Fees above do not include a Billing Administration Fee of 100€ per semester or any AUP administrative fees such as the Residential Program Contingency Fee. You can avoid the Billing Administration Fee by paying the entire year's or semester's accommodation fee by the first due date. We also provide full-year students the ability to pay the entire year's fee at once, saving an additional 2% on accommodation charges. If you are unable to pay by credit card, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for more details about bank wires or ACH transfers.
French ("CAF") housing subsidy
Students who obtain a "carte de sejour" and who don't have a high income may qualify for a French government housing subsidy granted by the Caisse d’Allocations Familiales (commonly called the "CAF subsidy"). The CAF is the sole entity that determines whether you qualify and how much the subsidy will be. Please note that students will only be eligible for subsidies on the rent portion of their housing payments, which does not include services fees. AUP's Housing Office can provide you with additional information on how to apply for this. Please contact email@example.com.
2018/2019 housing assignmentS
You will be sent a housing preferences survey by July 1. Comforts of Home and AUP take into account all applicants' preferences of housing type, roommates, and other aspects of their housing. We use these preferences as a guide, but cannot guarantee that we will be able to meet them in your housing assignment.
Your housing assignment will arrive approximately two weeks before the start of AUP Orientation: plenty of time to get a virtual “feel” for the area and meet your roommates.
Comforts of Home Housing Policy
All residents in Comforts of Home housing are bound by the Comforts of Home Housing Policy as part of their obligations to COH, AUP, and the AUP student community. Find the Housing Policy here. Students may be moved from one apartment to another, or removed from COH housing entirely, for failure to respect the Housing Policy.
