“It only takes a drop of your time to save a life”: this is the catchphrase of the two-day blood drive that will be back on Lugano campus on Wednesday, 13 November and Thursday, 14 November, 2019.

It is the chance to help the Swiss Red Cross Blood Transfusion Centre and donate blood to save patients in need. To donate, one must be 18 or older, weight more than 50 kg, be in good health, and show up at the stand with a valid ID on a full stomach. 


Donations will be collected in room 351 (main building):

  • Wednesday, 13 November: from 11 am to 4 pm;
  • Thursday, 14 November: from 10 am to 3 pm.


One single donation can help up to three different patients. There are plenty of reasons to donate blood, as explained by a few donors in this short video clip. More information on the blood donation can be found at: https://www.donatori.ch/donazione/
