Accommodation & Food
All Summer Course students live on campus. There are several boarding houses in which boys and girls live separately, organized by age. A teacher lives on every floor of each boarding house. The teachers help students settle in and help them make the most of their time.
Rooms are twin or triple and we encourage students to share a room with someone from another nationality. In that way, they get to know a different culture and find a common language.
Rooms are very large and spacious. Many have views over the Lake and the Alps and all are comfortable and modern. Some rooms have private en-suite bathrooms, whilst others share.
All meals are taken together in the dining room, with a choice of menus available. Special dietary needs can be accommodated.
There are excursions every Wednesday. Children may visit the Cailler chocolate factory (yes, they end with tasting sessions!) or the Olympic Museum or Lausanne University for a science workshop. This is followed by a wind-down by the lake for a tasty barbeque and games until sunset.
Saturdays are dedicated to exploring Lausanne - whether you visit the Chaplin museum, the Aquarium or go further afield into Berne.
Sundays are for adventure, depending on the weather. Water sports on the lake, caves in Valorbe, underground salt mines in Bex, the Aquaparc and more - the adrenalin will run high. With lots of evening activities and excursions at the weekend, we're sure you'll have a great time!
