UZH for Staff


Employees must retire when they reach the age of 65 at the latest.
This applies regardless of gender and does not depend on the regular retirement age (64 for women and 65 for men).

We recommend that you give some thought about your pension planning at an early stage and make use of the available educational resources. You can find information regarding courses, early retirement and temporary continued employment in the fact sheet on retirement (below).
