Accommodation options

The Graduate Institute offers excellent housing options in the heart of international Geneva. We are pleased to announce that, as of January 2021*, the Institute will be able to offer accommodation to all its students.

In addition to the current Edgar and Danièle de Picciotto Student House, the Institute is building a new student residence, the Grand Morillon Student House, that will open on 4 January 2021.

Living in our student residences will allow you to integrate into a supportive community and will help you get the most out of your academic experience.

*Completion date subject to change due to changes in construction schedule and COVID-19 related matters.

Grand Morillon Student House

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 House. 

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. 


A stone's throw from the Maison de la paix, the Edgar and Danièle de Picciotto Student House, 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.
