Only a few weeks left before the start of the academic year… And this period can be a sign of stress for students who have still not found a home for the start of the 2022 academic year. Toulouse (Haute-Garonne), groups and existing good plans to allow you to find this famous sesame. Here is a list that may help you:
#1. Oh ! my student apartment
The association for the housing of young people in Occitania, “Oh! my student apartment”directory over 1,500 student accommodation in 9 residences near schools and university centers in the city. The advantage of these accommodations: they are under agreement PLA, are not subject to the financial resources of the parents, do not generate agency fees. There are, among others, the Envol residence located near the University of Toulouse Capitole 1 and Toulouse Business School (Compans Caffarelli district), as well as the Cap Juby residence in the ZAC of Montaudran Aerospace.
Contacted, “Oh! mon appart’ Etudiant” indicates that he has accommodation left for the start of the school year “in colocation on T2 and T3″.
#2. Housing with seniors
It’s a practice that is growing more and more, so why not you? Seniors provide a room to receive a young person during the year. A device that provides company for the elderly while providing accommodation for cheaper rates for young people.
In Toulouse, we find among others the association “Better Together Toulouse” who provides this service. She makes you fill out a questionnaire, then organize an appointment to meet a senior who “matches” you. If the deal works out, you can plan your move. The accommodation offered by the association is eligible for APL, and it is up to you to set expectations with the owner of the place.
“Seniors are part of their requests, generally, they only want company. But some also want help with other daily tasks. At this point, it is up to the young person to say if he is ok or not for that. The rent is commensurate with the services requested. The more the senior wants companionship and help, the lower the rent.”
The association guarantees follow-up for both parties throughout the rental period. On its website, 7 apartments are currently available in and around Toulouse for prices ranging from 80 to 250 euros.
#3. Facebook groups
What also works a lot are ads on Facebook groups: Roommate Toulouse | The Roommates Card, Toulouse Location / Flatshares // The walls have ears… There are many announcements there, and that too throughout the year. All you have to do is get in touch with the person who placed the ad and make a visit. Be careful all the same with the profile of the owner, because the offers are not all sincere.
#4. Slightly more expensive student accommodation
For those who really have trouble finding accommodation, and who have a large budget, student hotels are springing up in the pink city. Among them, the residence The Kley in Compans Caffarelli offers 57 student accommodation with common area: gym, bike parking, events, entertainment, and even a big screen TV with PlayStation. Work rooms and a rooftop are also available. Price level, the cheapest rooms are from 550 euros per month.
In September, Student hotel, a giant hotel for students with a kitchen, a gym, and even a swimming pool, will open its doors in Compans Caffarelli. Here, on the other hand, it will be necessary to count around 800 euros per month for the room and the services of the establishment.
#5. Bonus: the good Bobby furniture plan
Since the search for accommodation is sometimes not the only difficulty that a student may encounter, we are also talking to you here about a good furniture plan. Policeman, it is a service launched by two Toulousaines, Pauline and Paula. It allows students to furnish their studio or apartment with second-hand furniture. The furniture comes from individuals and is in good condition. You can see them and make your choice on Bobby’s website.
As a bonus, the two friends even offer delivery directly to your home for an additional 25% on the price of the item.
