Coronavirus: changes in reception conditions from November 3

Following the announcement of the State of necessity by the Geneva Cantonal Government, UNIGE is continuing to implement the major protective measures.

To allow the UNIGE / HUG community to continue its research, teaching and study activities in suitable and secure workspaces, the Library is implementing new health protection measures and restricting certain services from November 3.

The UNIGE Library is open according to the following hours:

  • Monday-Friday: 9am-10pm
  • Saturday-Sunday: 9am-6pm

Opening hours and the level of attendance at reading rooms can be viewed in real time on this page and the UNIGE mobile application.

Reception conditions and protective measures

From November 3, to ensure everyone's safety, wearing a mask AND respecting the safety distance are mandatory at all times.

Also, the distance of 1.5m between people has been reintroduced in spaces with new signage, which leads to a reduction in reception capacities.

Given this reduction in the number of available work places, the seats are reserved exclusively for the UNIGE-HUG community. Please make your multiservice student card available on the table.

The external public can come to the Library to return or borrow documents.

To these measures must now be added the systematic disinfection of workplaces before and after occupancy by users using the wipes or disinfectant products made available.

Group work booths are now closed until further notice.

The Library team does everything possible to allow the UNIGE and HUG community to work in the best possible conditions.

Thank you for your understanding.
