Students looking to maximize cultural immersion should preference to live with a host family. It's important to note that a host family doesn't necessarily mean a married couple with children. In Paris it's common for host families to fall into one of the following categories: retired couples renting out their children's rooms, single retirees, or young artists.
Important - Students must pay a security deposit and monthly rent directly to the host family in Euros. Housing charges do not appear on the NYU e-bill.
Choosing a single in a host family means that you would like to live with a French host family without any other students from the NYU Paris program living in the same household.
Your host family will provide you with your own furnished single bedroom (including pillows and blankets). You will share common areas like the kitchen and bathroom.
Choosing a shared host family means that you would like to live with a French host family along with another student from the NYU Paris program.
Your host family will provide you both with a single furnished bedroom (including pillows and blankets). You will share common areas like the kitchen and bathroom.
You may choose if you'd like your host to provide you with meals or not. If you choose meals, you should expect to share evening meals during the week with your host family. The cost of meals will be included in your monthly rent. Otherwise, you will be responsible for your own food. You will have access to your host family's kitchen for cooking.
