We know that finding accommodation in Lausanne can sometimes be difficult and we hope that these few tips will help you!

As a starting point we adivise you to look for student residences, there are many and prices range from 500 to 1200 chf a month. While systems like FMEL require you to apply exactly 2 months before and are based on a mixture of luck and speed, other residences are usually based on applications and are first come first served. We advise you to prepare your document as soon as possible and try to apply to most of them to assure you of a place fitting your desires
