How to find student accommodation in Paris
Are you coming to study in Paris? Here are some tips about finding accommodation for students in Paris.
Paris is not the easiest city to look for cheap accommodation. But, I have many suggestions if you are coming on a budget anyway. Finding the right apartment for students is difficult but not impossible! You can change between short-term rentals, university towns, shared rooms, and co-housing.
Before choosing the accommodation to evaluate for your stay, I suggest taking a look at a few sites to figure out what you are looking for and what the city can offer.
