USI unfortunately does not have on-campus housing to accommodate all students, who should therefore seek accommodation on their own. Assistance, if required, can be provided by the Housing Service.
Further information on housing is available on the InfoDesk, the portal with all practicalities for the USI community:
- Housing in Lugano / Mendrisio
- USI Home
- Casa dell'Accademia
- Rental listings database
- Student accommodations
- Useful information on Swiss regulations
- Advisory services for tenants
SEMP (ex Erasmus) and other mobility students seeking accommodation for the duration of their study semester in Lugano or in Mendrisio are invited to contact the Housing Service directly by e-mail, for personal advice:
The Housing service manages two Facebook pages to encourage direct contact among students, co-tenancy and sub-letting arrangements and, more generally, the circulation of information regarding available accommodations:
Want to let?
USI organises and regularly updates a database with all sorts of property letting adverts.
Letting agents and private property owners can take advantage of our database by directly posting their adverts by accessing it through the website www.client.alloggi.usi.ch.
The Housing Service reserves the right to turn down any adverts, which for whatever reason, at its discretion, it considers to be unsuitable.
