Housing and Accommodation in Switzerland

The Office of Student Affairs assists in placing students in housing appropriate to their needs.

There are many apartments in the Vevey, La Tour-de-Peilz, and Montreux area. If you wish for the Office of Student Affairs to help you find an apartment suitable for your needs, please send your request to info(at)agsb.ch. Please understand that the school policy does not dictate an obligation, either to the student or the school, to find housing. That is, any efforts made by the school to facilitate the finding of adequate housing is strictly on an individual student basis and will be handled within the limits of the school’s ability providing our best effort. The individual studio can be rented starting at CHF 1’200 and for apartment sharing budget for CHF 700 per person. Rental agencies in Switzerland require all persons who rent an apartment to place in an escrow account, three months rent in advance as a security deposit. In addition, each month’s rent must be paid at the beginning of the month, that is, within the first ten days. At the end of the leasing period, the security deposit is returned if there has been no damage to the apartment. Students under 21 years of age who wish to rent an apartment may do so with the signature of a parent or guardian on the lease. Charges for electricity and telephone are not included in these estimates. Leases, payment of rents, deposits, etc., are strictly the responsibility of students and their parents or guardians.

All students who are entering AGSB for their first term should plan to arrive in La Tour-de-Peilz at least five days prior to Registration to allow enough time for the student to become settled in the area before the beginning of classes.
