Welcome to the ATP!

Welcome to the Zurich University!

We warmly welcome you as a new colleague among the colourful ranks of the ATP.

What is ATP? Not everyone is familiar with this term.

ATP stands for "Administrative and Technical Personnel/Staff". It covers all employees of the UZH who neither teach nor do research. Currently this group counts app. 3’000 people; app. 65% are female.


ATP works in all seven faculties and in the services (Zentrale Dienste = ZDU). Next to the services the Faculty of Medicine comprises by far the most ATP, including staff members who work for the University Hospital Zurich (USZ) but are employed by the UZH.
