Lausanne Homes for Students Foundation (FMEL)
The Fondation Maisons pour Etudiants – Lausanne (FMEL) faces great demand from the UNIL-EPFL university community.
FMEL houses are open to students normally registered at these two institutions. Staff, academic guests, doctoral students and students on placement are not permitted to live in the Foundation’s houses.
In view of the difficulties encountered by students seeking accommodation, priorities proposed by the Universities and ratified by the Board of the Foundation have been established.
These entail rooms being allocated preferentially to students who are beginning their studies at the UNIL or the EPFL whose homes are too far from the campus.
It should be noted that accommodation is guaranteed to certain students coming from institutions that maintain partnerships or specific reciprocal arrangements with the universities. Such students will be advised personally.
Until further notice, the duration of leases may not exceed two semesters. These are emergency solidarity measures that will be lifted as soon as a sufficient quantity of new accommodation has become available.
Les Estudiantines (NOTE: minimum stay 6 months)
The housing cooperative Les Estudiantines consists of four buildings containing 15 apartments each with 2.5 to 4.5 rooms, 110 studios and 176 rooms. To apply or for more information, visit the website www.les-estudiantines.ch
Planète Bleue attaches much importance to welcoming foreign students. It cares for students from far abroad, more particularly from third world countries and countries from the eastern part of Europe. However it must ensure a good balance between Swiss, European and non-European students. Confessional adherences cannot be a criteria of admission, but it is necessary to people who wish to live at Planète Bleue to accept belonging to a multicultural community and to take an interest in a project of responsible communal life.
Generally, the lengh of stay is limited to 2 years.
