Accommodation during the University Programme

As Paris is hosting the 2024 Olympic Games, housing is in exceptionally high demand

In 2024, students will have the incredible opportunity to live and study in the host city of the Olympic Games! Students, athletes, delegates and fans will be travelling from all over the world to be a part of this historic moment in Paris.

Sciences Po is an urban campus without residences on site, and the Summer School offers housing options for students with external partners. Due to the influx of international athletes and delegations arriving in Paris next summer, housing is in exceptionally high demand and there are limited spaces available for Summer School students. 

Students can choose to: 

  • Reserve housing directly with our partner Atome My French Homestay
  • Reserve housing directly with our partner Colonies
  • Find accommodation on their own - students will be able to secure housing individually if they book early

We recommend securing housing as soon as you have been accepted into the programme and paid the deposit reserving your spot. The Summer School team remains dedicated to helping students as much possible, to ensure that they are able to visit Paris this summer and be part of the incredible adventure that awaits! 

More information for our housing partner and alternative accommodation options can be found below. 

Atome – My French Homestay

Upon admission, students will be able to book a room directly with Atome My French Homestay.

The host families have been carefully chosen by Atome My French Homestay. All of these families speak English and are eager to welcome international students in their homes! Families are either couples with children (from 5 to 25 years old) who want to share a rich cultural experience, or couples whose children no longer live with them, but who really enjoy the presence of students. These homes usually have one or two private bedrooms. All apartments are located in safe neighbourhoods in Paris, within a 30-minute commute to Sciences Po. 


  • June session: June 2nd - June 28th
  • July session: June 30th - July 24th


  • June session: 1492 €

Except for liability insurance (compulsory), there are no extra costs.

I would like to reserve a room with Atome for the June session.

Each studio has a double bed, a desk, storage space, a small kitchen area, and a private bathroom.
