Location overview Situated next to the École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne on the shores of the Lake Geneva, the campus is one of the most scenic in the world. The views from the library across the sports fields encompass the lake and the French Alps. On a clear day Mont Blanc can be seen. Grazing sheep on the lakeshores help keep the campus lawn from growing too high!
