Housing

In Reims you have the option to live in either a homestay or student dormitory. If you opt to live in a homestay, you will be matched to a local host based on information you provide before arrival. If you choose to live in a dormitory, you can reserve it through an online application.

Dorm

Student dormitories are in various areas of the city. Before reserving a room, you’ll have access to photos and maps. If you decide to room with another student, you’ll likely be staying with another international student or a UC student. It’s rare that you’ll have a local French student as a roommate. Students on your floor may be attending any of the universities in Reims, which creates a fun intercultural experience.
