Basel is divided into two halves by the Rhine River. The northern half, Kleinbasel, is very popular for students to live in because of the rent being lower and a very active nightlife. Grossbasel, the southern half, has the advantage of being close to many university buildings and being in the center of town. Students must find their own housing, and this can be overwhelming. However, there is a program that Basel uses called WoVe, a student accommodation service, to help out. This service finds and rents accommodation for students who are pursuing their education. 
Students can also use Unimarkt of the University of Basel, where they can find flats or rooms for rent. Students can also post an ad that they are looking for a room/flat on this website, with a small fee. The link to the website is linked here
