In accordance with the public-health measures announced by the Federal Council, all EPFL classes and exercise sessions – including those for first-year and CMS students – will be given online through the end of the spring 2021 semester. This move is intended to help stem the spread of COVID-19.

Class activities that require an on-site presence (such as practicals, projects and workshops) may continue, in accordance with the Modulo rotating-group system (if applicable) and under the responsibility of the unit head or the person in charge of the activity in question.

Masks must be worn at all times in buildings at all EPFL sites. You must follow the health and safety guidelines, which include maintaining a social distance of at least 1.5 meters whenever possible and washing your hands often. We also need to prevent large groups of people from forming on public transportation and in our School’s hallways, cafeterias and bathrooms.
