During your first-year you will be accommodated on campus in the Living and Learning Center, located in a tranquil park setting only a short walk from Lake Leman and the suburban town of Bellevue. Here, you will have easy access to classes, university facilities, transportation services and enjoy a spectacular view of the Swiss Alps and Mt. Blanc. This residence features fully furnished single and double bedroom studios overlooking the campus or the lake.
Webster University stands out as one of the very few universities that has its own network of residential campuses in cities on four continents and has a unified academic experience in all locations. Students based in Geneva, enrolled in a Bachelor’s or Master’s program, can easily opt to spend a semester, or a year, on an other Webster campus.
Our Residential Life Office will assist you during your transition to campus and as you move into our student residences, providing you with comprehensive support in matters related to your visa and insurance, and offering information regarding medical providers and other services.
Our residential campus is located in a spacious, park-like setting within sight of Lake Geneva and the Alps. On campus, you will discover well-equipped classrooms, several computer labs, a cafeteria and offices to serve your student needs. In addition, the residence hall includes a student lounge with snack bar and game area, plus a large fitness room.
The main activity of football club is meeting up every Saturday to play and have fun in a competitive yet friendly atmosphere. Every once in a while, when we find the opportunity to do so, we participate in a tournament, or organize a game with another club, but the most important tournament we enter is the Webster European Cup. We pick players for the teams in the tournaments we play based on a combination of how serious they are on Saturday training and of course their ability to play football. Most of all, the football club is more like a family than only a team.
Webster students engage fully in extra-curricular campus life. Current club opportunities include Theater, Music, Publications, Debate, Football and Basketball. You can join an existing club, or start a new activity with the support of the Student Government Association and the Director of Student Services.
Webster University is accredited by The Higher Learning Commission and is a member of the North Central Association.
