Moving to Lausanne

Hi,

My name is Adrian and I am moving to Lausanne this September as I am starting my Master studies in Computer Science at EPFL. How is Lausanne in general and EPFL in particular, especially for a student?

My greatest concern so far is that I am not able to find accommodation. I have applied for all the student halls since March, but no luck. I also searched online and contacted a lot of persons renting, but only have been contacted back by a scammer (he wanted money sent via Western Union, sent me a fake contract, bad English and probably no French/German etc.). Any tips regarding this, as I seem to be doing it wrong? Do I have any chances of finding anything before I arrive in Lausanne?

Re: Moving to Lausanne

Welcome to the Forum.

This is not the Housing Forum. If adrianp want to know more about the renting situation, he'll (I hope) check out Housing in General and the Property Sections.
