The FMEL provides housing options on and around the Lausanne campus. More than 2,680 furnished rooms are available. FMEL owns and operates rooms, studios and flats for students of the University of Lausanne, EPFL and HES Vaud.

We are pleased to inform you that we are opening the Vortex in 2020. Based on the campus, the Vortex will considerably increase our availability in offering 828 rooms and studios. We shall post this accommodation on our reservation portal during the first half of June. Rental dates will be for the Autumn semester depending on the lifting of confinement and social distancing measures.

Zenith will no longer be part of the FMEL housing offer from August 2020. Tenants will be relocated to other houses or residences of their choice. Prices of rooms will vary depending on choice. Contact the Zenith house administrator to change residence from 1 August. Kindly do not do this via the portal.







A few rooms are currently available for rent, some with the lease starting immediately.

For students enrolled at HEIG-VD in Yverdon, several rooms are still available at Residence Staehli.

Bookings can be made at any time on the web portal. In order to finalize your reservation, please proceed with the payment of the security deposit without delay.

Make the FMEL your home - a friendly, comfortable, and stimulating place to live.
