Housing Applications

Submitting an application does not guarantee you will be assigned housing. Only the housing assignment confirmation, sent by the Housing Office and based on availability, ensures you have been assigned housing.

As with French students, you may qualify for student accommodation aid from the CAF (Caisse d’allocations familiales – Family Benefits Agency). For this aid, you must be a student, have a rental contract in your name and not be responsible for any children. For non-EU students, you will need a residence permit that is valid for over 3 months .You may complete your application on-line via the following website: https://www.caf.fr

Accommodation insurance

Personal insurance is obligatory no matter your accommodation, whether you are staying with a friend or renting in the private sector.
The insurance amount varies (between €30 and €70 per year) depending on the size of the apartment, the number of rooms and the risks insured (fire, theft, water damage, civil liability, damage to adjacent buildings…).
