EURECOM does not have on-campus residences but our admission office helps its future students find accommodation by providing them access to database of offers. Students are responsible for their final choice of accomodation and should be aware of all the conditions before signing a housing contract.
The average monthly cost of accomodation depends on the type and size of flat. Prices start at 362€ for a fully furnished flat in a Student Public Residence (run by CROUS) to 650€ in the private sector. Flat-sharing options prove more affordable. Students should make sure whether charges (heating, water, electricity) are included or not in the rent. Prices paid for non included charges usually amount to 60-70€ / month.
Students are strongly advised to refer to us for any doubt or questions before signing a housing contract to be sure it complies with the law. Please find an example of housing contract.

- BIOT / VALBONNE (15-30 min bus)
The second biggest group of students lives in BIOT and VALBONNE. The communes are located in the hills and close to EURECOM. They provide less social activities than Antibes but enjoy a very calm and safe environment for studies.

Things to know
Some student residences and private owners may require a guarantor living in France or in nearby EU countries. A guarantor is a person or organization who may guarantee the payment of the rent and any bills in case of default on the tenant. Their financial resources must correspond to three times the amount of the rent.
In case the student does not have a guarantor, a bank guarantee can be accepted. Bank guarantees are provided by French banks and usually worth 3 times the amount of the rent.
International students can be eligible for a housing allowance, provided by the French public institutions CAF (Caisse d'Allocations Familiales) if they stay more than 8 months in France. They need to apply online and send documents to the CAF office in Nice after arrival in France. The allowance can only be paid on a French account. Be aware that this allowance is not guaranteed and students need to comply with the CAF's requirements.
You will have to subscrire to a housing insurance covering your flat during your stay in France. It costs around 60€/year and can be provided by French banks when you open a bank account. You will need to have it changed when you move out to another place because it is linked to a particular address.
