Housing in Paris - MA Students

M.A. students in Paris choose between an apartment, a host family, or a residence hall (foyer) for their time abroad. Students who prefer an apartment or a host family will work with our housing placement agency, Host Families in Paris, to select appropriate accommodations. Students who prefer a foyer will work with our Student Life Assistant in Paris.

Host Families in Paris has contacts with about 70 hosts in the greater Paris metro area. We also have agreements with 6 student residence halls or foyers. All of the housing options have been evaluated and reviewed by former students, Host Families in Paris, and/or the Student Life Assistant.

Once you have received your housing assignment from Paris there are several steps which you must undertake to secure your spot:

Apartments and Host Families
Host Families in Paris will provide you with information for making payment when they send you your housing assignment. They do require students to pay the rent amount for the entirety of a semester up front.

The School in France will provide you with the application form and instructions on how to wire your deposit to the foyer. Expect to receive the admission intake form and instructions on how to send the deposit via e-mail from the School in France's Student Life Assistant.

Reglement de principe
All students and their proprietor must read, sign and date the Reglement de principe and return it to Middlebury. This is an important housing agreement that outlines rules and responsibilities of both the student and the proprietor.
