Student Pages

At CERN there are a lot of initiatives for students. The Student-Club and young@CERN both in their own way, try to reach out to students for organising all kinds of social events: drinks, BBQs, parties, trips... The Student-Club also has a bi-monthly newspaper so that students can reach out to their community more easily. These events are only sporadic (1-2 times/month) and are mainly meant for you to meet new people when arriving or having fun with some old CERN friends. Asides from that, the CERN clubs, and expats can provide additional entertainment. Links to the social activities page with more information about these organizations and with information about nightlife in Geneva can be found here.

CERN already organizes lectures for years and the last years the input from students in this has been increased. There is now a student academic group, giving feedback about possible lecture topics, the level of past lectures and possible changes in the future to the Graduate Lecture Series organizer (M. Mangano) and the academic training committee. Since this year, we also have 2 representatives in the academic training committee: Penelope Ann Jackson (engineering, IT, applied physics) and Pieter Everaerts (particle physics). This year these were appointed by lack of time, next year we will be elected. Other members of the student academic group are Heather Gray, Omer Khalid, Yi Ling Hwong and David Garcia Quintas. People are always welcome to join this group. They can reach the group via email:

Links to all kinds of lectures happening in Geneva can be found in our Academics Section.

Looking for housing can be tough in Geneva, this section can help you with basic information.

There is also a general discussion forum for students, to dicuss work-related problems as well as social activities.

Soon there will also be student representatives, for CERN-paid students as well as user students. As a first step, this will happen as part of the staff association, CERN's own type of union. In this way, we hope to get better access to management information that concerns us and we also hope to be able to air some of our complaints more easily.

We also added a calendar to gather student activities.
