Starting today, StudentsHostStudents is officially online.
Finding affordable accommodation in Zurich can be challenging for foreign students who would like to participate in a conference at UZH or ETH.
StudentsHostStudents is a new platform that allows local students to offer visiting students a place to sleep for the duration of their conference.
Originally part of the CHLING8-conference in 2014, the system was rewritten from scratch to make it independent of any specific conference and restrict the hosts to people from UZH or ETH. The idea was to offer this for any future conferences, linguistic or not.
If you want to offer a place to sleep, you need to have a university account (either UZH or ETH).
