CROUS is the less expensive way of finding your accomodation (but you have to apply and it takes time).

Please apply as soon as possible because the application may take time.


When we contacted it, Crous aswered us the following : "pour effectuer une demande de logement, les étudiants doivent effectuer une demande en ligne via le portail vie étudiante: Après création d'un compte, ils doivent effectuer la saisie de la demande de logement en créant leur DOSSIER SOCIAL ETUDIANT"


Unfortunately, in our university we have dozen of thousand students, and they all ask for an accomodation at CROUS (which is the less expensive). So it is quite hard to make the process faster. It seems that it may take quite long time (weeks).


It seems also that for Visa needings, ISSO recommends you to find a different accomodation for the first weeks of september, in view of the response of the CROUS.
