For your future French “home sweet home”, different kind of residences are available. You can choose between private student residences, social housing, accommodation through a private individual or CROUS residences (i.e. university residences): studios, one-room apartments or two-room apartments.
For your accommodation, Esisar’s International Office highly recommends you to choose accommodation through a private individual. The cost compared to public housing is not so different, but the quality and services offered are much better. We do not provide any assistance for public university residences in Valence.
You can have temporary accommodation when arriving, and then find by yourself accommodation in town, alone or sharing a flat (less expensive and more friendly).
