If you are coming to the Université du MaineAccommodation

As part of an exchange program

If you come as an exchange student, the Université du Maine and its International Relations Office will give you all information you need to make your arrival easier. Our team of students tutors, recruited by our International Relations Office, will be at your disposal to help you with all these administrative procedures.

We provide you with a room at the University Residence hall on the campus. Warning ! The International Relations Office has a limited number of rooms available for international students :

  • Newly renovated 9m² with an individual shower, toilet and refrigerator, shared kitchen, and Internet connection (ethernet)
  • Monthly rent of 245.65 € (2014-2015)
  • You will have to pay a security deposit of 270 € when you first take the room. This deposit will be given back to you at the end of your stay if nothing has been broken or damaged in your room.

    To register at the Residence hall, you will need :
  • 2 photographs
  • The security deposit and the first month’s rent in cash
  • Room insurance (about 15 €) will have to be purchased at the International Relations Office
  • You will have to purchase a university insurance (about 12 €) from one of the Insurance providers on the campus.

You can apply for a financial aid from the French government if you have a Residence permit.

It is not possible to get your room at the Residence hall on weekends and after 4 pm (Monday through Friday)

If you think you will not arrive at the Residence hall on time, you will have to book a hotel room :
