There are many reasons why you might want to share accommodation in a student residence. For example, it can be a way to rent larger student accommodation for less, be part of a community and meet new people in an unfamiliar city. Find yours now !

Living in shared student accommodation has lots of advantages. 

The concept of shared accommodation was first introduced in the 1980s in the United States, and has since become a social phenomenon, thanks in particular to series like New Girl. Every year, it allows thousands of students and young professionals to pay less rent and meet great people. 

While the main advantage of shared student accommodation is its cost-effectiveness, giving tenants the opportunity to access more spacious housing at a reasonable rate, most students and young professionals opt for this type of accommodation to live as part of a community. Shared accommodation allows you to socialise, share household chores and face everyday problems with your flatmates so you never feel lonely, even when you have just moved to a new city or country. 

Living in shared accommodation — why not in a student residence ?

Of course, moving into a new home can be daunting, especially when it’s with people you don’t know. But don’t worry, if there’s one way to embark on this adventure safely, it’s in a student residence. 

Shared accommodation in a student residence means that you have various amenities on your doorstep, including a lounge area, fitness room, laundry room and shared garden, where you’ll easily forget the worries of everyday life to focus on what really matters: community life !

As well as your flatmates, you’ll also be able to meet lots of other residents in the common rooms, where you can have fun and socialise.  

Whether you were aiming small with one flatmate, or big with a larger group of six, make lots of new friends in one of our YouFirst Campus student residences in Paris, Bordeaux, Lille, or Marseille.
