Re: US person with dual Swiss/EU spouse, living in CH: any EU privileges?

Short answer: no, having a Swiss/German spouse doesn't help you much.

As far as University fees go, you're not EU. You can't claim the citizenship of your spouse.

As far as EU candidates are concerned, this is probably related to the type of permit you have. You are probably on a non-EU B permit (the credit card type that is renewed every year) and so are not an EU candidate. However, as taskalem stated, you already have the permit, so in your applications, you should explicitly state this. If it makes you feel better, in another 1.5 years, you'll get the magic C permit, which doesn't distinguish between EU and non-EU.

At least this is my experience (US married to Swiss).
