Student life in Zürich

Hi guys,

starting in autumn I will study Electrical Engineering and Information Technology at ETH Zürich. I am hoping to have a good time in Zürich.

Do you guys have any tips regarding preparation or adjusting to student life in Zürich?

Re: Student life in Zürich

try to find an accommodation before you come here because it is very difficult job to do otherwise it is a nice place to live.

DISCLAIMER: The views below are obviously biased as they are my experience, not universal truths

In my experience, Swiss people like other Swiss people a lot, and don't like foreigners that much. I found it hard to really socialise with them, so I hang out more with internationals. However, my house is thankfully relatively Swiss regarding its inhabitants, so I still get to hang out with them.

Housing situation is awful in Zurich, use wgzimmer.ch, set up email alerts and get on that ASAP.

Theres an opening party of ETH, forgot its name, but its free for firstyears, so I'd go there if you're a partying type of guy.

Get a ZVV junior pass I guess if you're going to be using public transports a lot.

If you were more specific in your questions I could give better answers though
