The aki House and Garden
Inside the aki you will find a quiet study room, a chapel, comfortable lounges, a cafeteria equipped with a coffee machine and a soda machine, a variety of newspapers and magazines, as well as bigger and smaller meeting rooms.
The park behind our house and just below ETH Zentrum also belongs to the aki. With its tables and chairs nestled between trees, bushes, and flowers, and with the beautiful view it offers over the city, it serves as a popular recluse among students, who are welcome to eat their lunch here, study, or just hang out and chat. Please be considered when smoking and refrain from consuming intoxicating substances.
Some rooms, such as the study room and the chapel, are free to use for students. We kindly ask you to observe any special announcements and rules that might occasionally be communicated on location and/or online. The meeting rooms can be rented by students (free of charge) and by non-profit organisations for non-commercial events such as training courses and meetings (prices listed in the guidelines below). As of now, the guidelines document is only available in German.
Kindly direct all questions and requests regarding room reservation via e-mail to the secretariat. We hope you will feel at home in our rooms and we look forward to seeing you.
