Visale scheme (formerly Clé – Caution Locative Etudiante du Crous)

Following the update of the Crous Student Rental Guarantee (Clé) solution, this aid has become Visale from the Action Logement entity. The principle is simple and fully digital but does not replace housing insurance, which is mandatory when moving into unfurnished housing in France. It is a traditional guarantee for those who do not have someone in their entourage to take on this role. Visale then acts as a guarantor for the future tenant. This process should be completed before signing the rental contract, which often requires a guarantor for unpaid rents. Note that this free aid can be combined with other student aids from the French State.

Important: To ensure everything is functional on your first day in the accommodation, remember to set up water, electricity, and gas meters as soon as you receive the keys, as well as your internet line (you can compare providers here based on your needs) to ensure everything works from the moment you move in.


Colibree scheme

Colibree is an intergenerational cohabitation platform for students looking for a room to rent.
