3000 CHF Is it enough ?

Hello everybody !!!!!


Hey i'm going to live in Zurich for 6 months. I work as an intern for IBM Zurich research lab. They are paying me like 3000 CHF/month. Is it enough for me to live there ?

Thanks for your attention

For an student/intern it's enough.

You can rent a comfy enough room/studio for around 1000.-, 1500.- to spend on food/transportation/basics, 500 for leisure activities.

I lived with 2500 bruto, ( net was something near 2100 ) when I was an student here, you don't get any luxury but it is good enough and in addition you'd not have enough money to get distracted so you can concentrate on the studies/internship

Hello,
I think that would be more than enough. I work in Zurich, been for more than last 6 months, stay in a 1 BHk apartment in Seebach and even my expenses won't cross more than 2000 chf /month. with you being a student and even if you are below 25 plus a student you would get very much dsicounted ZVV passes which will reduce the expense futher.. I think you should be able to save atleast 500 CHF a month of your stay here. Try for shared accomodations which would be available for students... best of luck om zurich

Suman.
