CEA offers different types of housing in Aix-en-Provence. Every attempt will be made to match each student's preferences with their housing options; however, housing preferences cannot be guaranteed as roommate and housing assignments are based upon availability, date of confirmation, and other factors. We encourage you to apply early as it will assist us in organizing your housing arrangements. The standard housing is shared apartments but you can also request homestays - there is a price difference between these 2 types of housing.
