The universities in Lausanne, UNIL, and Swiss Polytechnic School (EPFL) offer students exceptional premises and infrastructure in the suburbs of the City. However this geographical situation causes members of the University community who work there with heavy schedules go home immediately after work and it is not always easy to create contacts and communicate with others. This sometimes results in a profound loneliness and a strong absence of communal and social life.
Taking this situation into account, the student residence Planète Bleue mainly aims at offering its lodgers the opportunity to live the adventure of a communal experience. The ambition of Planète Bleue is to promote contact with a view to human, cultural and intellectual enrichment.
