Our history

The "Foyer des Étudiants Les Creusets" was built in 1979 at the instigation of Mgr Henri Schwery in collaboration with Abbé Michel Maret, who was the head off training and construction. The building's avant-garde architecture was designed by the architect Ami Delaloye.

These visionary founders designed individual rooms with private bathrooms, modular communal areas and a large dining room.

Marianne and Hans Gisler ran the house until 1995. 

Anne and Marco Mayoraz took over the management for 28 years. They have developed the Foyer by adapting it to the new needs of students.

Since 2023, their daughter Oriane Mayoraz has taken over, continuing the family tradition of the "Foyer des Étudiants Les Creusets ".
