The University of Lausanne does not currently have a hall of residence on campus. However, it works closely with the Fondation Maisons pour Etudiants Lausanne (FMEL), which welcomes over 2,500 students at various locations, mainly within the Lausanne urban area. Since the accommodation situation in Lausanne and the surrounding area is very tight, the halls of residence run by FMEL should be your preferred option. However, since FMEL does not currently have enough supply to meet demand, it is essential to consider other options on the private rental market at the same time.


The University of Lausanne and the Ecole polytechnique fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) run a joint accommodation database reserved for their students. Advertisements are published by individuals who want to let their accommodation or are looking for another tenant to share with.


Finally, there are furnished studios as well as other furnished residences options aimed at students and run by private companies or associations.
