Health & Safety Plan

During the current public health crisis, we, at the Geneva School of Economics and Management and the University of Geneva, are doing everything in our power to ensure the continuation of our missions. A protection plan for the University of Geneva has been adopted, which sets out the protection provisions and recommendations of the institution.

Remote teaching & working

In coordination with the cantonal and federal health authorities, University of Geneva has added three major measures to its protection plan: the switch to remote teaching for the rest of the 2020–2021 fall semester; the priority will be for all UNIGE staff members to work from home; and there will be no in-person public events in University buildings. The aim of all these measures is to limit contacts between individuals and considerably reduce the number of people in University buildings. > Read more

Use of face masks

In order to guarantee the wearing of the face mask everywhere and at all times, the University encourages members of its community to take their meals only in the cafeterias. These areas are subject to the catering protection plan including contact tracing. As of October 12, the cafeterias increase their capacity where everyone can now eat even if they bring their own lunch and don’t purchase anything there. Wearing a face mask is also compulsory in the library areas. The University asks everyone to follow health and safety rules  at the entrances of the buildings too. > Use of face mask at UNIGE
