Finding an accommodation in the Paris area may take some time, so we advice candidates of the Master to take action well in advance.
Some advices follow:
- Centre régional des œuvres universitaires et scolaires de Paris (CROUS) may provide housing to students of Paris universities. The web site is in French (last update May ’16)
Information is available on the web site of university Paris-Sud:
- Telecom-ParisTech has two dedicated housing facilities, nicknamed “Maisel” (maison des élèves, students’ house). More information is here or here. The contact person (Maisel director) is Bernard Cahen, mail : firstname.lastname@example.org
The association HEBERJEUNES (http://www.heberjeunes.fr/) : located in the Orsay campus may give help (Tuesday and Wednesday 2pm-6pm and Friday 9am-12pm)

- The web platform www.leboncoin.fr allows to access to many opportunities for housing (“co-location”)
- Housing in Paris may be very expensive. We advice to look outside the city, preferably along the “RER B” train line, in particular the southern part. For example, a train from Orsay to Cité Universitaire (the nearest station to Telecom-ParisTech) takes less than half an hour.
- The students of Dario Rossi, professor at Telecom-ParisTech, have provided here some ideas and suggestions to help in finding an accommodation in the Paris area.
Tuition fees of the M2R amount to 250€
