Student residences in La Rochelle

When looking for accommodation in La Rochelle, we advise you to start with student residences. Some are private, others are managed by the French state: this is the case of the CROUS residences. They are very affordable (about €200/month in the provinces, €400 in Paris) but you have to apply in advance: there are more requests than places available.
