USI unfortunately does not have on-campus housing to accommodate all students, who should therefore seek accommodation on their own.

Further information on housing is available on the InfoDesk, the portal with all practicalities for the USI community:


Facebook pages

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 an online 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 https://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.
