Student residences

Year-Long Students

Year-long students live in international dorms in Geneva in the Centre Universitaire Protestant, which enables them to integrate fully into the life of the city and University.

Each student has a single room in a suite with kitchen, baths and common space that is shared with six other students. Students find it most economical to buy groceries with the program-provided living stipend, and cook for themselves and with their suitemates. Students have many opportunities to connect with local students, including the popular wintertime University hosted ski trips.

Fall or Spring Semester Students

Fall or spring semester students occupy double rooms, either at Les Berges, a newly renovated landmark building located on the left bank of the Rhône river in central Geneva, or in a cozy women's residence, Home St-Pierre, located in a historic building on the cathedral square of the Vielle Ville (Old Town). In both instances students have access to a shared kitchen and internet access is provided.
