Housing in Lausanne


I am a moving to Lausanne for 10 months (from mid-August 2014 to June 2015) to work at EPFL as a research fellow. I cannot obtain student housing through the university as I am not registered to take courses or receive credit for my research. I am having a bit of trouble finding housing. I would like to rent a furnished apartment with a private shower/WC and preferably within 30 min (public transit) of the university. Does anyone have advice on how to find housing? Thank you!

Can I assume you've already dug through the University website:
As the site says, do not be too concerned about being right in the neighborhood as public transportation is excellent. When you find a place of interest, you can research the transit options and travel times.
There are other websites for finding apartments in Lausanne if you google it.

Google Maps can help you find bus lines to EPFL, before you even move on to local web sites. Here's a transit map.
