Housing in Reims

Housing in Reims

In Reims, a number of organizations are responsible for student services throughout the city. Sciences Po students reside in many different housing situations—some students live in apartments owned and administered by public entities such as the Centre Régional de Oeuvres Universitaires et Scolaires (CROUS) while others secure other private apartments during their time in Reims. Student housing is abundant in Reims, and Sciences Po has a number of rooms reserved in student residences specifically for foreign students. 

Accommodations

Students in Reims 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 kitchennette and offers internet and television access. Each room has a bathroom and common kitchen located on each floor. 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.
