When you're not busy studying, you can choose from a wide variety of exciting activities to make the most of your time on campus. Have fun at any of our regularly-planned themed nights, concerts, BBQs, and movie nights or head over to the campus bar and nightclub–the Grotto in Caux and Club Maxx in Leysin. Both campuses are equipped with pool and ping-pong tables, boardgames, as well as video games and virtual reality sets.
Each campus features its very own gym, open exclusively to students seven days a week, from 6 am to 10 pm, where you can workout with a wide selection of equipment. If you prefer to go outside to work out, borrow a bike or a pair of rollerblades. Free or paid fitness classes, such as yoga and Zumba, are available across both campuses.
Enjoy a variety of team sports in off-campus facilities: basketball, football, tennis, squash, and badminton. As a student in Leysin, you also have free access to the swimming pool and ice-rink.
Hit the slopes and take advantage of a student discount. Enjoy a quieter pace in the winter? Put on some snow shoes or cross-country skis and head out to the forest, or enjoy some ice-skating with your friends.
Student Ambassador Forum
Each semester, students elect a committee of peers who represent them to improve the student experience on campus. Fostering a spirit of democratic cooperation among the student body, the committee works together as a mini-company, with each member serving in a different capacity.
Their involvement on campus includes organizing events and parties, promoting student activities on social media, putting together the yearbook, expressing academic concerns to faculty, and supervising school clubs.
Every semester, we offer free excursions to some of Switzerland’s top cities and destinations so you can enjoy all the country has to offer. Whether you’re visiting the capital of Bern, or another sought-after site such as Lucerne, Zurich, or Interlaken, you’ll have many opportunities to explore, shop, dine, and discover Switzerland’s unique culture.
Switzerland also provides year-round opportunities for outdoor activities, such as mountain biking, hiking, swimming, river rafting, sailing, water-skiing, golfing, horseback riding, and paragliding. With nearly 200 winter sports resorts across the country, there are plenty of activities, including skiing, sledding, skating, hockey, and ice climbing to keep you busy in the winter months.
Switzerland also offers an extensive range of cultural experiences. Enjoy world-renowned exhibitions, trade fairs, film festivals, museums, and musical events throughout the year or stroll through the many traditional Christmas, antiques’, and farmers’ markets.
