Housing Assignment: If you are assigned to a homestay or to an apartment, within a few days of your arrival, you will meet individually with a member of the NYU Paris staff to receive your housing assignment. You will be given an appointment to see your apartment and/or meet your French host. This assignment is final and cannot be changed. (Note: housing assignments will NOT be communicated to students before this occasion)

Contracts: Before moving in, you will be required to complete a written agreement with your landlord concerning rent, utilities, security deposit, payment methods accepted by your landlord, and the length of your stay.

Security Deposits: In accordance with French law, you will be required upon move-in to give a security deposit equivalent to one month’s rent and the first month's rent in its entirety. For this reason, you must bring Traveler's Checks equivalent to twice the maximum budget listed on your housing questionnaire. (ex. If 900€ is maximum budget, bring 1800€ worth of Traveler's Checks.)
Note: French bank accounts will not yet be available when you move in. You will be advised as to how to exchange Traveler's Checks during orientation.

Rent/Payment: Students who live in homestays and apartments will pay their homeowner/landlord directly each month. Generally payments are expected in cash.


 

NYU Paris Housing FAQ's:

There are multiple housing styles offered at NYU Paris. Students who live in the residence will live with other students enrolled at NYU Paris, have kitchen and bathroom facilities in the room, and will receive support from live-in NYU graduate student RAs. Students who live in homestays and apartments must understand that NYU does not control these units. Rather, NYU Paris puts students in contact with independent Parisian landlords, hosts, and brokers who have rented to NYU students in the past and are willing to rent their apartments or rooms on a short-term basis.

Housing charges for rooms in the student residence will appear on the student Bursar bill along with tuition and University charges. Rent and other payments for homestays and apartments are made directly to landlords and host families. NYU Paris has no financial relationship with landlords. NYU Paris receives no financial gain in exchange.

The NYU Paris housing coordinator serves as an intermediary between the residence manager, property owners and students. All accommodations have been visited and approved by NYU Paris staff.

The student residence is a 20 - 30 minute commute to the academic center. Homestays and apartments are located in safe neighborhoods in all twenty arrondissements of Paris and its immediate suburbs. Commute time from student apartments to the NYU Paris academic center and Parisian universities ranges from 20 to 50 minutes.

There is no "average" room. Every apartment, homestay, etc. differs in size and prices range from 500 to 1200 Euros or more per student per month.

According to French law, rent for all months in which a unit is occupied is due in its entirety and landlords may legally keep security deposits for up to two months after the student vacates.
