Location, Housing, and Student Life

Geneva, Switzerland
Geneva is the historic center of international cooperation and is home to the United Nations, over 250 non-governmental organizations, numerous multi-national corporations, and a vibrant financial and trading center. When it comes to recreation, the Alps and the Lake Geneva region offer some of the best sporting terrains in the world – right at your doorstep. Moreover, Geneva is situated in the heart of Europe so it is easy to immerse yourself in the culture of other European cities, all accessible in less than two hours by plane.

All study abroad students are required to live in campus-provided housing and will be assigned to either Les Berges du Rhône, in central Geneva, or in the Living and Learning Center (LLC) on campus.

As the off-campus residence, Les Berges sits in a prime location within the city. The diverse and lively neighborhood makes it easy for students to discover and enjoy all that an international city like Geneva has to offer – many shops, markets, banks, cafes, and restaurants are all within walking distance. Les Berges is well serviced by public transportation and is only 25 minutes from campus by tram and train.

The Living and Learning Center is Webster Geneva's on-campus residence and students living here have access 24/7 to on-site laundry facilities, a fitness room, and a student lounge. Located in the residential lakeside community of Bellevue, students have access to several restaurants, a pharmacy, grocery shops, and a bank only a short walk away. The centre of Geneva is easily accessible by public transportation (8 to 12-minute direct train ride).

Double occupancy rooms are available at both locations. Single occupancy rooms are only available at the LLC. Each student will have their own bed (with linens), desk, and wardrobe. All apartments include a shared kitchen and bath. Wireless internet access is available throughout.

Assistance Residence Coordinators live on the premises and are available to help students manage and enjoy their experience in Geneva. Both locations are secure with security cameras and an overnight security guard. Students at Les Berges use key badges in order to access the building and their room. Students at the LLC have a code to get into the building a key card to access their room.
