International Students

Accommodation

The accommodation of the participants must be organized individually. Housing for students is offered by different institutions that are connected with the University, but operate independently (the tuition fee does not cover living costs).

Since the demand on housing is high, it is important to start looking for accommodation in good time and to explore every possible avenue.

The University of Zurich has an office for international students which provides the necessary information and help.
