The CROUS asks students from non-European countries to provide the signature of someone who is warrant for you in case of damages or unpaid rent. It is called the deposit.
If you do not have family in France who can be warrant for you, here are some options:
- 1) Open a bank account at a partner bank of LMDE or Vittavi and subscribe to their additional health insurance ("mutuelle"). Thus, the bank can be warrant for you. Simply apply when opening the account.
- 2) Since 2010, the Région Midi-Pyrenees can be warrant for you for rents up to € 500.
