Living in France
art de vivre, history
and culture
Studying in France also means living in France and discovering the
distinctive French way of life.
Campus France will help you prepare for
departure and offer support upon your
arrival in France.
Students enjoy special advantages
in France that make life more
enjoyable
An extensive system of discounts, assistance, and special facilities allows students
to stretch a relatively modest budget to cover basic needs—and to enjoy life in France.
Benefits include a network of student restaurants, university housing, rent subsidies,
health insurance, student clubs and associations, and discounts on public transportation,
movies, museums, libraries, and sporting
events.
Sports and cultural activities
France, the first touristic destination offers too:
• the rule of law and civil liberty
• an excellent health system
• a congenial environment
• renowned and varied cuisine
• efficient public transportation
32
Culture is a daily affair in Paris and in France’s
regions.
Students enjoy discounts and special
subscription prices at all cultural events.
Student status also makes it easy to stay
active in sports through discounted access
to athletic facilities. Rare is the campus that
does not host a wide range athletic clubs,
associations, and leagues.
Many universities and schools are located
in city centers, offering easy access to the
rich social and cultural life of France’s lively
cities. Museums, bookstores, theaters, and
cafés are never very far away.

Housing
in France
The online platform of the CROUS network www.lokaviz.fr
Nearly 60,000 students have found housing using the CROUS network’s
online platform. Rentals bearing the Lokaviz label are accompanied by protections and assurances designed especially for students.
La Clé, security deposits for students
Before looking for a place to live in France, students must
decide, in light of their financial means and the length of
their program, what sort of housing arrangement is best
for them. Housing is relatively expensive in France, but
international students, like French students, enjoy the
benefit of housing assistance.
University residence halls
Private-sector rentals
Located on campus or in town, university residences are run by France’s regional student service centers (CROUS,
Centres régionaux des œuvres universitaires et scolaires). The residences
feature furnished rooms and studios,
generally well-equipped. The monthly
rent is between €120* and €350*.
Space in university residence halls
remains in very short supply, however,
especially in Paris, where priority is
given to the recipients of French government scholarships and students
participating in exchange programs.
www.etudiant.gouv.fr>Vous loger
Renters are generally required to
make a deposit to guarantee the
payment of rent. Rents are high,
especially in large cities, and above
all in Paris. In general, renters must
show proof that their monthly
income is at least three times the
rental amount.
Shared rentals
Property rentals to groups. Several
individuals may enter into a lease
with a property owner, with each
having equal rights to the property.
No special regulations apply to such
rentals. All tenants have the same
rights and obligations as does a
single tenant who executes a lease.
Anyone who wishes to apply for
housing assistance must ensure that
his or her name appears on the lease.
Note: In contrast to the situation at
France’s universities, most Grandes
Écoles and private institutions have
a good supply of on-campus housing.
Note
Joint-responsibility clauses are often
added to group-rental agreements
and apply for the entire term of the
lease. Such clauses mean that if one
tenant does not pay his or her share
of the rent, the property owner may
try to collect it from the other tenants.
Privately operated student
housing
Many
housing-related
links can be
Private buildings designed for students
are found in most large cities. Most have
been built in recent years to compensate
for the shortage of university housing.
Rents range from €600* to €700* per
month in Paris and from €350* to €550
elsewhere.
A government guarantee available in all of France’s academic regions (except
overseas) enables students who do not have a personal guarantor to obtain
access to housing.
The mechanism is open to students who:
• have income but no access to funds for a security deposit from family, friends,
or a bank • wish to reside in France in order to pursue a course of study • are
under 28 years of age on September 1 of the year in which the lease is signed.
Applications for a security deposit through the La Clé mechanism are made
through the Lokaviz site
Housing assistance
Rooms in private houses
More suitable for short stays, renting a furnished room in a private home may
cost €200* a week in Paris with breakfast included, or €300* with breakfast
and dinner. Costs are lower outside Paris.
Intergenerational housing
Several organizations have matched older people who have a spare room to
rent with students looking for a place to live. The older individual, who may be
a property owner or a tenant, must offer a suitable room, which may be furnished or unfurnished, with free access to the common areas of the property
(kitchen, bathroom, living room). The student agrees to be a “good neighbor,”
to exercise reasonable care and vigilance, to perform “small favors” to facilitate
the daily life of the older person, and to pay a portion of the utility and maintenance charges (such as water and electricity).
To use the services of an organization providing intergenerational rentals, the
student generally must pay a yearly fee to the organization (typically between
€100 and €350 depending on the type of lodging found), in addition to application fees (around €15).

International students,
like French students, may
be eligible for housing
assistance.
There are two types of
assistance, depending on
the type of housing one
occupies. The two forms of
assistance, which cannot
be combined, are social
housing assistance (ALS,
allocation de logement
à caractère social) and
personal housing assistance
(APL, aide personnalisée
au logement). The amount
of assistance varies with
the rent to be paid and the
student’s circumstances.
If you are sharing an
apartment, you and your
roommate may both receive
assistance, provided both your
names appear on the lease.
Information and
eligibility criteria can be
obtained from the Caisse
d’Allocations Familiales
(CAF, family assistance
fund) serving the area in
which you live.

Studying in France
Living in France
Working
in France
While in school
After graduation
Students from the member countries
of the European Economic Space
(plus Switzerland) may work freely
and without restriction while studying
in France.
Since July 1, 2007, French law has allowed other international students
to work under the following conditions:
A residency permit (VLS-TS, validated
by OFII, or a residency permit in addition to a visa) marked “student” entitles
the student to accept paid employment
for up to 60% of the legally defined
work year (or 964 hours per year),
without prior administrative authorization.
• International students holding a degree equivalent to a master or above
International students who have earned
a degree that is equivalent to a European
master or above may seek authorization to
reside in France from 6 months to 1 year
after the expiration of their student residency permit. This authorization, which
is not renewable, allows the graduate to
work for up to 60% of the legal work week.
If the employment contract is related
to the subject of the graduate’s degree
program and if it provides compensation
that is equal to or greater than 150% of
the minimum wage, the prospective employee may apply to the local prefecture
for change of status from student to employee. Once authorization is granted (it is
not granted automatically), the individual
may begin working full time.
Note: The time that students spend in
internships connected with their academic program (and covered by a written
internship agreement) are not counted
toward the maximum allowable working
hours, even if the student is compensated during the internship.
The minimum gross hourly wage, set by
law, is €9,67.
Withholding reduces the worker’s net
wage by about 20%.
• Other students
Accepting an offer of employment from
a French firm after graduation implies a
change in status (from student to employee). Graduates apply for the change
by submitting their employment contract
or offer of employment.
GOOD TO KNOW
The “skills and talents” residency permit
is granted in view of specific student
plans that are in the interest of France
and the student’s home country.
The skills and talents permit is granted
for a duration of 3 years.
It functions as a work permit. Students
are free to choose any employment that
is in line with their plan (except certain
regulated professions, such as medicine).

French law
permits
international
students to
work
International students are eligible for
student jobs at universities and other
public institutions of higher education. Student employment contracts
are offered for a period not to exceed
12 months. They run from September 1
through August 31.

Insurance
Medical insurance
• Students from countries outside
the European Economic Space who
are under 28 years of age on October 1
and enrolled in a recognized educational
institution for a program of at least 3
months’ duration are automatically
enrolled in the student segment of
the national health insurance plan,
part of France’s social protection system.
Students join the plan when they
register at their educational institution.
The cost of participation is about €200.
Some students (notably scholarship
recipients) are exempted from paying
the fee.
After age 28, non-European students
must join the social security system
through
the
health
insurance
consortium closest to their residence.
Addresses for those organizations,
known as caisses primaires d’assurance
maladie (or CPAMs), can be found on the
Web site of the social security system:
www.ameli.fr
• Students from within the European
Economic Space (plus Switzerland)
may take advantage of the French social
security system without additional cost
provided they obtain a European Health
Insurance Card valid for the entire
academic year.
• All other students (those staying
for less than 3 months, and students
enrolled in institutions that do not
participate in the French social security
system) must purchase an individual
medical insurance policy from a private
insurance company. In France, the
annual cost of such policies runs from
€150 to €550.
On average, social security covers about
70% of the expenses related to an illness. Students may obtain supplemental health insurance coverage.
The three largest student group-health
plans are:
La Mutuelle des Étudiants : www.lmde.fr,
active throughout France;
Emevia, an association of regional student
health plans:: www.emevia.com;
and Smerep: www.smerep.fr.
Multirisk renter’s insurance
All dwellings must be insured
against risks such as theft, fire, and
water damage. Insurance can be purchased from private companies.
Multirisk home insurance includes
liability coverage, meaning that the
policy holder is insured against claims
from third parties who may be injured in
an accident on the premises.
Note: Other types of insurance are also
available, such as automobile insurance,
insurance for participation in a sport,
and insurance for repatriation of remains in case of death.
Some forms
of insurance
are obligatory

Cultural life
France’s vibrant cultural life offers students access to culture
on a daily basis. Even outside Paris, the proliferation of
cultural sites is proof of the country’s creative effervescence.
Print media
Consider, for example, music
festivals such as the Vieilles
Charrues in Carhaix, the Folles
Journées in Nantes, the Eurockéennes in Belfort, Jazz in Marciac, and the Transmusicales
in Rennes; the film festivals
in Cannes, Deauville, Avoriaz,
and Cognac; dance festivals
such as the Biennale de la
Danse in Lyon and the Part
des Anges in Bordeaux; the
theater festivals of Avignon
and Aurillac; the renowned comic art festival in Angoulême;
and national events such as
the Journées du Patrimoine
and the Fête de la Musique on
the first day of summer.
All information on
www.culture.fr
France’s print media are distinguished by their diversity: specialinterest magazines, daily newspapers, and national and regional
weeklies and monthlies. Every city
and region has a newspaper that
provides national, international,
regional, and even the most local
of news.
www.presseregionale.fr
Libraries Museums and monuments 7,000 museums operate throughout France. Although the
Eiffel Tower remains the country’s
most visited attraction, more than
40,000 other sites and structures
have been designated as historic landmarks, among them the
chateaux of the Loire, Mont
St. Michel, the Château d’If, the Roman arenas in Nîmes, and the port
of La Rochelle.

France has more than 3,000 libraries.
Anyone can obtain a free library card
at his or her local library; the card can
be used at any library in the town or
city system.
University libraries
Every institution of higher education possesses at least one library.
Hours vary but include evenings
(until 10 pm) and Sundays. France’s
127 university and institutional
libraries possess more than 40 million books.
Sport In addition to the athletic facilities of
educational institutions (often known
by the acronym SUAPS), France has
many public sports complexes. Thousands of clubs provide access, for a
modest fee, to training equipment
and athletic facilities.
Visits to municipal swimming pools
are also very affordable.

Clubs
and special-interest groups
With more than 2 million associations, France’s people have
woven a vast fabric of voluntary ties, of which student
clubs are an important part. Special-interest groups enable
students to get together for extra-curricular activities such
as festivals, expositions, concerts, lectures, trips, hikes,
tours, evening activities, and more.
Through clubs and associations
students also engage in a wide
variety of humanitarian, athletic,
economic, and cultural activities in
which they have the opportunity
to play a variety of roles, such as
chairman of a festival, treasurer of
a student business club, or spokesperson for a cultural project. Such
involvements can make v to their resume. Through alumni associations
students can maintain ties with
their academic institution after graduation and benefit from contacts
with other graduates.
