Accommodation and catering

First things first - where will you live, and where will you eat? Here is some information to help you.



Finding accommodation on a student budget

We are glad to assist you in finding accommodation possibilities, and can put you in contact with different on- and off-Campus student residences.

The public-sector student housing service is called the CROUS. They offer on- and off-campus residences at a reasonable price. 

CROUS Clermont-Ferrand

SIGMA Clermont has agreements with various private-sector housing agencies such as Stud'City, and our students can benefit from special tariffs. These student residences are all a short tram-ride away from our campus.


Another very useful resource is the national online buy-sell-rent-anything service, Le Bon Coin, where private individuals let out rooms and apartments (only in French, of course).
