La Cite Universitaire de Geneve - a big village for 850 residents of 95 nationalities !

Activities in the Cité

Various activities are organized at the City by The Residents' Association

Each year after the beginning of the Fall term, elections were held and are open to all residents of the Cité.
Any resident could be elected as BARC member (Bureau of Cité Residents' Association), as long as they have lived at least one semester in the Cité. Each resident had the right to vote for a candidate of his choice.

For the 2015-2016 election, there were not enough candidates. After more than 50 years of existence, the Association was dissolved (PV 11.11.2015).
