Professors retire at the end of the semester in which they reach the age of 65 (§ 5 para. 1 UZH Employment Ordinance, PVO-UZH).

Even after they have retired, professors remain members of UZH and their former faculty. They continue to be invited to Senate meetings, albeit without the right to vote or be elected.
