International-Europe Article published on 28 August 2023 , Updated on 29 August 2023

The GATE Desk is a multi-service welcome desk for international students, researchers or employees of R&D centers and higher education institutions in the Paris-Saclay area, open from August 28th to December 22nd , 2023.

At the GATE, you can carry out all the necessary administrative procedures for your move and stay in France in a single location.

Four partners (The Sous-Préfecture of Palaiseau, the NGO Science Accueil, Université Paris-Saclay and Institut Polytechnique de Paris) have decided to join forces in order to make administrative procedures easier for foreign students or researchers arriving in France. Other partners are also present at the GATE, such as RATP (transportation in Paris), CAF (housing and families allowances), CPAM (health insurance), CROUS (accommodation and scholarships), Pôle emploi (job research), Campus France (student mobility), la CPS (urban community), and more.
