Please note that there are two types of contracts:

  • Contract A: Cheaper, but cannot be terminated before the mentioned end date (31 January / 31 July)
  • Contract B: Slightly more expensive, but may be terminated at the end of each month unless a departure date is selected when booking the accommodation. Please note: selecting a departure date in the search function on the studentlodge website will automatically define this date as end date of the contract. The contract cannot be cancelled before this date. To keep full flexibility, we suggest searching without selecting a departure date.

If you are not sure, when you will be leaving Switzerland, we strongly suggest a B contract without departure date.
