Campuses

The Geneva campus of UBIS is located in one place, within the city center and very near to the United Nations in Geneva, headquarters of banks, corporations and international organizations such as the WTO and the Global Fund. The Campus is a 3 min walk from Lake Leman and a 2 min walk from the Botanical Gardens of Geneva.

Classrooms are fully equipped, have natural and artificial light and are large and comfortable. There is strong internet connection, a student lounge, a small library and access to a kitchen. Small cafes, kiosks, supermarkets and restaurants are all very close to the campus.

Student lifestyle

No need for on campus cultural clubs because Geneva offers so much—e.g., a wide choice of French and English language cultural activities (broadcast, print and online media and live performances).

Information about events is available from Geneva Tourism or local Tourist Offices and local newspapers. Tribune de Genève', ‘Le Temps' and ‘Le Matin' publish weekly supplements with details of local events and entertainment. Geneva has over 40 museums, art centres and foundations and the highest per capita number of cinemas in Europe (e.g.,The Orange Cinema (Cinélac), City cinemas). Geneva has an active music and theatre scene (35 stages). Genève Agenda, RegArt and the Tribune de Genève list upcoming theatre events.

Accommodation

UBIS student services team helps students to book a shared or single room in Student Residences in Geneva (separately located for female and male students). By student request we can provide numbers of agencies for relocation services or to search for a room in a private apartment. Housing prices in Geneva are from 700 to 1000 ChF per person monthly. Geneva has excellent public transportation and safe biking. We try to find living facilities in walking distance to campus.
