How to apply for accommodation in 6 steps

Drapeau francais

ALL INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS (except Campus France grant holders) who require university accommodation must complete an International Student Accommodation Application (Dossier Logement Etudiant International) every year between 15th January and 31th May. You mustn’t wait for your examination results to apply.

Before entering your International Student Accommodation request, you must first check prices on the websites of the different Crous concerned and apply for an accommodation corresponding to your budget.

To request an International Student Accommodation , you have to apply on internet. Your application has a national value: you can enter a maximum of 4 university accommodations choices for various academies. It will always be possible to modify your file, including your accommodation wishes, later. It is highly recommended to make various accommodation choices.

IMPORTANT : communication with Crous is done only by e-mail and SMS messages and therefore you must:

  • Ensure that your e-mail address and telephone number are inputted correctly
  • Check your e-mail inbox regularly, including the spam/junk mail
  • Inform Crous of any changes to your contact details so you are easily contactable
