The housing system in Switzerland is slightly different from what you might be used to in your home country: Swiss universities do not usually have on-campus housing. Instead, students often organize themselves in flat-sharing communities (“WG” or “Wohngemeinschaft”), with several people renting a flat together and sharing the rent. For new incoming foreign students with no acquaintances in Zurich, it can be difficult to find a flat to share. it is best to start looking as soon as possible before the start of the semester.
Below are some websites that could help you find the correct accommodation for you.
