How to find accommodation in Paris

It is important to take care of accommodation as soon as possible as there is a very high demand for student housing in Paris, that’s why it is difficult to find a place to live.
The SKEMA Business School Paris campus is in La Défense, in the Hauts de Seine (92) county, accessible by the subway (L1), the RER A, the tramway and the train.
SKEMA Business School Paris accompanies its future and current students in their accommodation search via its Housing Service, accessible:
  • For newly enrolled students, via the Welcome Pack directly sent by e-mail by the school following the declaration of admission.
  • For continuing students, via the YEP (Your Education Portal)
