Housing/dorm near EPFL

Hi there!

I'm an American, and I'm thinking of staying at EPFL for a few months or so. What is the temporary housing like in Switzerland? From what I've been reading here, it looks like getting a place to stay for 4 months is difficult - is this the case?

Has anyone attended EPFL? What is the dorm like there? Is it clean, how big is it, how expensive? If I decide to seek an off-campus housing, is it more expensive? are they generally clean? safe?

If someone could give me an overview of what to expect, that would be great.

Thanks, and see you in Switzerland!

There are no dorms at EPFL. It is very difficult to find housing in Lausanne. The EPFL may be able to help you. Best of luck!

Re: Housing/dorm near EPFL

Are you a undergrad/masters student? Then EPFL provides some shared accommodations. They are all off campus, but cheap/clean/safe etc.

If you are not, it is a bit hard to find housing here, especially if it is only for few months. You should talk to the group you are joining and ask them to help you out.
