DUEF - Housing

Students registered for a DUEF have the possibility to request housing with Carré International and are offered two options: on-campus Crous residence or with a French host family.

Housing placement depends on rooms’ availability and payment delay. It is therefore not systematic.
Housing requests must be made when pre-registering on-line for the DUEF by selecting “YES” in the “Do you need an accommodation” section.
The office of mobility logistics of Carré International will process the request and will provide the detailed procedure.
For any question, please contact : intl.fle.duef@unicaen.fr

On-campus Crous residences

University residences are co-ed and reserved to students under 30. They are located on different campuses in Caen and suburbs , and are all accessible by a direct tramway line from any of the 5 Caen campuses.
A flat-rate is applied for each semester or for the whole academic year. It varies depending on the residence and/or the room type:
  • single rooms, appr. 9 m2 with washbasin (common toilets and showers on each floor).
  • single renovated rooms with washbasin, shower, toilet and wired or wireless internet.
Rents start at € 255*/month depending on the residence and the room's equipment and are due in full for the duration of the chosen academic program (semester or full academic year).
However, students cannot choose the place at their convenience; rooms are assigned based on availability.
The current rates and detailed procedures will be communicated once the housing request has been processed.

A €30 non-refundable reservation fee is charged for each booking.
Beware! No early arrival possible, unless prior specific authorization by our program officers.

*2020/21 rates for information

French host family

To live à la française, to fully participate to the daily life of a French family, to actively practice the French language, we recommend this type of homestay.
Carré international collaborates with Association Caennaise d’Accueil Universitaire (ACAU) for the placement of students in local host families.

This homestay option is available starting €420 per month, for room and breakfast. For any question, please contact intl.hebergement.famille@unicaen.fr
