Where to stay...

Unfortunately, we do not currently have any financial resources to cover accommodation or travel expenses. At the moment, we are endeavoring to establish a fund to support a portion of the travel and expenses for those who need it, as Switzerland is indeed an expensive country.

Additionally, we are arranging shared accommodations in dormitory-style rooms, which will be free for all students (BA, MA, or PhD). If you are interested please mail to:
