Several accommodation options are available to Masters and PhD track students at the Institut Polytechnique de Paris. They can also benefit from an accommodation grant and aid in placing deposits.

Request for accommodation

To date, Institut Polytechnique de Paris does not have any housing unit to offer. We advise you to seek alternative solutions, particularly from the following organizations:

  • Studapart

    You will have to create an account directly on this plateform.
    In order to formulate a request for accomodation, your registration has to be complete and approved by the admission team of the Institut Polytechnique de Paris and your fees paid.
    A school certificate will be asked when confirming your accomodation request.

    The rental file is simplified and in 100% digital format. You can also benefit from services after your reservation, such as home insurance.
    If you don't have a guarantor living in France, Studapart is your guarantor for the whole duration of your rental. To be eligible, all you have to do is submit your ID and an enrollment certificate on the platform.
  • Partner areas in Massy (91), Palaiseau (91)…
    The Institut Polytechnique de Paris has signed 4 partnerships for all students from its member schools: Twenty Campus, ECLA, YouFirst and Studéa. 

If any accommodation becomes available among our partners, we could allocate them. You might potentially benefit from them.

You will be able to ask for an accommodation request on your registration area (home page of the form). Your application for an accommodation will be processed after your registration is completed and your tuition fees paid.

No accommodation request will be processed if your registration file has not been verified by the Admission team of Institut Polytechnique de Paris.

Homestay Accommodation

The ensemble2générations organization offers an intergenerational house-share free of charge or at a low cost. You are hosted in a local elderly person’s home in exchange for your presence in the evening and at night, some assistance in small tasks or for a low rent. The organization offers three options, depending on your needs and availability:

  • Free housing with the commitment of regularly being present in the evening and at night from dinnertime onwards. An annual fee of €390 is paid to the organization.
  • Affordable housing: the student is regularly present and provides some assistance to their host, and a (roughly) €100 contribution to monthly bills. The fee for ensemble2générations is €390 per year.
  • Solidarity accommodation leaves the student with lots of freedom with their timetable, but it does not rule out a certain level of socialization and assistance with errands. A monthly rent of around €280-400 and a €300 annual fee paid to the organization are to be expected. (APL housing support possible)

This option provides affordable prices as well as an opportunity to share a lovely experience with a local elderly person, in the spirit of helping one another. The organization supervises the homestay and ensures regular check-ups. All information on the conditions of registration can be found on the association’s website. 

Renting private housing

The IP Paris campus is located next to the town of Massy Palaiseau and just 45 minutes from the center of Paris by public transport.

Aid in getting a deposit

VISALE - Action Logement is a scheme which replaces the need for a guarantor or personal deposit.
The system is simple and completely electronic, providing support in putting down a deposit for accommodation. The scheme acts as the "guarantor" for future tenants.
Its objective is to support young people and Action Logement has developed other schemes that can be used alongside it, such as Mobili-Jeune or Loca-pass.
