ETH as an event venue

Main content


According to the Regulations on Room Use at ETH Zurich (only in German) events, promotions/installations or distribution campaigns by external providers can only be held at ETH Zurich if there is a direct connection with ETH, education and research.

A third-party/external event is confirmed as having a connection with ETH by being sponsored by an ETH organisation.

What sponsorship entails and what needs to be taken into account is described in the Information sheet (PDF, 35 KB)


The organization of events or other campaigns in connection with the ETH Zurich requires a permit.
