As you know the housing market in Geneva and the surrounding region is currently very tight. Nor do we anticipate any improvement in the situation in the near future. Patience and perseverance are the watchwords when looking for accommodation.
USPI Geneva is very concerned about the housing shortage and supports all measures to promote housing construction. To help you look for accommodation, USPI Geneva has produced a “how to” leaflet in French or English with advice to make your searches easier.
We also have set up a service via this Internet site whereby your search request for accommodation can be passed on automatically to the companies who are connected. These companies can then respond to your request directly.
In 1996, the Geneva Welcome Center (CAGI) was launched to guide, inform, and help integrate the community of approximately 40’000 international civil servants, and members of diplomatic missions, consulates, and non governmental organizations (including their families), working in the Geneva region. In this context it offers practical assistance, particularly with housing.
