Um, help: Geneva housing advice?
« on: January 30, 2005, 02:57:48 AM »
Probably off-topic even for off-topic?

I just got offered, on *really* short-notice, an internship at the WHO in Geneva Switzerland-- an awesome opportunity, but in order to take it I need to find housing starting mid-Feb or early March... And, no surprise, all the university /small boarding operations I've come across are booked solid (plus the hostel has a 6-day stay limit)... So I know this is a long shot, but at this point I can use any help I can get!!-- Anyone happen to have connections in Geneva, or have experience looking for housing there?

Thanks!

I live in the German-speaking part of Switzerland, which I know doesn't help you that much, but I'd advise you to just show up.  You won't have trouble finding a place.  Geneva has a huge turn over of people doing exactly the sort of thing that you're looking at.  You'll have no trouble finding a ex-pat community who will find you a place to stay.
