If you need help finding accommodation or if you are having difficulties, be aware that the CROUS offers more than 5,000 beds in Strasbourg student residences or apartments. You can also turn to intergenerational cohabitation: elderly people make part of their accommodation available to students. You can also inquire to find out if you are entitled to assistance such as ALS, APL or CLÉ.
Getting around Strasbourg
