Cheap accommodation in Paris

Hi,

I am K, 31 from Vietnam.

I am going to Paris for 1.5 year MBA course from this August.

My school is in La Defense. I will go there with my tiny pocket and Paris is too expensive for sure.

Thus, I am looking for one accommodation as cheep as possible. Do you have any advice?

Thanks,

K

Contact your university about housing. Certainly they could be of help.

Thanks. I contacted them who sent a list of accommodation surrounding there. All are around 400-600E/month which I can not bear. Thus, I am looking for some tips/experience from this site.

Perhaps you may find another student to share accommodation with you. Is it possible they could put you in communication with other incoming students? Many students may have the same problem.

Thank you very much. They do not have it till July (not all students confirm their participation till Jul). No idea how to survive there :))

Perhaps booking a hostel near there until you can sort out housing? What a worry. I would definitely keep corresponding with the university. It must have many places near that rent to students since it is quite a large university.

Sometimes they let students get together in advance (they do in the U S) so you can plan ahead together.

Any way to save more money?

I would look into couchsurfing until July when you may be able to get this sorted out.

If you Google "student accommodation" you should at least get an idea of prices areas etc ...

Thank you. I always love tripadvisor:D. All information are valuable to me.

Of course, there are some "quite cheap" accommodation i can search.

My point is "as cheap as possible" 'cause i will go there with really limited budget.

Hi StCirq, are you in paris?
