Accommodation in Paris

Finding accommodation in the Île-de-France region is not an easy task and can take some time. It is recommended that you plan ahead as much as possible. Every student is responsible for finding their own accommodation and, if necessary, look for temporary housing for the start of the academic year. 

Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne University has some accommodation units within university halls of residence that it allocates to exchange students. However, being accepted and enrolling at Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne does not guarantee any student with an offer of university accommodation. Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne University will not issue proof of accommodation documents in advance and requires you to complete all necessary consular processing procedures beforehand. However, a proof of temporary address is sufficient.

To help you in your search, Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne offers a range of accommodation options. Unfortunately, these options are too limited to meet all demand.

Accommodation for exchange students

The accommodation options below are exclusively available to foreign students taking part in exchange programmes. This type of accommodation is allocated by the International Relations Department (DRI) of Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne University according to demand and availability. You will be contacted in June and December in order to apply for an accommodation. If you have a disability, please let us know so that we can take it into account in your application. Please note that these two organisations may also charge a non-refundable reservation fee.

Cité internationale universitaire de Paris

If you are a foreign master’s student you can apply directly to the Cité internationale through their website. In this case, you must not specify a partner code in the application form.


The Studapart online platform is a partner of Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne and allows students to view advertisements for various types of accommodation (private accommodation, university halls, estate agent offers). Studapart offers a guarantee system you have to pay for, called the Studapart Guarantee. All you need to do is submit a copy of your identity card and proof of admission to the university through the platform. If you are interested in this housing option, you must get in touch with the International Relations Department as soon as you are able to provide a document which certifies your admission at Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne University.
