Located just a ten-minute walk from the Kaletsch campus is the Giardino residence, Giardino offers furnished triple and multiple occupancy apartments for 38 students. Triple occupancy apartments are studio-style and include a kitchen, bedroom, bathroom and balcony. Multiple occupancy apartments include a common kitchen, dining area, bathrooms and single bedrooms. A nearby hilltop offers exceptional views of Lake Muzzano and a nearby footpath leads to the village of Sorengo. On the ground floor of Giardino is a pizzeria where students enjoy the region's Swiss and Italian cuisines.

Welcome to Giardino! This is a very special residence hall, for we are in very close proximity with useful locations. Not only is it 3 minutes away from Kaletsch Campus, but residents can always visit the Giardino Pizzeria which is located right below the second floor of the residence, and we also have That’s Amore (and its famous sandwiches) right across the street. The “Sorengo Laguetto” FLP stop is 5 minutes away and it is a useful way to get to downtown Lugano or Ponte Tresa, and the “S.Grato” bus stop is right across the street. Giardino is also 5 minutes away from a pharmacy (Farmacia Sorengo) and a post office.

Giardino’s rooms are built as apartments with single bedrooms and shared kitchens, or shared triple rooms. The rooms with a shared balcony also have an amazing view of the Muzzano Lake.

Giardino is a great communal center and a home away from home to many students! I can’t wait to see everyone on campus and make great memories!
