Welcome to FMEL housing portal

Before you book

Please create your profile on our portal in order to submit your housing request.

• Only the tenant's private e-mail address should be used to register (not the one assigned to you by your university or school).

• Your ID or your passport is required during the booking process (document to be scanned and downloaded).

• Once an offer is extended no change of name will be permitted.


The FMEL owns and operates over 3,300 furnished rooms and studios for students of the University of Lausanne, EPFL and HES Vaud on and around the Lausanne campus.

It is not possible to rent a whole flatshare together with friends. FMEL rents only individual accommodation.


Enrolment obligatory

To be eligible for a room at the FMEL, a university enrolment certificate or proof of registration is necessary. This document must be uploaded once you have been allocated a room and an offer has been sent to you.

If your lease is officially signed, you will receive a reminder to upload your final registration certificate 2 months after the start of your contract at the latest.

If you are not eligible for a room at the FMEL, your reservation will be deleted. For more information, please see our conditions on fmel.ch.
