The FMEL is now fully booked apart from some possible last minute cancellations. We thank you for your interest and are sorry that we cannot house more students. We now advise you to look for other solutions. Useful tips and links are on the websites of UNIL and EPFL.

Next year we shall open Vortex, on the campus with 829 rooms and studios so there will be increased availability at FMEL. We shall post this accommodation on our reservation portal in spring of 2020. Precise dates will be announced early next year. Rentals at Vortex will be from mid-August 2020.

Thank you for your interest in the FMEL and for your patience.


The available housing will be visible on the portal throughout the year, as current residents cancel their lease. A large number of housing will be available in summer because during this period, the majority of students finish their stay at the FMEL. New rental dates will be added in the coming weeks. Book now

Most of the housing for September will be available in July, our availabilities for the Autumn semester will be visible on our portal this summer. This summer, the online booking applies to our EASY leases only, for a rental period of 3 ½ months minimum. There will therefore be no possibility of renting for a shorter period (valid only this summer 2019).

Online booking portal

Since April 30, 2019, the FMEL has launched an online booking system.

By creating a personal profile on the booking portal, you can always check our availabilities and book your accommodation online.

All eligible students have the opportunity to

  • consult directly available housing
  • select the object of your choice from several residences
  • sort the accommodations according to your criteria: price, type of accommodation, location, bed size
  • automatically receive contractual rental documents

Here are some benefits you will have:

  • Simplified rents payments
  • No need for guarantor, criminal record check or other official documents
  • Presence of a house manager on site
  • Lease on the 1st and 16th of each month (minimum duration 3 ½ months - max 5 years)
  • Room for disable access and parking spaces on request

In a few steps, you can have confirmation of your reservation and the guarantee of accommodation without waiting time.

Step one: create an online profile (with the student's private email address)

Second step: select the start date of the lease

Third step: choice of residence and housing

Step Four: downloading documents

  1. the identity card is required immediately
  2.  registration documents at EPFL or UNIL (must be provided within 60 days of the lease start date)
  3. Scholarship students (deadline 30 days after the beginning of the lease)

The last step - which will make the reservation definitive - will be the payment of the guarantee deposit.

If you have any questions, you can contact us:

Looking forward to seeing you soon on our online booking portal!
