Practical Information

RENTING WITHOUT A GUARANTOR

In order to rent your accommodation, many landlords will ask you for a guarantor, a person who earns enough money to pay for your rent in case you are not able to do it anymore. The CLE (Caution Locative Etudiante) is a State insurance implemented by the CROUS. It enables students without a guarantor to have easier access to housing.

COMPULSARY RENTAL INSURANCE

All students must suscribe to an accommodation insurance to provide garantees in case of accidents. You can ask any insurance company, or your bank for information, as they can provide such policies.

FINANCIAL AID FOR PRIVATE OR UNIVERSITY HOUSING:

Students can ask the Caisse d’Allocations Familiales (CAF) for the housing aid called APL (Aide Pour le Logement):

  • This aid enables you to reduce your monthly rent (around 80 euros for a room in a student residence), starting on the second month of rental, as the first month is called « mois de carence » (deficiency month).
  • The application procedure is available in your student residence.
  • The aid is applicable on monthly rents, two-week rents are not concerned.
