The Housing Department supports you in your searches and assists you with your formalities.
The Dauphine Housing Department offers housing by the semester or the year, and has around 800 housing units in Dauphine residences, housing associations or the CROUS, primarily in the near suburbs and in Paris, 45 minutes from the Porte Dauphine campus.
Housing is open to all students enrolled at Dauphine. CROUS scholarship holders have priority however, and are eligible for CROUS residences.
A housing assistance fee of €49 will be charged at the start of the process. This fee applies only to requests managed by the Dauphine Housing Department.
Before beginning your search
Demand for housing in Paris and the surrounding area outstrips supply. It can be difficult to find housing that meets all of your requirements (including price, size and location).

How to make a housing request
Important information for submitting a housing request
- You must be enrolled at Dauphine, or must have been accepted after the application procedure if this will be your first year (supporting documents will be requested during the application process). The Housing department does not manage assignments for stays of less than one academic year, except in exceptional cases. Important: incomplete applications will be disregarded.
- You must pay housing search assistance fees. Submitting an application doesn't automatically guarantee an assignment. However we will do our best to house each student requesting it.
- Allocation of housing to students enrolled for the academic year according to availability and mainly according to social criteria, distance from the Porte Dauphine campus and level of study (younger students and/or those residing far from campus are given priority). The final choice of residence is left to the discretion of the assignment commission. Applications that cannot be fulfilled at the time of the request are placed on a waiting list.
- The approved request is followed by an assignment which you must accept within 48 hours. You can generally access your housing within 15 days. For the September semester, housing can be accessed as soon as the assigned housing is vacated.
- Dauphine housing is assigned for one academic year. This assignment may be extended for the following year provided that the student confirms via the returning housing questionnaire that he/she will be returning to Dauphine the following September.
I am a CROUS scholarship holder
Your request will be granted priority. We recommend that you complete a DSE (student social form) in addition in March.
Rent prices with CROUS are lower than those we can offer through our partners. Dauphine does not involve itself in the process of awarding CROUS placements based on the DSE.
For information, there are around fifteen assignments each year for Dauphine students submitting a DSE. Level 5 to 7 scholarship holders generally have priority.
Important: an international student arriving for the first time in France, or not having a tax household in France or not having resided in France for the past 2 years, cannot submit a DSE to the Crous (Crous site).
If you are interested in the student residence housing option and you are a student enrolled for the year and if you would like assistance from the Dauphine Housing Department,
