The facility committee supervises common interests of all units on the premises at Unitobler. The house rules defines its tasks. The committee usually meets once per semester. The president can decide upon daily business applications without consulting the committee.

Please inform the facility management or facility committee in advance if you plan activities in common spaces. This helps us avoid e.g. double bookings and other unwelcome surprises. The maps below show spaces at Lerchenweg 36 where coffee breaks, apéros, or poster presentations are welcome.
