Rooms for rent in Switzerland

With its clean, fresh air and stunning panoramic views, it’s little wonder that Switzerland is high on the wish-list for those who yearn to see more of the world.
Switzerland has a population of approximately 8.3 million, with almost a quarter of its residents coming from overseas. This eclectic mix is due in part to the skilled industries which attract international workers from all over the world. Biotechnology, pharmaceuticals, banking, insurance and microtechnology are particularly prominent and there are numerous coliving areas to help workers settle quickly.

When not working, there are plenty of things to do in Switzerland. The country is famous for its ski slopes and there’s no fewer than 48 peaks of 4000m or higher, more than any other European nation.
As well as mountains, Switzerland has an abundance of lakes, with 1500 located within the borders. This means that no matter where you are in the country, you’ll never be further than 16km from a lake.

Museums form a big part of Swiss life, and there’s a broad range of art, historical and technical museums to choose from. Almost three quarters of the population visit at least one museum every year.
Throughout the year, there’s a calendar of carnivals and markets which embrace the different cultures which contribute to Swiss life. Large events such as the Montreux Jazz Festival and Christmas markets (known as Weihnachtsmarkt) combine with quirkier fairs such as the Cheese Festival and are popular with residents and tourists alike.

Finding affordable communal living in Switzerland

Finding affordable housing in Switzerland can be tough, especially in cities with high rent prices. One solution that many people turn to is communal living with shared spaces and roommates. This can be a cost-effective way to have a private room while still being able to afford rent in a desirable location. There are a few different options for finding a shared living arrangement in Switzerland. One option is to look for a private room for rent in a coliving home. This can be a good option for people who want some privacy, but still want to be part of a community. Another option is to look for a shared room, where you'll be sharing a bedroom with one or more roommates. This can be more affordable, as you'll only be responsible for paying for your own bed. The downside is that you'll have less privacy, as you'll be sharing a bedroom with others. You can find both accommodation options on Coliving.com. We can help you find a compatible roommate based on your preferences and lifestyle. Some hosts do background checks and eviction history checks to ensure that the roommates you're living with are trustworthy individuals. When looking for a shared living arrangement, it's important to do your due diligence and make sure that you're comfortable with the living arrangement and the people you'll be living with.

What is coliving?

When compared to dorms, coliving is much more attractive, since it's relatively inexpensive, all-inclusive and allows you to rent a furnished room with an individual lease. Coliving is perfect for students, digital nomads, remote workers, young professionals, interns and people in general who relocate to a new city for work.
