Travel Forums Europe Six Week Stay in Geneva

lisak has indicated that this thread is about Switzerland

I will be living in Geneva for six weeks starting in February. What are some resources to find open housing and/or short term housing? Any websites or companies that you can suggest would be much appreciated!
Thank you!

Unfortunately, housing in Geneva is rare and expensive. I can recommend the following page: there are some rooms mentioned (some in French)

Otherwise I would check the notice board of the university they have some rooms published (most of the advertising is in french)


hope this was any help

Thanks aleah! Are flat shares common and easy to arrange?
I am leaving the US to travel around Europe a bit at the end of January and am getting worried because I have to have something arranged in Geneva when I arrive. I know how expensive it is, and am hoping to get something reasonable. What is typical rent for a studio or a room in a flat?

Do you know of any agencies that I could talk with who could help with this? Would the university center be able to help at all??

As I said, Geneva can be very hard...I did look quiet a while...

there is another link:

or just enter "housing geneva" in a search machine, there you will find many links

If you are enrolled in the university they might help you, otherwise I don't think so.

In Geneva, only 0.1% of all appartments are empty...

good luck with your search
