A Campus Designed by Students, for Students

Our new eco-friendly campus extension was designed "by students, for students" to incorporate social design and use the natural campus environment for maximum inspiration. Initiated with crowd-sourcing, the project called for proposals from architectural schools all over the world.

Practical Learning Facilities

This campus offers state-of-the-art practical learning areas for you to explore the art of hospitality and get hands-on experience with every function of a hotel and restaurant. The practical learning courses are highly visible, allowing students and visitors to see the learning process in action and be immersed in a five-star hospitality setting.

  • 12 Kitchens = 12 Classrooms: Every kitchen in the school is also a learning environment. 
  • See-Through Kitchens: A demonstration kitchen, pastry kitchen, and catering kitchen are on display, offering everyone a good view of the tools and techniques used in the industry.
  • R&D Kitchen: Does not serve customers, allowing students to experiment and innovate their own dishes
  • Peter Michael Wine Laboratory: For wine tasting and the study of wine-making methods and qualities
  • Berceau des Sens, our Michelin-starred restaurant, for fine-dining service and culinary arts
  • Instructional Garden & Orchard to show students how seasonal produce is cultivated and used
  • Innovation Village Food Lab: 400m 2 of space to test and develop new food concepts

A Learning Environment Without Barriers

One of the most surprising features of the new campus extension is the absence of many walls. From the entrance, you can see from end to end, and the 2,600m-long ‘Verrière’ section (opening in September 2022) connects the old campus to the new campus. This wide-open space encourages students, faculty, and visitors to be open-minded and ‘think outside of the box’ in an environment where living, learning and having fun all blends together.

Auditorium: This multimedia auditorium has a seating capacity of 220, which can be increased to 300. Named after the school's founder, Jacques Tschumi, it is used for conferences, seminars, lectures and external events.

Aula: This event hall has a seating capacity of 270 to 500. It is used for graduation ceremonies, student events and gala dinners for external clients.

Classrooms: The Lausanne campus has more than 50 classrooms, all conveniently located in N building and wheelchair accessible.

Library (Information Center) : In addition to the hundreds of workstations on campus, the library can accommodate 250 students. It offers a collection of some 38,000 volumes and provides access to millions of digital documents: databases, ebooks, articles from academic journals, newspapers, etc. The library is a member of the SLSP network of 470 Swiss academic libraries, whose collections (over 30 million titles) are accessible to our students via a free interlibrary loan service.

Study Rooms & Areas: Rooms are available for study and meetings in N Building, and “Meet & Retreat” areas in M Building. Students also often work in the Food Court and Hall N outside of meal hours. The Study Rooms can be reserved using Outlook, for 4 hours maximum.


A Big Campus with a Small Footprint

EHL is on a journey toward sustainability and our new campus aims to integrate sustainable living concepts throughout the campus experience. We aim for and maintain the highest standards possible for sustainability, starting with adhering to the stringent Minergie-P© energy consumption standards, which demand 80% self-sufficiency in energy use. This goal is ambitious but, thanks to renewable technology integrated throughout the campus, it’s becoming a reality.
