Welcome to the Accommodation Service website of the University of Lausanne

Lausanne is a conurbation of 300,000 inhabitants. Despite its size it does not have a university campus and it is up to each individual to find somewhere to live.

Please note that the housing situation in the region is particularly difficult and the UNIL cannot guarantee accommodation to all of its students. Nevertheless it does everything in its power to find accommodation where possible.

There are several options in the search for accommodation:

  2. If you don't have access to our database, you can ask for our lists of rooms at (pre-registered students and Erasmus students only)*

    Spring semester: lists available from the 1st of December
    Autumn semester: lists available from the 1st of June
  3. University halls of residence
  4. Property managers/agents in Lausanne
  5. Studios
  6. For disable students, a limited number of appropriate housing solutions are available. For more information, please get in touch with the University’s Accommodation Service as soon as possible.
