Asylum application and residence permit application are not the only administrative tasks migrants have to deal with; day-to-day life requires housing access, health care coverage and so on.

In many cases the administration doesn’t provide all the necessary information, or access is difficult because of the language barrier.

The BAAM provides a social help room to assist with general administrative tasks, and a housing access help room specific to housing applications.

Summer 2018 information:

  • Social help room closes from July 17th to 15th August.
  • Housing help closes from July 17th to 15th August.

At the social help room, asylum seekers, refugees or undocumented people can find help to fill their administrative documents: medical insurance (CMU, AME), financial support (RSA, ADA). If you have questions about OFII, problems with metro card or debit card, come meet us.
