Living in student dorms allows you to meet new people in a structured living environment without the stress of rental agencies or household chores. Living with fellow students is great for helping you settle in and adapt to your new lifestyle. EU Montreux has secured a limited number of student accommodations with our partners, all just a 15-minute walk from campus.
Having your own apartment is something that will appeal to you if you enjoy the quiet, like to be alone and don’t want to compromise on personal space. You can choose to get an apartment anywhere in the city without limiting yourself to student dorm availability or location. This type of student accommodation in Montreux is perfect for independent people.
Most apartments are rented through an agency, however renting directly from the owner generally saves tenants a lot of money in agency fees. An important aspect of housing in Montreux is the concept of sharing. Many apartments and studios don’t have a private washer or dryer, instead they are put at the disposal of all residents in the building.
Sharing an apartment is a popular concept in Montreux and a lot cheaper than living on your own. Shared housing is a flexible option and with international roommates, you will be able to learn other languages in no time however you must be willing to compromise. If you are interested in this option, we highly recommend you arrive in Montreux before you commence your studies in order to meet potential roommates and landlords personally. Please contact the student affairs officer on campus and they can pair you with another student who is also in search of a shared apartment.
