An accommodation contract is very important for students of certain nationalities, as you may need this to apply for a visa or for a Residency Permit. There is a residence on-campus offering single rooms with private bathroom facilities (please note that the residence is not managed by SKEMA itself). Alternatively many SKEMA students decide to rent an apartment with the nearby coastal towns of Antibes and Juan les Pins particularly popular: 400 - 600 euros per month is the typical cost of renting outside the summer months with utility bills extra. Public transport between these two towns and the SKEMA campus is inexpensive and frequent. Further information about housing options can be found at
