Who are we?

The “Maximilianeum” is a charitable institution funded by the Joseph-Verein, which belongs to the (roman catholic) parish of “Liebfrauen”. We support and encourage young adults who are willing to learn, live with, respect and socialize with others. Residents represent about 15 different nations; regard of other cultures, gender and religious beliefs are of utmost importance.
Our houses offer good value accommodation for young adults during their studies and/ or trainee period. We run 3 houses, with135 rooms and 140 residents both men and women. Approximately 70% attend the ETH, 10% the UZH, and the rest other higher-level education institutions/ trainee-programs and interns.
