Salève Adventist University (Campus Adventiste du Salève) is about five miles from Geneva across the Swiss-French border. The campus itself is part way up Le Salève, the top of which is about 4,000 feet high. This mountain with its restaurants and breathtaking view of the Rhone valley or Mount Blanc attracts many from nearby Geneva. From the campus, the city of Geneva and the Léman make a picturesque view. Classroom and residence hall facilities are all modern in design and in a good state of repair. Generally two students to a room is the norm in residence halls. Each dorm room has a telephone for intercampus and external calls. Shower and restroom facilities are located on each floor of the residence hall. In any school year about 40% of the students are enrolled in college level courses in theology and French language and culture. Another 40% of the students are enrolled in courses in the Lycee which has course work equivalent to secondary and junior college level in North America. The remaining 20% of the students attend the elementary school. Approximately three hundred to three hundred and fifty students attend classes. About 45% of them are college-aged by North American standards. A number of them are married theology students. College and secondary school classes are taught in separate buildings, but both college and secondary students live in residence hall facilities and eat together in the cafeteria. Some elementary school children also eat lunch in the cafeteria.
