Pretty good.
Could've been better, but didn't lessen the overall experience.
Disappointing.

Type of housing: Apartment/House
Arranged by: Independently - My choice
If returning, I would choose: A room exchange
Why? To meet more people and to get into a social group faster.
Personal comments:
As I looked for it myself I cannot really judge on the FHBB´s facilities. However, knowing Switzerland a bit, it should be very much ok.

KEY:
Amazing! Hardly had time to study.
Plenty to do when I had the time.

Travel
Overall
Describe host city: Students equally interact with the local and student community
Activities: Takes place mostly outside the university/student environment
Nightlife, Travel: Takes place both within and outside of the university/student environment
Personal comments:
Cross the border to Germany and France and check out Mulhouse and Lörrach. Especially Lörrach is rather surprising having only a few but very good clubs with decent atmospheres, cheaper drinks than in Switzerland, playing music of all styles, mixed people... something for everybody.

Language of instruction: German
Was learning German a key decision factor?
No, it wasn't.
Personal comments:
Fine and funny... ;) Being a native German speaker I found Swiss German rather funny in the beginning but got used to it quickly. They use a lot of words that "German" does not use anymore. It was really interesting. When you are into languages, you´ll appreciate it!!
