Housing options at NYU Paris 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. Keep in mind that assignments may not be one of the student's ranked preferences but a placement in NYU approved housing is guaranteed.


Housing Assignments

NYU Paris Housing FAQ's:

Residences located within the Cité Internationale Universitaire de Paris offer single rooms to NYU students and house local French and international students enrolled in the French university system. All rooms have a private bathroom, kitchens are shared with other residents of the building. 

Residences located in Parisian neighborhoods and close suburbs will have a mix of NYU students and students from other local universities, as well as other residents. These units are single studios with a private bathroom and a kitchenette.

Students who live in homestays must understand that NYU does not control these units. Rather, NYU Paris works with well established homestay agency that assigns students with independent Parisian hosts who 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 residence life coordinator serves as an intermediary between the residence managers, property owners, homestay agency and students. All accommodations have been visited and approved by NYU Paris staff.

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.
