These are the people who help with student lodgings in Bordeaux.
http://www.crous-bordeaux.fr/logements/ My 4 children all went to Bordeaux University a few years ago. There were about 4000 university lodgings for over 30,000 students. Low income families have first priority. Most students rent unfurnished flats and furnish them with borrowed and cheap furniture, bought at shops like Conforama. Bordeaux is full of flat hunting students in the summer holidays. Not always easy. Ask the CROUS, estate agents, small ads. Need to pay a hefty deposit, which covers first months rent and damages. The damages bit should be returned at the end of the rental period if there is no damage to the flat.
I live about 2 hours from Bordeaux but we were in the catchment area for the University.
