6 months accommodation - places to search

Hi,
I was wondering if anyone has any advice for where I might be able to find an apartment/house for 3 people to live in for 6 months. We are students coming over to work for 6 months.

- On homegate (and flatfox.ch) people seem to turn us down because 6 months is too short
- Airbnb is too expensive
- Wgzimmer is for advertisements for 1 room only

Our placement starts at the beginning of April so we're pretty stressed

Thanks

check out serviced apartment like city apartments, swiss star apartments, vision apartments, aw-immo etc. You can also look at http://www.ums.ch

Our work is in 8002 Zurich, so as close to there as possible.

Budget - 2500CHF a month although depends on the place.

Thanks! Will definitely look on ums.ch. I'd prefer not getting a serviced apartment because the cleaning and extra services will probably bring the price up...

From when on do you need an apartment and would you be ok with commuting 40mins?

Beginning of April; we'd be going in every day and probably staying late, as well as visiting zurich at the weekends, so preferably not We are really looking for something within Zurich city, on the west side. Over half a year the travel will really add up.
