Welcome to ICU


The ICU is the official computer science student association of the University of Zurich. We mainly help students through out their time at UZH and organise social events during and in between semesters. Furthermore, we represent the interests of the students towards the university and act as an interface to the working world by holding numerous events with potential employers.

We are happy to have such good relationships to companies and, especially, our sponsors BSI, JLS, and the Informatics Alumni of the University of Zurich.

Sept 20, 2021 – Jan 31, 2022: COVID certificate/UZH Covidpass requirement at the ICU Lounge

After a two year period where the ICU Lounge has mostly been empty, we are happy to open it again for all our members. However, to do this and to provide a safe space, we decided for a COVID certificate requirement including the UZH Covidpass. This has two main reasons:

  • Since the university requires a COVID certificate in all modules, most of the students who are in the buildings have a COVID certificate anyways.
  • We can open the ICU Lounge only for all members and without the capacity restriction of 3 people if a certificate is shown. The certificate mandate seemed to be the better solution.

Therefore, you have two options to come and chill at the ICU Lounge (almost) as before:

  • Show a valid COVID certificate + ID to a board member each time you enter the ICU Lounge.
  • Show a valid COVID certificate + ID (only vaccinated or recovered and valid until January 31, 2022) to a board member once. Thereafter, he/she adds you to a list (stored in a private Confluence space) such that you can enter the ICU Lounge only by telling us your name.

You find more information about Corona and the testing possibilities at UZH at the UZH website.
