Apply for financial support with help from the social welfare officer

Non-grant students and grant holder students in other grades who are in precarious situations may claim financial support by compiling a file with the social worker associated with their university course. This means that the Office for Coordinating the Social Security of the RATP (CCAS) will be involved with regard to transport.

Night services (2 bus lines and 2 tram lines) every day from 9 p.m. to 11:30 p.m. (Sunday, Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday) and 9 p.m. to 12:30 a.m. (Thursday, Friday and Saturday)

Noctambus service (https://www.citura.fr/fr/noctambus/78)

The Noctambus service has connected student hubs – campus and residences – to night life since 2015. It has a route of 11 km that covers 26 stops (the line connects the Moulin de la Housse site and the Croix Rouge campus and the city centre). In addition to a driver, a conductor welcomes students and helps them on board the bus for the entire journey. All CITURA tickets are valid on Noctambus, at the same price as during the day.

The Noctambus service runs from 11 p.m. to 6 a.m. (from Thursday to Saturday and the day before national holidays)
