Accommodations

Study abroad students typically live in the "Les Berges du Rhone" in the center of Geneva. The residence “Les Berges du Rhône” is a “V” shaped edifice, located on the banks of the river Rhone and facing the ‘Pont de Sous-Terre’. The bridge connects the communes of ‘Junction’ and ‘St. Jean’ in the centre of Geneva. Its large picture windows afford lots of light. Les Berges accommodates 118 students. Other accommodations include the Living and Learning Center, located on the Webster, Geneva campus, where classes are held but this residence primarily houses full-degree seeking students.

Destination

Geneva and the surrounding countryside bring added dimensions to your Webster education. Given the presence of the United Nations and other major international organizations, many important international businesses and the largest private banking center in the world, Webster students have the opportunity to take advantage of the resources offered by these institutions to augment classroom learning. And when it comes to recreation, whether skiing, hiking, climbing, or cycling, the Alps offer some of the best sporting terrain in the world, and they are right at your doorstep! It may not have the size or non-stop action of London and Paris, but this small city packs an enormous punch. It’s a major trade and finance hub, home to the World Trade Organization and headquarters to a large number of multinational corporations, including Procter & Gamble and Hewlett Packard. Some 350 trading companies operate in Geneva, making it second only to London in Europe. They are supported by a financial and business infrastructure that includes banks, insurance companies, law firms, and fiduciaries.
