Rents vary from 355€ to 560€ per month depending on the size, level of comfort and equipment of the accommodation. The charges (energy, internet, cleaning of the common rooms, caretaker)amount to 75€ a month. A rental of a duvet, a pillow and bed sheets is mandatory and costs 50€ (not the towels).
Reserving a student room at Saint-Louis
Once you have been accepted, you should complete and return the accommodation reservation form to the Accommodation Office as soon as possible. Depending on the type of room you choose, and also on the rooms available when your completed form is returned, the Accommodation Office will send you a lease agreement with the information to enable you to pay the rent and the deposit.
Please note that reservation is only effective once you have paid the deposit.
The room allocation process is organised in order of demands'reception date. It is very important to respect the registration deadlines (June 15 for the first term or for the whole year and November 15 for the second term). After these dates, Saint-Louis cannot guarantee the availability of rooms for exchange students.
