Finding accommodation

UA does not provide accommodation for students, but on this page, you will find some tips to guide you in your search. There are various types of accommodation in Angers, but you can avoid unnecessary stress by searching for accommodation as early as possible.

There are several housing solutions:

  • A room at the student hall of residence with the CROUS
  • A room at a private student hall of residence
  • A private rental (apartment or room)
  • Social housing
  • Flatsharing
  • Intergenerational shared housing
  • Youth homes
  • What you need to know about renting in France

    Your obligations

    In order to sign your rental agreement (bail) you will have to:

    • Find a guarantor (or third party guarantee)
      This is a natural or legal person who undertakes to pay the rent in the event of default by the tenant.
      If you do not have a guarantor, the garantie visale can help you.

     

    • Pay a security deposit
      This is a sum of money requested upon entry to the rental and is intended to cover any possible damages. This sum is collected by the owner (loueur). It will be fully refunded by the owner within one month after the inventory of fixtures or upon return of the keys if the accommodation is returned without damage.
      Locapass can provide an advance for the security deposit.

     

    • Subscribe to a home insurance (assurance habitation)
      The insurance contract covers your personal liability and protects your home and its content against risks (water damage, fire, theft, etc.). It is compulsory.

     

    • Pay your rent (loyer) every month
      You will receive a proof of payment (Quittance de loyer) when you pay your rent.
      APL: (Aide Personnalisée au Logement) of the CAF can help you finance part of your rent.

     

    You wish to leave your accommodation?

    You will have to give notice: This is the period of time that a tenant must respect before leaving his or her accommodation. It is one month for a furnished rental and three months for an empty rented accommodation, except in large conurbations or tense areas.
