Applying for an accomodation
CROUS hall of residence
Most of our international students decide to stay in a CROUS Hall of residence. It is the cheapest accommodation for students and it is usually close to the school.
Graduating students: you will need to apply by April 30th, directly on the «CROUS Nancy-Metz» website.
Exchange students: you have received (or will soon) an accommodation form from the International Office. Fill it in and send it back to us by e-mail :

If you do not want to stay at a CROUS hall of residence, there are many other possibilities (Students’ House*, private flat...), but they are more expensive and you will have to ask for a guarantee in France.

In any case, paying a deposit and applying for a housing insurance is compulsory.
Every student living in France can apply for housing benefit to the Caisse d’Allocation Familiale (CAF).
However, the eligibility for this financial aid depends on some criteria such as the applicant’s rent and resources.
You can apply for housing benefit on the Caf website.
You just need to fill in the online form, print your file, and send/hand it to the CAF with the required document. Important: the flat/room must be rented under the applicant’s name.
For more information, please contact the CAF:
