Accommodation options

The Graduate Institute offers excellent housing options in the heart of International Geneva; The Grand Morillon Student Residence  and the Edgar and Danièle De Picciotto Student House.


Living in our student residences will allow you to integrate into a supportive community and will provide you a fulfilling academic experience.

Grand Morillon Student RESIDENCE


Designed by renowned architect Kengo Kuma, the new residence will add 678 beds to the existing 231 in the Edgar and Danièle de Picciotto Student Residence. 

Located on a hillside in Petit-Saconnex, the residence is just a few minutes’ walk, or short bus ride (bus number 5), from Maison de la paix and enjoys magnificent views towards Lake Geneva and Mont Blanc. 

EDGAR AND DANIÈLE DE PICCIOTTO STUDENT Residence


A stone's throw from the Maison de la paix, the Edgar and Danièle de Picciotto Student Residence, which opened in 2012, provides 231 beds for Institute students, professors and outside visitors. 

A footbridge connects the Student House with the Maison de la paix, and it is a five-minute walk from both the lakeside and the United Nations headquarters. Tram number 15 stops directly outside the Student House, providing quick and easy connections to the city centre, Cornavin train station, and the United Nations headquarters.
