Arriving in Geneva for your exchange, you want to stack all the odds in your favor for getting to know your way around or settling in at best?

You don’t really know to whom you can turn for advice once arrived (whether about your shopping, the closest supermaket from home or the place you can find the cheapest beer in the city)?

You don’t like the idea of discovering the city through a dull guide book and would prefer to have a person in flesh and blood revealing to you the mysteries of the city of Calvin?

Join the Buddy System and find a local student to help and assist you here in Geneva!
Take your chance of contacting local students even before arriving!

Register here!

(Careful, this form doesn't work on cellphones)

Once registered we will match you with a local contact who can introduce you to Geneva‘s secrets, answer questions you might ask yourself, in short just someone who can be a potential first friend, with whom you can go out after school.

Also we will organise a Buddy Rally at the beginning of the semester, an event especially created for Erasmus-students and their Buddies to discover Geneva and its sights together and to get to know each other and other students.

Matching begins mid-August and happens over time, because new people register continuously. So please be patient with us ;)

If you have any problems or questions, please contact us via e-mail:
