Students have various options when looking for accommodation in Paris. The university works in partnership with private halls of residence within close proximity of the ULIP campus to provide students with a fully furnished flat with a private kitchen and bathroom. Priority is given to new undergraduate students.
Those wishing to seek accommodation from the private rental sector will find many affordable studio apartments and shared properties in the local area. Prices vary, however, students can expect to budget around €700 per month for rented accommodation. There are, however, many subsidies available to eligible tenants, and all students are eligible to apply for French housing benefits.
The Student Services team can offer advice and guidance, and there is a wide variety of online resources to aid students in their search, including a comprehensive accommodation guide on the ULIP website. The university will even act as a guarantor to the property landlord.
The ULIP campus is situated within a beautiful 19th Century building that has been thoroughly modernised with state-of-the-art facilities and equipment, only a short walk from the River Seine.
The university library is thoughtfully designed with individual and group study spaces, computer modules, scanning, copying and printing facilities, and, of course, a huge selection of books, journals, and research papers. The library also offers a large archive of digital resources, and students have access to the online library of the Queen Mary University of London.
Computing facilities throughout the university include PC workstations, points for plugging in laptops, and free Wi-Fi throughout campus. Both inside and outside the building, students benefit from the university’s innovative Virtual Learning Environment, a resource for students featuring study support and course management tools.
