A cheap and alternative means of accommodation
To stay in Paris at a lower cost, discover organizations that manage student and university accommodation. It is a savvy way to find accommodation in the city, either temporarily in the summer, or for the year for students studying in Paris.
Foyers or Maisons d’étudiants
Alternative and budget type of accommodation in foyers or Maisons d’étudiants. The UNME (Union nationale des maisons d’étudiants) has more than 20 foyers and student residences in Paris, some of which remain open throughout the summer and which welcome students who are travelling.
