Intern moving to Zurich NEED TO FIND ROOM ASAP

Hi all,

This is my first post. I will be relocating to Zurich to start a 6-month internship on March the 14th so I need to quickly secure a Zimmer without viewing before
I move on March 11th.

I'm looking for a room in Zurich preferably within walking distance of 8045. However, I am struggling when it comes to replies from people on WGZIMMER.
Does anyone know of any available rooms?

Thanks,

Pascal

Re: Intern moving to Zurich NEED TO FIND ROOM ASAP

Sorry don't know of any rooms going, so can't help you from that angle but just from reading this forum over the years, I can't recommend highly enough getting a decent written agreement and nailing down how you pay your deposit.

There have been literally dozens of people kicking off first posts here who have been shafted by dodgy WGs and landlords who have come here for advice.

Have a bit of a shufti round past threads - forewarned is forearmed, as they say. Good luck!

No probs and thank you. I'll be sure to double check everything. Some of the rooms I'm looking at are sub-lets. Should I be extra cautious?

Re: Intern moving to Zurich NEED TO FIND ROOM ASAP

Have you gone through more conventional sites like comparis / immoscout24 etc?

Also, have you tried to expand your search to other areas?

I know you can't view but I would highly recommend that you at least Skype / FaceTime so you can get a feel for the people you will be sharing with plus the place.

Good luck with the search...

Re: Intern moving to Zurich NEED TO FIND ROOM ASAP

Hi all!

Thank you for all your help. Pleased to say that I've successfully located a couple of rooms, however, they're a bit far.

If anybody knows of a room that is available in Districts 2, 3 or 4 please let me know.

Thanks

I’m not sure of the location, but you could check out this thread:

https://www.englishforum.ch/housing-...ying-rent.html

fabulous may be needing a new tenant soon. You could maybe have your own floor and with minimal rent.

If it would be available from the 10th of March and it's in Zurich not too far from work I would genuinely be interested.

Re: Intern moving to Zurich NEED TO FIND ROOM ASAP

Do a furnished let for a month and look around. Your company should help you with that. Or long term Airbnb.

Your company should help you with that.

Probably not for an internship. But you can ask if they know of something
