Practical information

Finding an accommodation is a key step in the preparation of your time abroad. It can be difficult to find a place to live in Paris but there are many ways to find your future accommodation and enjoy your stay in Paris! Do not hesitate to start your searches early. Here are some useful links that will help you find a place to stay:


The CROUS is a branch of the French public higher education system in charge of various issues related to student life such as housing, food, scholarships and employment. The CROUS of Paris provides around 6,500 accommodations for students and for a large range of prices. You will find single, shared rooms as well as apartments of all sizes.

The ALJT (Association Logement Jeunes Travailleurs) offers housing especially for young workers and students between 18 and 32 years old. There is a residence in Villejuif that offers studios ranging from 543€ to 623€ where Sorbonne Université’s students are welcomed to stay. Go to the website of the residence here, apply and indicate "SU Partenariat" in comments.


Studapart is also a partner platform that acts in favour of access to housing. It provides students and future students with an online platform that allows them to access various housing offers from individuals and private student residences.

Welcome to Sorbonne University's Faculty of Science & Engineering

A unique combination of courses and expertise

Our international study programmes are organised according to the major disciplinary areas of the faculty. They represent the graduate study programmes that are not strictly conducted in French or that could be suitable (in part) for non French-speaking students. They also reflect part of the diversity of the disciplines involved and the bi- and inter-disciplinary aspects of many of the courses we offer.


Research & Innovation

We rely on disciplinary skills and on interdisciplinary approaches to renew concepts, methods and research subjects and to focus on some of the crucial issues faced by our societies: transformations affecting the very construction of knowledge (data, AI), the treatment of complex objects (the environment, marine and ocean sciences, cultural heritage) or our contributions to addressing societal challenges (climate change, healthcare).

Study at | The Faculty of Science & Engineering

Our campuses offer different and unique experiences to our students, visitors and staff. Resources and support services are also available to ensure an equal chance at success to all.

Campus Life

In addition to the cultural activities and events organised throughout the year by our clubs and societies, the Parismus society organises numerous events, evenings and cultural visits that will help you discover France and its parisian life.
