Toni Campus

ZHdK at Toni: A Pulsating Campus for the Arts and Design

Our new Toni Campus in Zurich West is a vision come true: an arts university that brings all the disciplines in the arts and design together in an extraordinary location. The former dairy factory, whose closure made way for cutting-edge clubs like the Dachkantine to set the cultural tone with epoch-making events and art exhibitions, is now the home of Zurich University of the Arts, the largest arts university in Switzerland.

The Toni Campus allows the exchange of ideas and techniques across a broad range of disciplines: here, art and design education, dance, design, film, music, theatre, and the visual arts work side by side and cross-fertilise each other beyond disciplinary confines.

Our new home for around 2800 students and 700 staff boasts excellently equipped workshops, the Schaudepot (viewing depot) of the Museum für Gestaltung Zürich (Museum of Design Zurich), a cinema, various concert halls and exhibition spaces, and the Mehrspur Music Club. Architectural highlights include the rooftop garden with workspaces and seating opportunities, a cascading staircase, and the landmarked entrance ramp.

Over a thousand events each year provide the wider public with ample opportunity to enjoy Zurich University of the Arts as a pulsating centre of the arts and design.
