Accommodation is not included in this program. You can source your own accommodation, or through GBS' assistance.

When applying for accommodation at GBS, you will have the possibility to share a room with other GBS student(s) in a flat, or even a studio if we are informed sufficiently in advance. The kitchen, bathroom, and toilet will be shared by all of the occupants (2 to 6 students).

For GBS accommodation, only after being admitted, you must send a request to the accommodation division.

It is also common for students to opt for Host Family accommodation. This is a network of families in Geneva who house one or more students and provide food. This is a fantastic option for newcomers as they provide reassurance to the parents that they will be well looked after, and the additional guarantee of rapidly learning French!

Beds, pillow, a blanket and mattresses are provided by the school. In winter, it can get quite cold in Geneva, i.e. minus 5 degrees and every apartment benefits from wireless internet access free of charge, as well a phone line.
