There is a range of accommodation options in Paris, from a studio flat in private student halls to renting a shared flat or taking advantage of a “maid’s room” — usually a small, cheaper room with shared facilities on the top floor of an apartment building.
Whichever option students choose, ULIP will be there to offer support and advice every step of the way. The university has a block booking with some student halls of residence, and can act as a guarantor if a student chooses to rent a flat from a private landlord.
Students may also wish to live on campus at Cité Internationale Universitaire in southern Paris. Its 40 residences are open to students from all over Paris, and priority is given to postgraduate students, making it a popular choice.
Students at ULIP have access to several state-of-the-art libraries and a comprehensive range of electronic resources, as well as PC workstations and laptop plug-in points throughout the university building.
Students are also able to take advantage of the Virtual Learning Environment (VLE), which offers study support and help with time management and coursework related issues. Lecturers and tutors are available to contact through the VLE for guidance and feedback on assignments, and students can be connected to their peers, sharing questions and ideas and building the university’s online learning community.
