Who may stay at Césal ?

Everyone may stay in our private residences. Our accommodation solutions will suit students looking for an individual studio or flatsharing, but also professors, workers and so on. You can stay in our residences for one night or for years, depending of your needs. Upcoming residence Le Mail (which will open by the beginning of 2020) will provide accommodations tailored for families.


What about short stay for professionals ?

Like staying in a hotel we provide accommodation fitted for a short stay. Our solutions are especially designed for professionals. For example if you are planning a seminar for your company near our residence, we will be glad to greet your team.
Feel free to contact us by filling the contact form and we will offer a solution which suits your needs.

How to come at Césal ?

Public transport:

The campus is served by the bus 91.06 and the bus 9, at the bus stop Joliot-Curie:

  • The bus 91.06 links the campus to the train line RER B and RER C at the station Massy-Palaiseau.
  • The bus 9 links the campus to the train line RER B at the station Le Guichet.


The campus is served by route N118 at exit 9 (Centre universitaire – Le Guichet, Gif-sur-Yvette).

Free parking lot on the campus. You can rent a personal spot in an underground parking for 15€ per month.


Can I bring my own furniture ?

We provide fully equipped accommodations so you do not need to bother bringing your own furniture. Of course you still have the ability to add your own furniture (an armchair or a coffe table for example) so you feel like being home. When leaving the residence, you will have to take away the pieces of furniture you brought.

Please notice that you are not allowed to add heavy household appliance. Drilling walls (to hang up extra shelves for exemple) is completely forbidden.


What happens to the security deposit ?

When arriving at Césal for a long stay, you pay a security deposit. We give you back this amount within the 2 months following your departure date, if the check-in and check-out inventories match (meaning you did not damage your room during your stay, considering natural wear though). Depending of this observation, we may fully or partially keep the security deposit for repairing the damage you caused in your room. Notice that this situation will not occur if you take good care of your room.
