Accommodation in Toulouse

Access to housing in Crous university residences for international students is very limited and requests must be made directly through the international relations office.

Given this restricted and conditional access, it is essential to explore other housing options as early as possible to avoid complications once in Toulouse. International students can consult our housing guide for practical information on accomodation in Toulouse. 

Further assistance on housing and administrative procedures (Visa, housing grants, social security...) can be found at the Toulouse Welcome Desk.

The Welcome Desk also offers the Toul'Box, which is a resource specially designed for students to help get settled in Toulouse and the surrounding region.
