Student Services


Various aids are available to help students find accommodation

Hugo COUSIN is the student of the ENSAIT reference housing for the year 2020. 

You can contact him by email at : or by phone at : 06 95 06 53 60

Its role is to help students who come to take the oral exams from May to July to find accommodation in the North.
Then, he accompanies these same students in their search for housing for the September school year by sharing announcements or good deals! 

The main role of the CROUS is to improve the living conditions of students, in particular by offering assistance to students in their everyday life to facilitate the success of their studies. The CROUS is known in particular for finding accommodation for students. 

You can contact the CROUS in Roubaix: 28 place de la liberté – 59100 Roubaix Telephone: 
Days and opening hours: Monday, Tuesday and Thursday from 9h to 12h30 and from 13h30 to 16h30. Closed at 4pm on Friday.

The Visale aid allows to set up a visa certified by Action Logement constituting a proof of unpaid rent guarantee to be attached to the rental management file. Visale replaces the former Crous-Lokaviz Student Rental Guarantee (Clé), however the conditions of accession and the modalities are the same. The whole process is to be done on the dedicated Visale platform. Be careful to make a distinction between Visale (deposit service) and home insurance – which is compulsory and must be included in the rental file. On the other hand, you can cumulate Visale with the other classic housing aids such as the APL of the CAF. Once these applications have been made and the lease signed, it is up to you to carry out the classic procedures for your accommodation, putting water, electricity or gas meters into service if necessary. 

Students' union

ENSAIT places the quality of its extra-curricular life at the heart of its integration process. These moments of encounter maintain the spirit of cohesion and sharing. They encourage links between the engineering students of the different classes throughout the course!

Student life is mainly organised by three main unions :


The students' union (BDE



The arts' union (BDA)


The sports' union (BDS)


The Buddy System: our welcoming culture

Each international student receives an Ensait  Buddy before arriving in France.

This connection is made via the Buddy System managed by the international section of the BDE – Bureau Des Etudiants (students’ union).

This Buddy System aims to set up a privileged relationship between a newcomer international student and an ENSAIT student even before arriving in France. This allows a personalized and individual welcome, an accompaniment in certain steps, a helping hand for the courses etc.

It is also a chance for the ENSAIT student to be exposed to different cultures and languages before her/his period abroad.

It is a win-win experience rich in exchange and sharing.
