Housing Subsidy

Depending on the type of housing you have and your family situation, you may be able to obtain a housing subsidy : "Aide personnalisée au logement" (APL).


You need to complete your application as soon as you move in the accommodation directly from the "Caisse d’Allocations Familiales" website : www.caf.fr.

If you share a flat with several people, each tenant needs to make a separate application. The amount of aid granted will be calculated depending on income and rent.

The University's Accommodation Office helps students to search for studios, apartments or private rooms in host families or "foyers".

The housing subsidy is granted upon the following conditions:

  • Income
  • Compliance with the rental's minimal standards of comfort and surface (at least 9 m2 for one person)
  • A valid "Permis de séjour" (Residence card) for foreign students (except for citizens of European Union and Switzerland)
