Specific CROUS grants for students under 35 years old experiencing particular difficulties

There are 2 different types:

The age limit is 35 years old, including students who have resumed their studies.

Accommodation grants

  • The ALS, Allocation Logement à caractère Social (social accommodation grant), is for all students. It is calculated according to your financial resources.
  • The APL, Aide Personnalisée au Logement (personal housing allowance), is for students living in accommodation for which an agreement has been signed between the landlord and the CAF. HLM social housing is included in this. The APL is calculated based on family financial resources and the price of your rent. The amount is then deducted from the rent and paid to the landlord or the tenant. Find out more from the Caisse d'Allocation Familiale (benefits office) in the département where you live.
