Residence registration .staying with friend

Hello,

I will be arriving at Bern next week. For 15 to 20 days I will be staying with my friend in her house. She is a swiss citizen. There is no rental contract with me for this duration. However I have one from 1st Sep for a long term at a different location. Can you tell me will I be able to register with the municipality without any problem? I am not sure what document I can produce to confirm my stay initially. Will a written letter from my friend be enough? Please let me know the procedure n checklist required in this context.
Many thanks!!

Most likely you already will have to change adres during the procedure, can you not just wait a few days with applying and use the new adres right away? (as in why would you already need to register right away?)

I would prefer to give my new address right away. But can anyone confirm if this is possible? I read that it is mandatory to register my residence before taking up my work at uni. If I wait to provide my new address then it might clash with my joining at the university.

Best bet would be to go to the Gemeinde with the future rental contract already signed showing that you'll have a permanent address. If they need more information/mailing address then give your friends address.

If you show up in person, you'll find that sometimes the Gemeinde can be surprisingly human.
