Personal recommendation
Try to get in touch with as much local French students as you can! They're friendly but not always keen on temporary friendships.

The rent was very low because of the State's financial support At home I travelled free with my student travelling card, but in France you have to pay. On the other hand,I received a monthly warrant for not travelling at home (I requested that before I parted).

Personal comments
lots of international students and French speaking Africans, very mixed cultural backgrounds. Rooms were small (9 square meters) and had no kitchen (no fridge) or toilet. Toilets and showers were shared and well maintained, relatively clean. Supermarket on 5 min. walk. University not far away either (10 min. bike). Subway station very nearby. Some rooms (including mine) had nasty cog roaches.
