    Thanks toCité'U, you can now apply for assistance online and download a CAF certificate.

    Loca Pass: help with the security deposit for a rental
    The Loca-Pass advance is a loan granted by Action Logement (formerly 1% Logement) to the tenant to finance the security deposit required by the owner (lessor). This loan is to be reimbursed without loan interest or file fees. To benefit from this loan, you must be under 30 years old or an employee or early retiree in the private sector (excluding agriculture).

    Mobili Jeune: financial aid for the rent of students on work-study programs
    Mobili-jeune is a housing subsidy that covers part of your rent during your work-study program. It is paid by Action logement. This aid is intended for young people under 30 years of age. In order to benefit from it, you must meet certain conditions, particularly in terms of resources.

    Visale guarantee: obtaining a deposit
    The Visale guarantee is a guarantee granted by Action logement to a student or a young person on a work-study program who wants to rent an apartment. In the event of unpaid rent or charges, Action logement pays the lessor the amounts due. Action logement is then reimbursed by the tenant.


    Lunch can be taken at the Centre municipal d'action culturelle, 89 boulevard Aristide Briand at the same price as in university restaurants (CROUS agreement) at the price of 3.30 € and 1€ for students with scholarships, upon presentation of their student card.

      Complementary health insurance Pass

      Students with scholarships or in financial difficulty, the Southern Region gives you a helping hand to finance your complementary health insurance with the Pass Mutuelles.

      It is not compulsory for students to take out a complementary health insurance policy. While some students can still benefit from their family's health insurance, others choose not to pay the monthly cost of complementary health insurance, which often leads to a lack of care due to a lack of funds. It should be noted that the price of a complementary health insurance varies according to the profile of the insured, young or old, with existing pathologies, etc. Also, single students who receive emergency student aid can apply for complementary health aid. This aid allows them not to pay for doctor and dentist consultations, treatments, nursing care and hospitalisation costs.

      Situation of disability

      Aix-Marseille University's disability mission welcomes and supports students with physical, sensory or psychological disabilities, dyslexia or a long-term disabling health problem. It offers measures adapted to each student.
