Student housing aid

| Introduction

In France, most students receive financial assistance from the State to pay their rent. It goes from €70 to €295/month.

There is no minimum age to receive the student housing aid (often called “APL” in French) but you must meet several criteria:

  • The accommodation is your main residence in France.
  • Your rent certificate must be signed by your landlord.
  • Your name must be on the lease.
  • You cannot be related to your landlord.
  • You are a EU citizen or VLS-TS holder.
  • You must have low/ no incomes.
  • You must have a local bank account.

You don’t have a local bank account yet?
