Practical information


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 :
  • The association HEBERJEUNES ( : located in the Orsay campus may give help (Tuesday and Wednesday 2pm-6pm and Friday 9am-12pm)

  • The web platform 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.
