Looking for accommodation on Campus?

Once admitted to our program (in Master 1 or Master 2), students are offered the opportunity to have a university room (9 square meters) reserved for them on the campus via the CROUS (Centre Régional des Œuvres Universitaires et Scolaires)!


The International Welcome Office ("Bureau d'Accueil International" - BAI) of our University is in charge of accommodation on the campus and can provide precious information about housing if necessary.


You can also visit the CROUS website (in French only) to collect information about accommodation on the Le Mans University campus.
