Thank You Village! It's just that I was a bit afraid to be "far from everything", and especially from my work.
Depending on exactly where in Binningen it'll be a 30-40min walk from the University, but about five minutes by tram or bike. It has a bit of a centre of its own, small supermarkets, post office, pharmacy, sort of thing and is indeed considered one of the nicer areas of Basel.

Hello, I will move to Basel for work very soon.
I was offered an accommodation in Binningen, does anybody know how this area is?

I'm afraid that is far from almost everything! Thanks
It's Switzerland. There's no such thing as "far"

It will take you some 10-20mins by tram to get to the university, 30-40mins by foot, 5-10mins or so by car. You won't even notice that you're not living in the city - Basel and Binningen (along with several other towns and villages) are literally next to each other, with no visible border.

It's a quieter, somewhat more residential area, green, a bit more family-oriented.
