Housing in Le Havre

Housing in Le Havre

In France, the Centre Régional de Oeuvres Universitaires et Scolaires (CROUS) is the organization responsible for student services throughout the country. Sciences Po students reside in many different housing situations—some students live in apartments owned and administered by CROUS, while others secure private apartments during their time in Le Havre. Student housing is abundant in Le Havre, and Sciences Po has a number of rooms reserved in student residences specifically for foreign students.


Students in Le Havre have access to apartments in seven different residences around the city (details below). These buildings offer studio apartments, which are fully furnished with a bed, desk, chairs, and closet. Each apartment has a separate bathroom and kitchen and offers WiFi and television access. Please note that it is not possible to move into a student apartment after 5 p.m. or on weekends; it is best to contact your residence directly prior to your arrival to schedule your move-in date and time.
