You don’t have a guarantor living in France?

Studapart can replace your guarantor over the whole duration of your stay.

A guarantor is a person bringing financial security and attesting you are creditworthy. It’s difficult to rent a place in France without a French guarantor. In most cases, student residences and landlords require that your guarantor earns income in France.

You can get the Studapart Guarantee directly on the platform and add it to your rental application!
