Housing allowance

CAF is a family benefits organization. As a student renting an apartment in France, you are eligible for a housing allowance - called “Aide Personnalisée au Logement” (APL) - provided by this organization. The amount depends on the location of the apartment, its surface area and the revenues of the student.

To apply online - www.caf.fr - you need:

  • Your complete address in France.
  • Proof of income (scholarships, wages, etc.).
  • Your French bank details.
  • Your email address.

 

When the online application is done, you need to set up a file. The following documents need to be joined to the file:

  • A « demande d’aide au logement » form, completed by you.
  • A housing attestation, completed by your landlord or CROUS.
  • Civil status documents (i.e ID, passport, birth certificate or family record book).
  • Non-EU nationals: a student visa + a copy of your passport showing the “OFII” stamp.
  • EU nationals: a proof of student status + a copy of your European health insurance card + a formal statement of sufficient resources.

/!\  Every documents from your country MUST be translated into French by a SWORN TRANSLATOR.
Please note that there is a waiting period (“délai de carence”) of 1 month. CAF will NOT pay the allowance for the first month spent in the apartment.
