Flatshare
France

Experience a flatshare in Aix-en-Provence.


The south of France is a dream destination for many, including students and young professionals who long to join a privileged destination. If the Aix-en-Provence region particularly attracts you, know that new residence programs have been emerging for some time.

Students and young professionals: why live in the south of France?

Are you looking to further your studies in the south of France, specifically in Aix-en-Provence? It must be said that this region offers many advantages to students and young professionals. Firstly, the climate and quality of life are worth mentioning. How can one resist a flatshare in Aix-en-Provence, at the heart of a city with a human scale and a dynamic vibe? Nearly a quarter of the local population consists of students, totaling 35,400 young people in education. Additionally, the sports and cultural offerings complement the vibrant nightlife perfectly.

Next, let's highlight the impressive range of available courses, especially at Aix-Marseille University. The site is ideally located in the city center, fully integrating student life into the city's fabric. This makes commuting much easier for young people looking for accommodation in Aix-en-Provence.

What types of student accommodations are available in Aix-en-Provence?

As an alternating or higher education student, you should know that the immediate region of Aix-en-Provence has an international character. It welcomes over 55,000 French and international students each year. It is not uncommon to see numerous real estate programs spring up to properly accommodate such a diverse population. The majority (45%) of young professionals are looking for a studio or a one-bedroom apartment (T1). Additionally, 20% of students are also seeking a two-bedroom apartment (T2).

However, many students also opt for flatsharing. Indeed, nearly 20% of students prefer to live with others, for various understandable reasons (shared rent, need for companionship, and desire to make friends for foreign students, for example). To meet these increasingly growing demands for student flatshares in Aix-en-Provence, new real estate programs are emerging. Beyond student residences and temporary rental listings, there are national initiatives capable of offering suitable and personalized flatsharing solutions. This is what Colonies, the student mobility assistance platform, aims to do.

What is the Colonies program in Aix-en-Provence?

Colonies is a unique and original initiative in terms of flatsharing in downtown Aix-en-Provence. Present throughout France, it welcomes new students in a setting that allows them to make connections serenely, while benefiting from conditions conducive to their studies. Each of the rooms offered has undergone complete renovation, in collaboration with architects and interior designers.

The advantage of flatsharing through Colonies is twofold: not only do students benefit from a furnished private space (ranging from a simple room to a two-bedroom apartment), but they also enjoy a shared living space, particularly spacious and generous. It is the ideal solution for joining together and relaxing with flatmates after a day's work. Naturally, the selection of flatmates is very strict: harmony between residents is essential for the platform's facilitators, who seek to match similar profiles.
