Failure to return the badge within five working days of the meeting date will result in a fee of CHF 100.

7. Technology & equipment

Personal instruction by the DSI office is available by appointment. Appointment requests should be sent to

The DSI does not receive support from the UZH operations service, as the premises are self-managed. Therefore, in case of problems, only the DSI managing office can be involved, on weekdays between 8:00 and 17:00.

When conducting workshops or similar, the person organizing the event is responsible for organizing any necessary working aids (pens, notepads, post-its, etc.).


The following WIFI networks are available:

  • uzh - for UZH members
  • eduroam - for university members of other institutions participating in eduroam
  • uzh-guest - for external guests
    Guests can authenticate themselves by means of an SMS code.
    If the WIFI uzh-guest is selected, a pop-up window appears explaining the further steps. Tip: First accept the terms and conditions - only then can the cell phone number be entered.

9. Catering

  • The DSI does not provide catering on site.
  • Any catering may only be obtained from the ZFV and must be organized by the person organizing the event (incl. delivery on the day of the event).

The meeting rooms are to be left tidy after each event:

  • Furniture is to be returned to the arrangement as encountered.
  • Whiteboards are «white».
  • Used flipchart sheets and other material are to be disposed of.
  • Any soiling, e.g. after catering, must be removed by the event organizer.
