Universities in France would not normally have their own accommodation and there is a shortage of availabilities in the state-owned halls (CROUS), which is why a large number of privately run Halls of Residence have opened over the years. These include the Estudines, Campusea, Nexity, Melon District to name a few.
Halls of residence offer the advantage of having online application procedures with the possibility of advance bookings. In private halls, students normally have their own fully-equipped studio flat with own bathroom and kitchenette.
Many of the halls are on the outskirts of Paris rather than in the city centre. Halls in central locations can be quite expensive.
From 700 euros to 1100 euros. Note that some Halls of Residence will not accept institutions as guarantors so applicants will need to provide proof of income from a guarantor who earns up to 4 times the monthly rent.
Apply as soon as you have a confirmed offer. Once you have applied, we can help to follow-up with the individual residence where required. We have good contacts with several of the Estudines residences in particular, where applicants can be reimbursed any deposit paid in advance of Results Day if they do not meet the conditions of their ULIP offer.
