Students who are subject to military obligations are reminded that there is an "Army-University" liaison office within the framework of the University and, to this end, we invite them to read this circular carefully.  

The representative of our Faculty in this office is the following:


Professor Sébastien CASTELLTORT 
Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences
Rue des Maraîchers, 13 - 1205 Geneva  


Submission of applications ONLY as a pdf file by e-mail to Sebastien.Castelltort(at)
The mission of this office is to resolve any difficulties that may arise for students between their military obligations and their programme of studies.
Students who are required to perform military service are obliged to consult the deployment tables (press and posters of the military affairs service) from September onwards for the following year. In case of doubt, please contact


Service for Civil Protection and Military Affairs (SPCAM)
Chemin du Stand 4, 1233 Bernex
Tel. 022 546 77 00 - militaire(at)
Opening hours: from 7:30 to 11:30 am and from 1:30 to 4 pm


If a difficulty arises, please contact the relevant liaison office advisor immediately. The request must be filled in in advance, on the travel request form which you will find on the website:


In this respect, careful planning of the exams must be carried out. The earlier an application is made, the more likely it is to be successful. Requests to be moved from military service submitted less than 4 months before entry into service will not be considered.
