Private Rental Requirements
Rental agencies in Switzerland require all persons who rent an apartment to make a security deposit in advance, equaling three month’s rent. Each month’s rent must be paid at the beginning of the month, within the first five days. At the end of the leasing period, the security deposit is returned if there has been no apartment damage.
Students under the age of 21 who wish to rent an apartment may do so with a parent or guardian's signature on the lease. Charges for electricity and telephone are not included in these estimates. Leases, payment of leases, deposits, etc., fall entirely under the student's responsibility and parents or guardians.
