Students at top French universities living in dilapidated hall of residence

Issued on:

At one university residency south of Paris, students are living among cockroaches, mould and in overall unhygienic conditions, despite studying at some of France’s top universities. The CROUS of Versailles, a state-run agency, offers financial aid and affordable housing to students, but some of the accommodation it provides is barely fit for purpose.

Some 70 students have signed a letter of complaint. The CROUS says it has already renovated a third of the rooms, but that’s little consolation for the students currently living in the dilapidated accommodation. Our France 2 colleagues report, with FRANCE 24’s Camille Nedelec.
