The Château d’Hauteville is a hub for global learning and cultural exchange
Nestled in the hills above Vevey, Switzerland, with unparalleled views of Lake Geneva and the Alps, the historic Château d'Hauteville is Pepperdine's newest international campus and a dynamic expansion of Pepperdine's global impact. One of the region's largest and most prestigious properties, the château features 58,547 square feet of living space and will be the home to more than 100 Pepperdine students, faculty, and staff each semester.
The château's estate comprises approximately 90 acres (or 36.7 hectares). Of those 90 acres, 67 acres is the approximate area of the farmland on the estate. Hundred-year-old trees, picturesque pathways, vineyards, French-style formal gardens, stone-carved fountains, and woodland forests surround the grounds, providing an optimal environment for students and visitors to experience the peaceful surroundings, reflect on their academic studies, and be inspired to make a difference with their lives.
