Brit student studying in Lausanne

Hi,
I'm moving to Lausanne in August. I'll be studying at UNIL as part of the Erasmus scheme and I'll be in Switzerland until February, when I start the Spanish leg of the year abroad in Cuba.

I've never been to Switzerland so I'm quite excited. I've made quite a few friends from Geneva that study at my English uni. And I lived in a small student house, and my only housemate was also from Geneva! She's possibly transferring to UNIL so at least I might have a friend around!

I've heard that the housing situation can be very difficult, but I'm hoping to maybe find something in Renens or somewhere. I'll arrive in Lausanne in around mid aug to start looking for a place.

Re: Brit student studying in Lausanne

Welcome to Lausanne!

I would recommend you a visit before August if you can, by then most of the appartments will be taken; if you go in July it should be easier to find something.

A good place to check for housing ads is www.anibis.ch, they update it very often (and don't waste you time trying to answer anything that is older than a week, it will be taken for sure)

Good luck!
Jose

He is right- accom can be devilishly difficult to find, so the earlier the better.
Welcome- Lausanne is a great town for students and such a beautiful spot with both town, mountains and the lake.

Hello and welcome to the EF.

Start applying for places now, it can take you a few months to succeed. Good luck with relocating. Both Geneva and Lausanne are lovely in this weather..

Thanks for the welcome! Fortunately I've found a room in Renens, not far from the uni or metro and I move in next weekend.
