The campus in Passugg includes several buildings. In addition to the main building - where you can eat in five different in-house restaurants while enjoying a well-deserved break between lessons and studies - our students also live and study in Fontana and the Bachelor Village.

Leisure Time

Have fun on our campus outside of your studies

Spending your free time on our international campus is fun. We have our own gym, a basketball court and are planning a running track in the forest. Or perhaps you would rather do something cozy?

Discover the surroundings – Graubünden, our world of experience

Studying in Switzerland - especially in the fantastic mountains of Graubünden - means not only work, but also fun, nature and lifestyle. Graubünden is known as the No. 1 tourism canton in Switzerland and is ideal for studying hotel management and getting to know the tourism business from top to bottom.

A few fun facts: In the canton Graubünden there are approx. 150 valleys, 615 lakes, 937 mountain peaks up to Piz Bernina at 4,049 meters above sea level.

Graubünden is famous for its undisturbed Alpine surroundings, good weather and cozy mountain huts. Here you will find some of the most famous ski resorts in Europe: St. Moritz, Scuol, Arosa, Davos, Lenzerheide and Flims/Laax.

The summer season is enjoyed by many Grisons residents and newcomers like you with sports such as biking, hiking and golf. The river in the Rhine Gorge is just as fascinating as the Ela Park with its mountain streams and stone steps. Motorcyclists appreciate the popular mountain pass roads of San Bernardino, Splügen, Julier, Lukmanier and Oberalp, which meander past meadows full of Alpine herbs and bell-bearing cows. In addition, once you experience your first Alpine glow at sunrise or sunset, you will want to tarry even longer.

Chur - Our go-to destination

EHL and SSTH students shopping in the town of Chur

We are only 10 minutes away from Chur, which is not only the capital of the canton of Graubünden, but also the oldest city in Switzerland. The first findings date back to the Stone Age. The old town is reminiscent of the imprint of an advent calendar, as the small houses with their pointed roofs crowd together and form cozy lanes. Walk around the town and stroll though the inviting shops and cafés surrounded by snow-capped mountains and the serenity of nature.

 

Discover Chur - The Swiss Alpine City

EHL SSTH students discover Switzerland and nearby Europe in their free time

From Chur you can get anywhere, it is the connecting city between north and south. It is an important traffic junction, where trains and buses meet. You will you notice that the south cannot be too far away, because there are many "tropical" nights here in summer (at least 20°C at night). The great European cities like Munich, Milan and Paris are only a few hours away and worth a weekend excursion.
