No special provisions are currently in effect; the academic year 2022-23 will start ordinarily.

Latest developments
USI follows the development of COVID-19 and is ready to adjust to the directions of federal and cantonal authorities, promptly implementing any new protection provisions. Current information on the development of the number of cases in Switzerland is published by the Federal Office of Public Health, which also maintains the infoline +41 58 463 00 00 Monday through Friday, 8 am to 6 pm. The address [email protected] remains active. Tracking activities are suspended. 

Lectures and exams
Lectures and exams will be held in attendance and in line with the customary arrangements outlined in the Study Regulations of each Faculty. For exams, in addition to absence due to illness, for which a medical certificate is required, students who are unable to show up for one or more exams because they have tested positive or are in isolation as ordered by the health authorities (with proof from a pharmacy or the competent authorities) may also be considered excused.

Entering Switzerland
There are currently no entry restrictions due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Current information on travel and entering Switzerland is available on the FOPH website. Should significant regulations regarding travel and related quarantines be reintroduced during the academic year, USI will commit to supporting those who are temporarily unable to travel to campuses.
