Piano rooms (English version)

Five piano rooms are made available on the campus by UNIL and EPFL. The University Chamber Music Association (AUMC) has placed some pianos in each of those rooms. At EPFL, the pianos are reserved for the AUMC members, especially pianists who can not rehearse at home.


The piano rooms at EPFL are accessible for AUMC members, that are also EPFL students or staff, on payment of 50 chf per year.

From September 2021, the piano rooms at UNIL will be accessible for free for UNIL staff and students. For now, the piano rooms at UNIL are accessible for AUMC members.

(Update from September 16th, 2021). The only available piano is the electric piano in room 1354. Room 1355 is under work because of a flood, and the Schimmel from room 1353 is being worked on till the end of September.
