Updated 25 June 2021

The cafeterias are open to the university community and external visitors. They are for catering use only. The UNIGE encourages the members of its community not to take their meals in the relaxation or work areas but only in the cafeterias. Their capacity is improved so that everyone, whether a client or not, can have a meal there, including those brought in from outside. The cafeterias are subject to the protection plan for the catering sector which provides for :

  • Wearing a mask: it is compulsory to wear a mask indoors, including in queues and when moving around. It can only be removed once seated. It can also be removed on the terrace.
  • Contact tracing: in accordance with the provisions specific to the catering sector, contact tracing is compulsory in the UNIGE cafeterias, indoors only. The identity and a reliable means of contact of customers or at least one person per group of customers must be collected. Neither the UNIGE nor the cafeteria providers have access to the personal data collected, which is intended solely for the use of the Cantonal Medical Service.
  • Seated consumption indoors: drinks may only be consumed while seated.
  • There is a distance of at least 1.5 meters between the tables, inside and outside.

Starting on 1 March 2021, the UNIGE shop in the Uni Dufour is open from Monday to Friday from 9.30 am to 2 pm. Staff members, students and the general public can place online orders. 

Ventilation of UNIGE buildings is generally provided by two different systems, depending on the building: mechanical ventilation by means of air supply and extraction or natural ventilation through the façade and windows. For mechanically ventilated rooms, air renewal is subject to the standard of 25 m3 per hour per person and 36 m3 per hour per person in newer buildings. These standards are respected at UNIGE. In manually ventilated rooms, the standard provides for ventilation by opening the windows for ten minutes, 4 times a day, allowing for efficient air renewal. Ventilation maintenance is carried out regularly, by the Régies for rented buildings, by the OCBA for state buildings and by the University for UNIGE buildings.
