The EUI and the EUI Library will be closed for the Easter Break from Thursday 29 March to Monday 2 April inclusive. During the closure EUI members will be able to access all EUI buildings (including internal car parks) using their EUI ID Card.
The Upper Cloister and the canteen area of the Badia (Wi-Fi connection available) will be as usual accessible to all EUI researchers: cleaning services will be guaranteed in these spaces and in the nearby facilities only, and a vending machine in the bank corridor will be available for use.
Please note: due to refurbishment works that will be carried out in the Sala Buonsanti at the Badia Fiesolana during the closure, some noisy activities are expected in that area.
Heating systems will be switched off during the break, with the exception of the Badia Upper Cloister and common areas, in compliance with the EUI heating and cooling policy.
Access to the Badia Fiesolana will be possible via the pedestrian entrance in the Church square, via Villa Sanfelice, via the pedestrian gate of the connecting road between Villa Schifanoia and the Badia, and via the gate of the Badia Fiesolana car park.
Detailed maps with highlighted access points to the various EUI buildings during the closure are available at the following links:
For security reasons the Real Estate and Facilities Service reminds users to close the external shutters of windows before they leave for the break. Furthermore, the Institute will not provide assistance for watering office plants, so individuals should make their own provisions accordingly.
The ICT Service would like to inform users that during the closure all systems relating to the web, internet, VPN and home directories will be monitored. The webmail service will be always reachable from this link: http://portal.office365.com
The multi-function printer in the Upper Cloister will be monitored remotely and technicians will intervene in case of blocking situations.
Tickets opened on the EUI Helpdesk will not be treated during the closure, they will be assigned and processed only at the reopening of the Institute on 3 April.
Please note: we remind you that a new and redesigned helpdesk tool will go live on 3 April, all relevant information is available at www.eui.eu/helpdesk
