New master student is looking for a shared apartment in Lausanne

Hello there,

My name is Alexandra, I'm from Moscow, Russia. I've been accepted to the master programme in EPFL and I'm going to study there from the beginning of September, 2012. Up to day I can't find any available flat or room in Lausanne and it's really scares me because I won't get the visa permission for studying without a proof for renting accommodation in Lausanne.
Does anyone has the same problem with finding a place to live in Lausanne? Can anybody advise me where to find a flatmate?
I'd be very greatful for any help!

I think you should contact you Lab at EPFL. They'll help to find a one. I'm also coming to EPFL for my summer internship in July. They found a place for me.

Hi. I am a student and interested in going to EPFL but i only know English. Is there academics studies in English or are they all in french. Please reply if you can.

Try these sites:
http://www.easywg.ch/?l=1
http://www.sous-louer.ch/
http://www.anibis.ch/fr/default.aspx (online classifieds)

Try to translate the last two sites from French, or get someone who can read French to help you.

But I think the easiest and most successful method may be to contact the EPFL housing office to help you.

Good luck!

Hi! The academics studies on master programmes in EPFL are mostly in English. You should better search on EPFL official website which programme matches your education.
