If the last time we gave you advice on how to find the student accommodation of your dreamsThis time, we come back with more! Kidlee, has prepared an endless list of sites on which you can find your gem. 

A classic of student housing - LeBonCoin

Whether they are ads from agencies or individuals, there will be plenty of choice! On the other hand, you have to be careful with fraudulent ads. If there are not too many details or just a photo, go the other way! And above all, don't forget to be very reactive.

Hassle-free student housing - Studapart

If you've already started the process, you now know the reality of the student housing situation. What about a guarantor? If you are an international student and you don't have a guarantor in France, this can be a real obstacle to your application. And this is where Studapart comes in! By offering you its guarantee for unpaid rents in partnership with Allianz during the whole rental period. This guarantee replaces the physical guarantor and allows you to submit a complete file on the Studapart platform. Moreover, studapart accompanies you during and after the reservation.

In addition, it is a simplified online process, from the application to the reservation with a minimum of documents required and ensuring a quick response from owners within 72 hours.

Finally, this is a platform exclusively for students, so you're sure to find something you like.


Created by the Crous d'Ile-de-France, this site puts students and private owners in contact. The accommodation can be rooms, apartments or studios, furnished and equipped or not, as well as shared properties. 

To get the owner's contact information, you need to register for an account on my student services.

Student housing via agency - Bienici

It is important to remember that bienici is not a real estate ad site like the others. This site gathers the best of technology with a precise geolocation of the properties (like Streetview or Google Maps can offer). As well as all the data concerning a city or a neighborhood to see if it suits you or not. The icing on the cake is that bienici is reserved for real estate agencies, so there is good and bad news. The good news is that the ads are normally verified and real. So, there is nothing to fear from a possible scam. On the other hand, agencies mean agency fees!

Moreover, on this subject, we remind you that the agency fees cannot exceed one month of rent. Also, the inventory of fixtures cannot exceed 3 euros / square meter of living space. If you have any doubt about the agency fees, do not hesitate to use the public service simulator. 

The roommate map

Roommates are becoming more and more popular. Therefore, many roommate websites are flourishing. But, there is only one reference: the roommate map! Moreover, its interactive "map" is very easy to use and its service is totally free. If living together is your thing, don't wait any longer! 


A platform that doesn't look like much but that will allow you to do a lot of things. In particular, you can submit your student file directly online in order to hope to get a place in a student residence. If you're accepted, you can talk directly with the landlord and sign your lease.
