Work-related meetings

Work-related meetings must be held by video conference whenever possible. In-person meetings can have a maximum of 5 people and must take place in compliance with EPFL’s health and safety rules.

Work-related meetings are meetings that are part of staff members’ normal work duties and that are required for a unit to fulfill its missions.


Any type of EPFL event, whether on the Lausanne campus, on one of EPFL’s other sites, or on non-EPFL premises (conferences, symposiums, cultural and celebratory events, association meetings, etc.), can be held as long as no food or drinks are served and attendance does not exceed 15 people.

We advise you not to hold any private events, but if you do, you must comply with the federal and cantonal rules applicable to events.

Cultural sites

Cultural sites that are open to the public (EPFL Pavilions, Archizoom, Musée Bolo, STCC) can accommodate up to 50 people indoors (with no more than one-third of the seats filled) or 100 people outside, as long as the health and safety measures currently in effect are carefully complied with.
