of its kind in the Czech Republic: the renovation expenses amounted to a total of 145 million CZK; 85 % of the overall funds were provided by Norway.

As a result, over 5,000 m2 of floor space were either renovated or newly developed and adapted to serve as lecture rooms, classrooms and offices for academic staff. In addition, the complex now also includes accommodation facilities as well as a library and counselling and information centre. Lecture rooms have been newly equipped with cutting-edge audiovisual and information technology. A new café and canteen are located on the ground floor.
