Welcome, Dear Guests,
If you are in need of a room for a conference, seminar, cocktail, or any other type of event, AUBG offers a variety of suitable and convenient options that will satisfy any of your needs.
Green Pass Campus
The American University in Bulgaria is committed to the health, safety and wellbeing of everyone on campus. This is why we have introduced the GreenPass campus in Spring ‘22, which means that you will need to have a Green Pass to enter the campus premises. The Green Pass system is currently the only possible way to safely host and conduct on-ground events given the severity of the pandemic situation in the country and the current COVID-19-related government orders. Read more here.
The following policies will also be implemented to minimize the potential health risks in the emergency state of COVID-19 pandemic:
- Information tables will be allowed with maximum 2 guests (masks/shields and disinfectant are mandatory inside)
- Approval for events will be granted on a case-by-case basis based on the health and safety protocol for the event, submitted by the organizers under these conditions:
- Use of AUBG facilities at 50% capacity;
- Social distancing;
- Masks mandatory inside;
- All guests must complete a “DECLARATION OF INFORMED CONSENT AND SHARED RESPONSIBILITY” prior to their event.
