Welcome to our Institutions

The Welcome Center is a service provided by the University of Geneva (UNIGE) and the University Hospital of Geneva (HUG) for the purpose of making it easier for future staff at these institutions and their families to set up home in the region:

  • Looking for housing, removals
  • Challenges of everyday life (insurance, health care, transport, etc.)
  • Helping children settle in and integrate
  • Leisure pursuits, culture, sport
  • French lessons
  • Assistance in completing administrative formalities

Services offered by the Welcome Center are, for now, confined to members of the teaching staff at the University of Geneva and managerial-grade staff at the University Hospital of Geneva who have come from another canton/country. Carrière2 offers support to partners of researchers at the University of Geneva (from post-doctoral level) who have recently settled in Geneva, irrespective of their marital status, as they seek to further their own professional careers.
