Housing
Type of housing: Residence Hotel Curial (privately-owned)
Arranged by: Host university
If returning, I would choose: Apartment/House
Why?
The Curial was the only thing offered to most British students, cost 440€/month and there were several problems - e.g. the internet connection was free, but rarely worked for some people; also the "kitchenette" didn't have an oven or freezer, and several rooms were smaller than others paying the same amount. It being a "hotel", it was difficult to have parties etc in the Curial, because there were non-students staying there, and the owners were very strict on noise. If you're already going there don't worry too much, it's easy to meet other students there, and I enjoyed that, but I wish the surroundings had been different. If it's possible, I would recommend that you avoid a privately-run residence like the Curial and, if you can, come to Chambery beforehand to arrange an apartment/house (perhaps with fellow Erasmus students from your university, if any). It's certainly what I would have done, and although you're not living near other students, you'd get more space and wouldn't have to deal with the wardens/'helpful' people who run halls.

Savoie Uni itself doesn't seem to provide much student accommodation; there are a few buildings on the Chambery campus. It's cheap (often less than 150€/month), but I think it's usually French students who get this, and it's much more likely foreign students would be offered a more expensive privately-run residence.

It was not very well organised, but that may be due to the fact that it was the month of August.

Housing
Type of housing: Apartment/House
Arranged by: Independently - My choice
If returning, I would choose: Apartment/House
Why?
I enjoyed living independently as it allowed me to immerse myself in the culture by experiencing every day life of paying for bills and rent. Finding yourself accomodation can often be cheaper than student halls and you have more control over the area in which you choose to live.

Housing was located very close to the university which was useful for term time. It was fairly expensive but did include all amenities, making it a simple option for people who might not necessarily had much experience of living away from home. There was limited private accomodation but a very useful housing service provided by the municiple which would help find something specific to your needs. I found an appartment by spotting a poster in a shop window for the flat above and I found it perfect for my needs; central, relatively cheap and sharing with another student.

I was not given a choice to be based on campus, and compared to British University housing systems I found them to be very unhelpful. In my view priority for housing should be related to the distance travelled to the university.
