Receptions conditions on Library

To ensure safety and that you can work comfortably in the library while maintaining social distancing, work places have been spread out and the library’s capacity has been reduced.

Given the reduction of library's capacity, members of the UNIGE/HUG community will given priority access to seated spots, particularly during periods of busy times. In this case, the multiservice student card may be requested. These provisions may be re-evaluated at any time, depending on changes in attendance.

Since August 24, you must wear a face mask when moving around the library as well as all UNIGE buildings. If you are in the library, you are therefore authorized to remove your face mask once you are seated and if social distance of 1,5 meters is respected. You must put it on again when you stand up to leave.

At all times, thank you for respecting personal hygiene and social behavior:
