How to Find a Place to Live in Paris?
Looking for an accommodation
Paris School of Business understands that finding accommodation in Paris is not an easy task, especially for international students. We know that several students are waiting to submit their visa application but require their housing certificate in order to do so.
Different solutions exist, according to your lifestyle and your financial means:
Sharing an apartment. It’s called Colocation in French.
Living with a host family, a Famille d’accueil in French.
Staying in a student room of student dormitories or of the International university campus, la Cité universitaire internationale.
Renting a room or an apartment. You will need a deposit and probably a financial guarantee.
For each of these solutions, we are providing you some contacts. See on the sidebar of this page.
Financing your housing
With your student visa, you have the right to a state subsidy called APL, which will help pay a small part of your rent.
The housing subsidy is given each year to about 500,000 young people and students, French and foreign, regardless of their housing (room in a residence, dormitory, apartment, etc.). The amount of the subsidy varies from 90 euros to 150 euros per month, depending on your income, the amount of rent and the size of the apartment. To obtain the APL subsidy, you must go the "Centre de Gestion des Allocations Familiales (CAF)" in the neighborhood where you live and fill out a form. You must have a minimum of nine square meters per person or sixteen square meters for two people.

All countries are unique, but France holds a very special place in everyone’s heart and mind. France has always been a trend setter, not a follower, constantly and consistently over the last 2,000 years. It’s a dreamland destination, no wonder why it is the third preferred destination world-wide to study abroad, and is the most popular country visited by international tourists in the world.
France is not only renowned for the Arts (it is the number 1 country in the world for the accumulated number of Nobel Prizes in Literature ) and Sciences (France is the 2nd country in the world for Mathematics as proven by the number of accumulated Fields Medals received, the equivalent of the Nobel Prize for mathematics). It is also the home of the largest commercial plane ever designed and built, as well as the fastest high-tech bullet train in the world.
Paris is ideally located in the heart of the largest Economic Zone in the world, and hosts many top policy making Institutions, such as the OECD, UNESCO, the Intentional Chamber of Commerce, and is at a “walking distance”, 1 hour by plane to many European Institutions including the largest hub in the world for International Organizations, Geneva, in addition to the second largest Financial Center in the world, London.
Yet France exhales a very special “Art de Vivre”, made of a subtle combination of refinement, heritage, class and glamour, spirit and fun which cannot be found elsewhere, spanning across Le Louvre, and Parisian cafes, the Champs Elysée, and snowy mountains of the Alps, in addition to the luxury palaces and villas of the Riviera.
PSB Paris School of Business offers our students from all over the world the chance to enter this very special universe without prior knowledge of the French language. However if you wish, we also provide you with courses in French (as well as in Mandarin, Hindi, and Arabic).
