University housing

Managed by the CROUS, the residences are located close to the teaching sites.

Obtaining an accommodation in a university residence can be difficult because the number of rooms available does not always meet the demand. Plan for an alternative solution and continue to look for accommodation even after you have submitted your accommodation request.

- The APL, the Personalized Housing Assistance, is intended for students living in housing that is subject to agreements between the owner and the CAF. The APL is calculated according to family resources and the rent. Its amount is deducted from the rent and is paid to the owner or tenant.
