How do you secure an appartment in france without a french guarantor?
So I've been reading online that you need a french guarantor to be able to rent a place for a year in France. I am doing a year abroad as part of my french degree and hope to go to Grenoble. However I don't want to houseshare as I live with my boyfriend (who's account i am on now) and my dog and it wouldn't really be ideal for house sharing and we have the money to rent somewhere of our own for the year but not the french guarantor.... if we paid up front for the year would they waiver the need for a guarantor? Or are there any ways that the universities can act as a guarantor? - I will be coming from the university of Kent in the UK. Any help would be great thankyou!
