Services for University Members

The Communications department advises and assists University of Basel staff in effectively disseminating information on topics intended for a broad audience.

Publicizing science

The Communications department regularly publishes news about significant research, major projects and current events. We advise the scientists on how to communicate their research externally. Together, we examine the best possibilities, activities and media and ensure they are implemented.

Press review

The media review page provides a list of current articles and media appearances that are available online.

Within the university network, the Swissdox Essentials media database provides access to news sources from Switzerland.

Translation tools and terminology

German and English are the languages of communication at the University of Basel. The Communications department is helping to implement the use of English as a secondary language of communication by offering several services. You can use our terminology database to look up terms and designations specific to the university and relevant to higher education. Style guides with several recommendations for proper language usage in English texts are available as well.

Social media

We support the organizations of the University of Basel in developing a strong online presence on social networks.


Each year, the University of Basel holds hundreds of events, some of which are intended for a specialized audience. Others are aimed at a wider audience as well. The staff from the Marketing & Events department assists the various university departments and units in organizing and holding events.
