At the heart of the great movements that forged Europe, even the Roman town of Lousonna attracted visitors with its bustling port. The town’s hotel industry developed naturally, adding a touch of grandeur to Swiss tourism. Historic events, such as the Treaties of Ouchy and Lausanne, and the Reparation Conference further contributed to the renown of Lausanne’s hotel industry in distant places; and Lausanne’s Hotel Management School, the first worldwide, continues to perfect the quality image of this city of studies, conferences, culture, sport and wellbeing, which the Olympic movement has made its capital.


EPFL – Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne

EPFL is one of the two Ecoles Polytechniques fédérales in Switzerland. Like its sister institution, ETHZ, it has three missions: education, research and technology transfer at the highest international level. Associated with several specialised research institutes, the two EPFs form the EPF domain, which is directly dependent on the Federal Department of Home Affairs.

EPFL, in its idyllic location on the shores of Lake Geneva, brings together a campus of more than 10,000 people. By its novel structure, the school stimulates collaboration between students, professors, researchers and entrepreneurs. These daily interactions give rise to new and groundbreaking work in science, technology and architecture.

The environment at EPFL is one of exchange and interaction. With 107 nationalities represented on campus and more than 50% of our professors coming from abroad, the School is one of the world's most cosmopolitan universities.
The EPFL campus is contiguous with that of the University of Lausanne, an institution that excels in economics, the social sciences and humanities, as well as in earth sciences, biology and medicine. Taken together, the two campuses count 25,000 students, nearly 10% of the population of the larger Lausanne metropolitan area. This gives the city a unique dynamic. Lausanne offers students a wide palette of cultural and sports activities, unusual for a city of her size. Lausanne is also known internationally as the seat of the International Olympic Committee.
