Karen
University of York, York, United Kingdom
Literature, Undergraduate, SOCRATES
UniversitÚ de Lausanne
4.5/5
Housing
Type of housing: Off campus student accomodation
Arranged by: Home university
If returning, I would choose: A room exchange
Why?
The accomodation provided for through the SOCRATES exchange was in the international student house. While this was very social and enjoyable, I would have hoped to have more opportunities to practise my French on a day to day basis. Like many international scenarios, English was the universal language in the international student accomodation and I would have preferred to stay somewhere more francophonic.

The appearance of the apartment block was very off-putting since, from the outside, it appeared to resemble a prison. However, it was very friendly and the shared facilities meant that we interacted more frequently than other student households also provided by the university. I made a number of close and lasting friendships with the people who lived on my corridor.

The family's house was smack dab in the center of town. Unfortunately, my university friends lived far from me. The university converted lakeside housing for athletes of the sports facilities across the street into housing for students.

My friends had mixed feelings about the halls of residence. Some were good (Cedres) others were far away and not very quiet. Try one of the better ones or look for your own accomodation - there are always people looking for flatmates.

3.5/5
Housing
Type of housing: Apartment, then with family.
Arranged by: Independently - My choice
If returning, I would choose: With a family
Why?
The overall experience of living with a Swiss family enabled me to learn a great deal about the Swiss way of life. I also had the opportunity to speak French at home as well as at University, as the family could not speak English.

Accommodation provided by the University was not acceptable, as the building was very dark and run down, and I was worried about my personal safety. My first room was too expensive at 850 CHF per month, without the cost of meals or a kitchen to cook my own meals in! However I have thoroughly enjoyed living with the Swiss family.
