Foreign students who are awarded an excellence grant from UCP will be given a room in the CROUS housing facilities, as well as help from the international relations service regarding travel and accommodation.
Foreign students (including those from the EU) may be eligible for assistance from the Caisse d’allocations familiales (CAF, family allowances programme), in particular for housing. CAF housing help comes in two forms : APL (Aide Personnalisée au Logement for subsidised lodgings) and ALS (Allocation Logement à caractère Social) in accordance with set criteria (minimum surface of 9m² for one person and minimum comfort). If you are the lease holder, whether of a room, a household, a shared rent, or an apartment, you may be eligible for housing assistance.
In order to access such assistance, please fill in the form that fits your situation :
• If you come from an EU country, print out the CAF form and send it to the CAF office in the area (“département”) where you live.
• If you come from a country outside the EU, print out the CAF form and send it to the CAF office in the area (“département”) where you live. You should join a copy of your valid residence permit (“titre de séjour”) or, if not received yet, the receipt that you have applied for a permit of residence.
