Arriving in Switzerland on Wednesday (Neuchatel or Lausanne?)
 
Hi all,

This wednesday, I will leave Edinburgh to come in Switzerland to study. I am going to do lessons both in university of Lausanne and in University of Neuchatel.

I booked hostel for 3 days in Lausanne. Where do you think I should live in Neuchatel or Lausanne?

I realized that it is very difficult to find an apartment in Switzerland.

If I were in your shoes, I would spend a couple weeks in-between and get a feel for the cities, check out rent prices, etc, and see which you prefer.

I love Neuchatel, but I prefer smaller cities, and actually haven't been to Lausanne yet. Good luck!

I think you'll find Neuchâtel cheaper if that sways you in any way?

Neuchatel will be consistently cheaper - smaller town, and a lot less lively.
Lausanne has a much bigger student community - with a larger university, plus the EPFL. that means more students, more nightlife, more concerts, more people, more costs... and so on. It is a package.

Neuchatel is more quaint; really, it depends on what you prefer.
