Housing

All NYU Paris students are required to live in NYU-arranged housing as a condition of enrollment. Housing options include student residences, and homestays.  All students will complete an online housing application where they will express their interest in the type of housing assignment that is preferred. Housing assignments will be made based on availability of each housing type and may take into consideration if the student is enrolled in the Program II (Francophone) coursework or not. Keep in mind that assignments may not be the top preference but a placement in NYU approved housing is guaranteed.

NYU Paris Housing FAQ's:

Students who live in Residence I will live with other students enrolled at NYU Paris, have kitchen and bathroom facilities in the room, and will receive support from live-in resident assistants.

Located within the Cité Internationale Universitaire de Paris, Residence II offers single rooms to NYU students and houses local French and international students enrolled in the French university system. Each room has a private bathroom, kitchens are shared with other residents of the building. 

Residence III provides housing with French students in the same building within Cité Internationale Universitaire de Paris. "Comfort" rooms are singles with private bathrooms, "Classique" rooms are single bedrooms with a common/shared bathroom. Kitchens are shared with other residents of the building.  

Students who live in homestays must understand that NYU does not control these units. Rather, NYU Paris puts students in contact with independent Parisian hosts who have rented to NYU students in the past and are willing to rent space on a short-term basis. NYU Paris has no financial relationship with hosts/home owners. 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.

Students who live in homestays will live in neighborhoods in all twenty arrondissements of Paris and its immediate suburbs. Average commute time from student housing to the NYU Paris academic center and Parisian universities ranges from 30 to 50 minutes.

There is no "average" room. Every housing placement differs in size and prices range from $600 to $1,400 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 the housing. The charge for living in the student residences is constant for fall and spring semester, whereas the cost to live in a homestay is greater in the spring semester due to the extra length of the spring semester academic calendar.
