Informations for small room (student room)

Dear,
I would like to know which usual documents/money I have to provide for renting a small room in Zürich. For example, a 12 m² room, with a rent of CHF 600/months?

I know I have to give a deposit to the landlord that can be 3 months rental. I saw on the thread "SwissCaution - the apartment deposit lenders thread" that I can subscribe at http://www.swisscaution.ch/ which is - I think - a quite good solution for a student like me.

But what about finding a guarantor? I heard that I need to find a Swiss guarantor (I'm French).

Anyway, I will go in Zürich in 10 days to find my room and I would like to know every documents I need to take!

Thank you,
Regards

Re: Informations for small room (student room)

I'm in the same situation...moving to Zurich soon and am figuring out what to bring with me in terms of documents for renting a room (not to mention finding the actual room to rent which seems to be equally difficult)

If you're a student, the university that you will be attending should be able to help you out ...not as much with finding a place, more with the paperwork involved. I would talk to the housing office first, if you haven't yet.
I'm actually waiting for the housing office at my university to respond to my questions and I can let you know what I find out if you want (you can PM me)

Good luck!

Okay, I've sent a private message to you! I have problems with private messages, so tell me if you have replied back because I have trouble to find my new message (nothing in inbox...). Or we can exchange by e-mail, facebook, whatever!

I ask to a friend of mine and she recommends me to bring :
-About 2 months rental in cash (for a CHF 600 / month, it would be CHF 1200 to bring in cash)
-The letter of admission of the university
-Passport
-If possible a proof that I have 15000 € in a bank account (from parents, brothers/ sisters)

Is there anything else I should think about?
