Social support, listening, guidance



UNIL's social consultations offer students a confidential place to discuss their concerns and, with the support of social advisers, look for concrete, practical solutions.

Examples include:

  • The administrative procedures involved in being a student can be considerable (health insurance, AVS, cantonal grants, etc.), and you need some clarification;
  • You are having difficulty managing your budget;
  • You are going through a change in your personal situation and need advice and guidance: moving out, change in family composition, etc. ;
  • You are an exchange student and you're having trouble understanding Swiss culture and are experiencing isolation, potential discomfort and difficulties integrating.

Consultations by appointment, free of charge and confidential, in French or English.

Depending on their needs, students may be referred to the psychotherapeutic consultation.

To request an appointment, please send an email to: with "social support" in the subject line.
