2. As of Thursday, March 19 and until further notice, the institutional restaurant N Cocina & Nutrición is closed at the El Poblado headquarters.

From the Office of Global Affairs, students who are abroad are contacted daily to verify their health status. Likewise, we invite students interested in carrying out mobility for the second semester to be attentive to the official communication media of our institution.

We are taking all necessary measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

We all take care of each other.
