Vatel Bordeaux’s Student Affairs: essential help for foreign students
This support service for finding accommodation is all the more necessary for an international student. Indeed, it is very complicated to find an accommodation without a French guarantor. Student Affairs is a precious help for foreign students, since it accompanies the student from A to Z in his/her procedures and acts as a guarantor for them with the landlords.
This is a service offered by Vatel Bordeaux which is entirely free of charge: no financial contribution is requested from the students. Vatel Bordeaux only acts as an intermediary in order to facilitate the search, reservation and payment procedures.
By going through Student Affairs, students can complete their administrative procedures much faster and with much less stress. The department is an essential help for students to find accommodation, do certain administrative procedures such as validating VISAs, renewing residence permits, opening a bank account, acquiring a social security number, obtaining housing benefits from the CAF (French Healthcare System).
