Finding accommodation in Troyes

Finding accommodation in Troyes is really easy, even for foreign students!

The University of Technology of Troyes is located 4 kilometers from the city center of Troyes.

  • Most students live in the city center and usually come to the university by bus (20 minutes) or by bike (20/25 minutes).
  • Troyes is quite a small city, but living in the city center enables students to enjoy night-life and to live in a comfortable and cheap accommodation.
  • Thanks to its small size, Troyes turns out to be a friendly, easy-going and safe place to live.
  • Several websites, real estate agencies and student networks make possible for the students to find the flat that will best suit their wishes!
NOTE: Students from UTSEUS should contact classmates currently studying in the UTT!

Arranging accommodation

The International Center of the UTT can book accommodation ONLY for the students coming from partner universities. To do so, students have to follow the procedure on the online application portal : students MUST read thouroughly and MUST agree with the “booking conditions” and then fill in their wishes.
  • Real estate partner agencies keep a part of their accommodations for the international students and the International Center of UTT is in charge of allocating the accommodations: by asking for the booking of an accommodation, students commit themselves in accepting the allocated accommodation.
  • The International Center does its best to respect students’ wishes but students must keep in mind that only a limited number of accommodations is provided.
  • The International Center notifies students about their accommodation's address by e-mail (specific procedure) around 1 or 2 weeks before the official arrival dates.
 WARNING: Upon arrival, a low-cost temporary accommodation may be necessary for a couple of days/weeks before entering the final accommodation.
