Campus Life & Services

The Student Affairs Department has created an informative booklet in your acceptance package called the Pre-Arrival Information. You can download a copy here on the website and we recommend that you read it carefully for the official campus procedures.


Accommodations in Switzerland

If you have requested a special room on your application form and it is available, it will only be reserved for you when the pre-payment of CHF 3,000.00 and the supplementary room fee has been paid.

For more information about the supplementary fees, please see the Tuition Fees.

If you have requested a special room, the Residential Life Department will be informed and you should receive an email confirmation of your room type with the supplementary fee.

Please be advised that standard accommodation is subject to availability. Late applications and late payments may result in an upgrade to special accommodation and the charges associated to this.

For questions concerning a special accommodation, or to specify a roommate preference, please email the Student Affairs Department of your future campus. Please also reply to their emails in a timely manner.


Public Transportation in Switzerland

The Swiss buses, metros, and trains run efficiently and can take you anywhere you want to go! Students can purchase a half-fare card to get half-price on all tickets for bus and train.
For information about the train and bus schedules and prices, please visit the official Swiss website of the SBB/CFF
