Our UXCO Student residences in Pau 

Pau, a warm and welcoming city with authentic charm 

Located in the heart of the Pyrénées Atlantique administrative region or ‘département’, Pau offers an ideal living environment, linking the Atlantic Ocean to the Pyrenees. UXCO Student chose this small city in the South West of France as a perfect location for student accommodation. 144 rental accommodation options are offered here, from studios to 2-bedroom apartments for flat-sharing.


The capital of its administrative district or département, the city of Pau now has more than 200,000 inhabitants. Ideally located at the foot of the Pyrenees, the city benefits from an exceptional geographic location, about an hour from the ski slopes and from the Atlantic Ocean. Crossed to the South by the river Gave, it also affords a breathtaking panoramic view of the Pyrenees mountain range. Its architecture features some medieval aspects alongside Victorian-era houses, English-style gardens and modern high-rise tower blocks. An attractive mixture of architectural styles that provides a distinctive character to the city centre.

Last but not least, to the South, you can see the vineyards on the slopes of the Jurançon, a hallmark symbol of the local gastronomy scene. Living in Pau also means living in a city rich in high-quality infrastructure: the gigantic Halles indoor market, the Zénith concert venue and the Centre des Congrès, or conference centre. A city at the cutting edge of the digital and sustainable development sectors, Pau is also an economic capital, the birthplace of many companies in the prestigious fields of geoscience, aeronautics, chemistry, agro-food and horse-breeding. It is also a candidate for winning the French Tech label, which will validate the region's digital credentials.



Gaining 1st place in the 2020/2021 l’Étudiant award scheme, based on the criteria of accommodation, budget and quality of life, Pau is a student city where you can live as well and have as much fun as in any of the big cities like Paris, Marseille or Bordeaux!

With almost 13,000 students a year, distributed across more than 36 higher education establishments, the city provides a wide variety of education options with more than 900 courses on offer in the sciences, the arts, IT and many other disciplines.

In terms of transport, a bus network serves the entire city and enables you to get to the city centre in just 15 minutes from our Fokus residence.  A preferential tariff specifically for students is offered for an annual cost of €139. For the more environmentally minded, no fewer than 160 bikes are available to rent, 24/7. For more information about the lines and a map of the network, please visit the website.

For entertainment, the Boulevard des Pyrénées and its many bars and restaurants is the ideal meeting place for all students. You may or may not be a rugby fan. In any event, every year the Hameau stadium hosts several matches in the Section Paloise progressing to the Top 14, evenings packed with entertainment on offer right across the city.

Last but not least, every year in April, Pau also organises a student rally event specifically for new arrivals in the city. A day during which teams of several young people go head-to-head to demonstrate their knowledge of the city of Pau, their musical culture, their creativity and their curiosity, in a no-holds-barred race right across the city during which they come up against numerous unlikely challenges. The day ends with an evening of electro music organised by a local group of musicians.

And out and about around Pau? Nestling at the foot of the Pyrenees, it is the ideal spot for winter sport enthusiasts, located just 45 minutes from the closest ski resorts. And for those who prefer beach sports, the Basque coastline and the cities of Bayonne and Biarritz are just an hour and a half away: ideal for a surfing and beach getaway with friends. Last but not least, for a city break or a shopping weekend, Toulouse and Bordeaux are also readily accessible by motorway.




Have you scoured the small ads sites on the Internet, and still haven't found an apartment to rent in Pau? No need to panic, UXCO Student most definitely has the perfect home for you!

Are you looking for a studio or a 2-room apartment with separate bedroom? Or a large 2-bedroom apartment for flat-sharing with your mates?  Or a fully-inclusive lease, à la carte services and a great flat-sharing atmosphere? If so, come to UXCO Student and find the apartment that best suits your needs in one of our 55 residences in France!

Located right in the heart of the university city of Pau, just 15 minutes from the city centre by bus, the Fokus residence offers you far more than just a study bedroom, but instead a genuine student apartment in a brand new residence, to live alone or with your mates.

144 rental accommodation options are offered here. You can choose between a cosy studio or a one-room apartment to feel right at home, with a sleeping area, a kitchenette and a private bathroom. A 1-bedroom apartment comprising a main room with a lounge area and a fully equipped kitchen, a separate bedroom and a private bathroom or a large 2-bedroom apartment with a spacious living room with kitchen, two separate bedrooms and a bathroom.

You can even choose which floor you wish to live on, from ground floor up to 3rd floor. Each accommodation unit is leased fully furnished and equipped, so all that you have to do is to unpack your bags and settle in. There is also a common room on the ground floor of the residence to enable all tenants to get to know their new neighbours.

Last but not least, there is a manager on the premises to enable you to move into your new apartment with complete confidence. A true host, he will organise a few events in the residence that will help you to feel that you really do live in a big flat-sharing community!
