Studying in France
Housing in Paris

Housing in Paris is quite expensive and it is important to determine what type of housing you are looking for according to your financial means.

A small place (room or studio) is between 600 and 1000 € for a student. You should add also a usual 2 month rent deposit and agency fees (if you look through a rental agency). Insurance is mandatory and costs around 150 € a year. Remember to bring all your financial information (account sheets, parents' information and ID card,etc.) you will need it.

ISG housing plateform

You are a future international student at ISG, use the school's housing platform on which you will be able to:

  • Find a rental close to the campus
  • Find your international or French roommate(s) and form shared rentals
  • Find a subletting
  • Find a room in a French family (ideal for the experience).

Thousands of accommodations from private owners, halls of residence, real estate agencies, or rooms in private homes, are available close to the school.

General information about studying in France

Student card

When you are fully registered, the ISG will issue a student card for the academic year. You will have to come pick it up at the International Bachelor Office. The card is very important for you since in France you can benefit from many reductions when showing proof of being a student. This is usually called “tarif réduit étudiant” and it exits at the movies, at many museums and exhibitions. You will be given one student ID so be careful not to lose it!
