Lugano Est Campus (under construction)

The East Campus Lugano, or USI-SUPSI Viganello Campus, is under construction in Lugano-Viganello (Switzerland) on a site between Via la Santa and Via Boscioro.

From the 2020/21 academic year, it will house lecture rooms and offices of the Faculty of Informatics, the Faculty of Biomedical Sciences, the SUPSI Department of Innovative Technologies and the Dalle Molle Institute for Artificial Intelligence (IDSIA), affiliated with both USI and SUPSI.

It will also have a number of shared spaces, a multi-purpose hall, an exhibition space, a canteen, a crèche and sports areas. It will host around 600 members of staff, 1,000 students on the basic programme and 800 students in continuing education.

The designers for this project, which is called Zenobia, are the Ticino architects Simone Tocchetti and Luca Pessina. The investment amounts to 124 million Swiss francs.
