EHLfamily: 1998, First campus extensions

EHL Alumni | 10 Aug, 2016

In 1995, in order to cope with the increased duration of the program (from 5 to 6 semesters), major changes had to be made on the campus infrastructure.

In September 1997, new buildings were partially opened and the project was entirely finalized in May 1998.

The new infrastructure included 19km of copper cables for the new IT network, 6,000 cubic meters of concrete and 480 tons of steel. Around 80 companies and 1,000 workers were involved in the project.

More specifically, the new buildings were composed of a 120-seat restaurant, a take-away service, a bar, a library of 1,000sqm and administrative offices. The classroom capacity was doubled thanks to 20 new rooms and an auditorium fitting 250 seats named after EHL's founder Tschumi.


Back then, the campus was able to welcome 1,200 students. EHL’s future campus will be able to host up to three times more.
