- Accommodation in Paris (photo: Lika Banshoya)
Summer School students have the option to obtain accommodation through the programme, at additional cost, or to find housing on their own.
Accommodation through Sciences Po
In 2019, the Summer School offers two official housing options:
- Comforts of Home – Student apartments for the June and July sessions
- Cité Internationale Universitaire de Paris (CIUP) – Student residence for the June and July sessions
More information for each option can be found below. Please note that different housing options have different dates for check-in and check-out.
Please note that space is limited for the various housing options and that rooms may be reserved on a first-come, first-served basis. Students who wish to reserve housing through the Summer School are thus recommended to apply early. Only upon admission will students be able to sign up for their preferred housing option, through the Summer School online platform.
Comforts of Home – student apartments
The Summer School works with Comforts of Home, a leading European provider of student housing, to place students in Parisian apartments located in desirable residential areas across the city. Each Comforts of Home apartment features a fully furnished kitchen, a living room, and between two to four bedrooms. Students will have a shared bedroom for two, in which each roommate will have her or his own single bed. All apartments come fully equipped with living necessities: sheets, blankets, pillows, towels, utensils, ironing board, cleaning supplies, wireless internet and even a washing machine! Apartments will always have at least one bathroom for every five inhabitants. See some sample photos of Comforts of Home apartments.
The Comforts of Home staff will place students in apartments with other Summer School participants of the same gender and of a similar age. Students will learn of their exact apartment placement approximately three weeks before the start of the session. Most apartments will be located in the 7th, 14th, 15th or 16th arrondissements of Paris, approximately 30 minutes or less by metro or bus from the Sciences Po campus.
Comforts of Home 2019 information:
- Price for one session: 875 € for a shared room for standard dates.
- Price for two sessions: 1615 € for a shared room for standard dates.

CIUP - student residence hall
The Cité Internationale Universitaire de Paris is a unique site in Paris that serves as the largest provider of student accommodation in the region, with lodging for over 5,800 individuals. The CIUP is located approximately 30 minutes from Sciences Po at the “Cité Universitaire” stop on the RER B line, or the “Porte d’Orléans” stop on the metro line 4. Students travel from the CIUP to Sciences Po by metro, bus, or Vélib', the city’s bike share system.
All CIUP rooms are furnished, single rooms with a private bathroom. There is a shared kitchen on each hall. The CIUP provides sheets, blankets, and pillows, but students need to bring their own towels and utensils. Each room has a mini refrigerator and Internet access through an Ethernet cable.
The CIUP does not accept minors; students must be at least 18 years old at the time of the programme to stay at the CIUP.
