Accommodation, housing and food

The tradition of home-based student living with local French-speaking families dates back to the founding of the NJC. Family experiences have consistently proven to be one of the most transformative and desirable aspects of studying abroad.

Finding themselves in a Swiss family, students integrate into culture and everyday life, gradually learn French, and become more independent. Families are assigned at the end of the study tour: the school will select the appropriate option based on the individuality and needs of each student. Most families accept students for several years, many for decades.

Accommodation options range from apartments in the city center to country houses in picturesque villages on the outskirts of Neuchâtel. It is possible to live in a boarding house one by one or with a classmate in NJC: getting to school together by train, tram or bus will become part of a new, independent life.
