Student housing in Geneva for the month of May

Hello

Does any one know where I can find a room at a reasonable rate for the month of May?

I have checked with all the university housing option and they are full.

Try the Swiss Youth Hostel site -

www.youthhostels.ch

And you could also try the Salvation Army in Geneva. They have a large hostel but I am not sure who it is meant for! http://www.salvationarmy.ch/

The University housing is full when you will be here because the university is in session.

Ouch you are pinpointing one of the worst challenges in Geneva... Try websites such as https://www.airbnb.com/ or the only hostel in Geneva.

Excusing me for intriduing, but I'd like to ask if the core of University of Geneva is located near Reformation Wall area?

No it isn't.

And since the Uni is in session in May - no housing for others...

Geneva University occupies mainly three buildings. The one by the Reformation Wall is the historical one, but "Unimail" is now the largest building. It is not very far (5 minutes walking distance), on the other side of Plainpalais (large empty area in the middle of the city).
