Housing at Sciences Po

Housing at Sciences Po

During the first two years in France, Dual BA Program students will be guaranteed housing near campus in a student residence hall, private apartment, or other board arrangement. All student housing in France is administered by the government agency CNOUS

Deciding where to live is an important part of the transition to Sciences Po. Sciences Po students reside in many different housing situations—some students live in apartments owned and administered by public entities, while others secure other private housing alternatives. Sciences Po has a number of rooms reserved in student residences. The housing information included in the Acceptance Packet and on the campus-specific pages (Le Havre, Menton, Reims) provides enough information to begin looking for the housing that best suits each student's individual preferences and needs.

Regardless of nationality or parental income, Dual BA Program students are entitled to a housing allowance (“aide au logement”) from the Caisse d’Allocations Familiales (CAF), which amounts to a monthly subsidy to be used toward payment of rent.

Please note that Sciences Po does not administer student housing directly, but works with partner organizations to facilitate access to these residences for our students.
