Webster Geneva offers off-campus housing at two locations that are within 10 kilometers
of campus. In total, we can accommodate 130 students.
The primary location is Les Berges du Rhône, which is situated in the city of Geneva in the neighborhood of La Jonction and can house 118 students—mostly Webster upper classmen, students from other Webster campuses studying abroad in Geneva as well as some students in study abroad programs from other U.S. universities. There are different living arrangement possibilities at les Berges du Rhône: single studios, shared bedrooms and suites. We also offer housing at the Auberge Lion d’Or in the town of Versoix, which is located on the shores of Lake Geneva. This residence is often reserved for “Global Program” students and occasionally for visiting faculty members.
Both housing locations offer a range of common advantages and amenities: free wireless internet access; laundry facilities on the premises; practical public transportation (train and bus); proximity to shops, supermarkets, cafés and restaurants; nearby nature walks (lake, river and countryside).
While the two off-campus housing options offer much in common, there a few differences worth noting between living at les Berges du Rhône and at the Lion d’Or. The principal difference are the architectural size of the two buildings and their location. Les Berges du Rhône building is a converted industrial, six-floor high building located on river, but still within Geneva city limits. The neighborhood is mostly residential and has an urban feel to it. The Lion d’Or is a 150 year old inn that now rents out independent studios. It is located on the main road that runs through Versoix, a small city with fewer than 14,000 inhabitants. The neighborhood can be described as cozy and picturesque.
