Student accommodation in Rouen in the heart of the metropolis

Rouen, a booming student city


Rouen is a large French city located in the north of the country,
in the Seine-Maritime department. It has about 110,000 inhabitants. Rouen is
regularly headlined by cities for its quality of life. Rouen was
recently ranked as the 19th best student city in France. It is a very lively
and a culturally rich city. It offers access to a wide range of museums, all for
free. During the holiday periods the city offers numerous shows and music
festivals. It’s a city that is very well served. It offers trips by tram, bus,
and allows a direct connection with TER. It is located 1h30 from Paris by TGV,
1h30 from Caen.
The status of a student city is a real asset for Rouen, both demographically and economically. Rouen schools and universities are the source of many jobs in the metropolitan area. The higher education and research offer offered by establishments in Rouen explains the attractiveness of the city. It offers a wide variety of high quality training courses. It is home to the University of Rouen Normandie which has 6 sites located throughout the city and EM Normandie .

The city of Rouen is starting to be one of the largest university centers in France. It has more than 44 000 students. These students represent almost 15% of the metropolitan population. Rouen is also an international student city. 10% of students in Rouen are international students. In a context of increased competition between university centers, access to housing is a criterion which strongly influences students in the choice of the place of their studies. The massive presence of students in a territory also has a direct impact on a city’s housing market.
More than 44 000 students seek a student apartment in Rouen each year, outside the parental home. So what are the types of accommodation popular with these French and international students? What average budget for a student rental in Rouen? In which districts? Studapart answers all these questions.

What type of accommodation for your stay in Rouen?

Flatshare in Rouen is a great success


Flatshare is increasingly demanded by students from the city of Rouen. 22% of Rouen students are in shared accommodation against 21% in the rest of France on average. A quarter of the students who leave the family home immediately turn to shared accommodation. This way of living allows students to live in larger, better equipped and better quality housing. It’s a way to be less isolated. And this for a lower cost: one can find a roommate in Rouen for an average around 407 €. While the rent for an entire home would be rather 543 €.


The student roommate in Rouen is also developing because it is interesting for owners by guaranteeing them better profitability. A 4-room apartment rented to a family earns € 900 while it can earn € 1,200 by being rented by the room to students. In the face of the colocation craze, more and more companies specialize in student residences and so-called “colocation” products. Most shared flats are made up of 2 or 3 students. The shared apartments in Rouen come from 80% of the private rental stock, in 3-room apartments.
