The University halls of residence
The University halls of residence are managed by CROUS (the Regional Student Welfare Office).
Rooms are available for 9, 10 or 12 months and are allocated according to students' personal circumstances.
As the number of applications exceeds the number of rooms available, it may be difficult to get a room in one of the University's halls of residence. We therefore encourage you to explore alternative options, even if you have applied for a room.
A few words about the university halls of residence
All the University halls of residence are situated close to the university so that students don’t have to travel too far. Single rooms are about 10 m2 in area. Each room contains a bed, a desk and a wardrobe. CROUS also provides sheets and blankets. Halls of residence are usually close to a university restaurant (which is even open in the evenings) and a library.
Bathrooms, toilets and kitchens are shared with other students living on the same floor. Rooms with private bathrooms are also available for couples.
Halls of residence provide the ideal quiet atmosphere for work, and they are also sociable places where you will quickly make friends.
This association, situated on the Orsay campus (building 311), can help you find accommodation.
It is open on Wednesdays and Thursdays (4-6 pm) and Fridays (9 am-6 pm).
