Blood donation at USI

USI is pleased to welcome on the Lugano campus the blood donation days, organised in cooperation with the Swiss Red Cross Blood Transfusion Centre.

You can donate on:

  • Tuesday, November 28, 2017, from 11AM to 4PM - room 351 (Main building)
  • Wednesday, November 29, 2017, from 10AM to 3PM - room 351 (Main building)

You are eligible to donate blood if you are in good health, weigh more than 50Kg and if you are 18 or older. All you have to do is show up at the welcome desk with a photo ID, and after having had a full meal.

One single donation can help up to three different patients. There are plenty of reasons to donate blood, as explained by a few donors in this video clip:
