Personal comments
In the country in general, I sometimes had difficulties with some of the slang, but as I continued to go out with the same people I learned the majority of it, and was not afraid to ask when I didn´t understand something. I had a harder time in my courses asking questions, but understood more of the lecture because the professor would repeat everything two or three times. It happened that sometimes even the French students around me would miss somethings as a couple of the professors were from Africa with very strong accents.

Universities in France don't have much of a "on campus-life", so student residents are mainly for the ones who can't afford an appartment in the city, considering it is really expensive. But if you're a foreign exchange student you can apply for a room in the residence, which shouldn't be too difficult to get. Although, don't expect something neet and luxurious like it could be in the US or Canada, most of the times your room is super tiny (9sq meters), shared bathroom and shared kitchen (sometimes maybe 2 floors above yours).

They are old, the showers and bathrooms are shared. It is pretty clean but I've seen better in bigger university dorms. All in all, it was an experience where I had to laugh or I was going to cry! The neighbours were ethnic like me, so that was great and I made a lot of friends. So yes, if I had to do it again, I would.

Why?
An apartment offers one the freedom to live on their own, and in accordance with their own desires. Also, they are generally better located than university housing.

My flat was spacious, but quite old and obviously run down. The landlady, however, was simpathetic and allowed me to repair the walls in my bedroom and to paint them. The flat was located ideally in a quiet neighborhood near the center.

Why?
I Would choose the same because ist was very nice to live in an appartement in the old city centre of Aix. There was so much going on in town that I was glad to live in a private house and not in a university residence with plenty of other students.
