The Future of Campus Lausanne

We are currently transforming our Lausanne campus into a harmonious university village that supports a healthy work-life-study balance and facilitates connections between students, faculty and industry partners.

Designed by students, for students

Initiated with crowd-sourcing, the Lausanne campus renovation project called for proposals from architectural schools all over the world. Of the 120 projects submitted, 40 teams were invited to Switzerland to meet with EHL students for feedback and guidance. The result is a new campus that uses innovative solutions for energy efficiency and comfort, in peaceful natural environment that supports a healthy lifestyle.

Certified Eco-Friendly

In line with EHL's CSR objectives, the new campus emulates sustainable living in a healthy ecosystem with an organic orchard, replanting of local trees, and a running trail around the campus that will be open to the public. It has been designed in conformity with Minergie-P© standards, with geothermal probes and a novel wastewater heat recovery system to cover 90% of the school’s heating needs. It will also be equipped with solar panels covering a surface equivalent to three Olympic swimming pools.

Connecting with the Innovation Village

The new campus structure connects EHL's main buildings with the new Innovation Village, which houses EHL's hospitality business incubator, a number of start-ups and industry networking activities.  This proximity allows our student entrepreneurs to collaborate with faculty experts and receive support to launch their businesses. With bars, restaurants and parking spaces, this space is open to the public as a meeting venue where visitors and industry partners can discuss future business initiatives.
