New Student in Lausanne -- HELP!! Tips for finding housing please

Hello all!

I have recently quit my job and moved to lausanne to pursue a masters degree and I am having a really tough time finding a place to stay. I have looked on hundreds of websites and i am still unable to find a place to stay. I even have a swiss national that is willing to be my guarantor for the duration of the lease. But the rental agencies dont seems to like my situation.

Any tips or suggestions or solutions to my stiuation? Do you know of any short term rental places for 1500CHF a month?

Does anyone know the criteria the rental agenceis use to give apartments?

Please Help me. I need to find a place ASAP.

Re: New Student in Lausanne -- HELP!!

it would help to know if you are looking for shared accomodation or for a complete apartment (what size)

Dont worry, as far as I know Lausanne and Geneva are also tough to find accomodation quickly..

Generaly the university also provides student with lots of assistance in terms of advertisemtn and forums etc .. Have you tried that ..


good luck..

Re: New Student in Lausanne -- HELP!!

It's extremely difficult to get an apartment in Lausanne. And globally, the gerances don't like students

I'd advise to look for shared accommodations: the intranet website of UNIL will help you with that, as well as the numerous ads on the walls in the university buildings.

Good luck!

I've moved this as it really isn't an intro and you are not yet allowed to advertise on here either.
Have you seen the specifically student sites for housing? There have been several given on here. You'll have to do a bit of searching though.

Good luck.

Akarmali

It is comparatively easier to find something around renens and crissier and they are quite close to EPFL/unil , a studio should not cost more than 800 , also on campus there are usually plenty of advertisement for sharing the accom, finally there is one student accommodation near ouchy (near imd) I can't seems to remember the name but it is right on the main road, try there as well , good luck

Also if you are on the verge of sleeping under a bridge and are in dire need of a quick temp accomodation, there is a youth hostel close to the lake near Maladiere that offers rooms.
