This residence “Le Valentin” was completely restructured and opened its doors to students in 1994. It is located downtown, 2 minutes from all amenities, and 10 minutes by subway from the university campus.
It has 34 single rooms spread over 5 floors, including 5 rooms (boys) on the ground floor, 8 rooms on the 1st (girls), 2nd (boys) and 3rd floors (girls), and 6 rooms in the attic (girls ).
The shared spaces, consisting of a big equipped kitchen and a living room, are on the ground floor. Sanitary facilities are available on each floor. These have 2 separate rooms, one with 3 shared shower cubicles (set next to each other), and another with 2 toilets.
A laundry room is available in the basement; it includes a washing machine and a tumble dryer.
A terrace is also available on the ground floor, accessible from the living room.
The FSLE provides – voluntary and not contractually – regular cleaning of the shared spaces by cleaning staff. However, the students are expected to ensure cleanliness by following the guidelines on the usage of shared spaces and waste disposal.
The rooms have sizes ranging from 8 to 20 m2.
The FSLE provides furniture, including a bed with bedding (down, cushion and sheets), a bedside table, a wardrobe and a desk.
The tenant must provide his kitchen equipment and towels. However, a certain amount is already in place and shared among the students.
