Thomas Jefferson School of Law

Nice ProgramNice Program


Students are free to make their own housing arrangements in Nice. However, Thomas Jefferson School of Law has arranged for discounted student housing at three residence facilities in Nice. Each of these locations offers basic but comfortable accommodations, including a fully-equipped kitchen, bathroom, linens and towels (changed weekly), satellite TV, central air conditioning, and telephones. Laundry facilities are available in the buildings and in nearby laundromats; fax service is available at the reception desks. Rooms at the three residences vary in size, and some may not be as large as American hotel rooms.


Additional information about housing arrangements in Nice, including detailed instructions for making reservations and payment, and for help with finding roommates, will be made available to students who have registered for the program. Each residence has a very limited number of rooms available, so students are advised to make housing arrangements early through Thomas Jefferson School of Law.


Students who elect to stay in program-organized housing will check in on Saturday, June 20, 2015 and check out on Friday, July 17, 2015. The discounted rates indicated are only available for the duration of the program.

Cost of housing

The cost, based on occupancy from June 20 to July 17, 2015 for Adagio Nice Magnan will vary, depending on the number of roommates and type of room selected. Basic room rates, plus tax (1 Euro per day per person), are indicated below. Charges such as telephone, laundry, etc., are additional. Note that the number of rooms in each category is limited; we will do our best to accommodate each student’s housing preference, but ask that students be flexible, as we cannot guarantee that a particular location or room choice will be available. Housing is on a first-come, first-served basis. A credit card is required to reserve your room with payment for your full stay is due upon check-in. Housing on the French Riviera during high season is expensive and difficult to find if you wait until the last minute.
