STUDENT RESIDENCES : the right balance between privacy and sharing + meet French students

In a student residence, each student has his own room with a shower. Sometimes, toilets are included in the room. The kitchen is always shared. This is a good way to have your own privacy, but you have the opportunity to share your meals with other students. Unlike shared apartment, in student residences you live with French students (except in summer).
