Housing in Menton

Housing in Menton

In France, there is a robust network of student residences owned either by the state or private companies, and these organizations are responsible for student services throughout the country. These services include student housing, grants, cultural and social opportunities, and study abroad resources. Sciences Po students reside in many different housing situations, and many in Menton have roommates during their first two years. Student housing is more limited in Menton than in other cities, but Sciences Po has a number of rooms reserved in student residences. As such, students are advised to apply for housing in Menton starting May 1st, as soon as they confirm their admission to the Dual BA Program.

Accommodations

Students in Menton have access to rooms in three different residences around the city (details below). These buildings offer rooms, which are fully furnished with a bed, desk, chairs, and closet. Please note that it is not possible to move into a student apartment after 5pm or on weekends; it is best to contact your residence directly prior to your arrival to schedule your move-in date and time.
