Do I Need Accommodation Proof for Student Visa?

Do I need accommodation proof for Student Visa? Because it's almost impossible to find an accommodation in Geneva online, and I don't really wanna spend 800 franc before even coming there, although I do possess 23.000 CHF

Yes, you do need accommodation for a student visa. I don't think it's possible for you to get a visa without proof of address. You can check on student hostels. I'm sure it's possible to make a reservation but for a fee ofcourse and if you do not get a visa then they return your money back.
It's like that in Bern. Hopefully it's same in Geneva.

Thank you for your answer! So is it enough if I just book a place in booking.com for a month, or do I need an actual contract for a year?

No it isn't enough.

You do need an actual contract. I don't think you have to pay the entire amount for a year because the do pay monthly. But the contract has to be long term.

Hello, I have the same question about the accomodation requirement but in Lausanne. Can I submit to the consulate general my reservation at a student hostel instead of a contract? Also, if a friend is willing to host me for a few months, does this satisfy this particular requirement? My friend is a tenant in an apartment, not student housing. Thank you!
