The UNIL Welcome Centre operates as a coordination unit for the various administrative services and faculties, all involved in welcoming new arrivals.

UNIL welcome procedure

The typical welcome procedure for a new employee is as follows: 

  1. Welcome in one of the seven faculties where colleagues and the secretariat will support the new employee in the various actions which need to be taken 
     
  2. Employees with a UNIL contract are supported by the Human Resources Department on all questions related to their recruitment (taxes, work permits, pay, social security contributions, family allowances etc.)

Visitors who do not have a contract with UNIL are supported by the Welcome Centre in the administrative actions they need to take.

The Welcome Centre provides a great deal of information and many resources on its website. It is always available to answer your questions.
