It is very difficult to find housing upon arrival in Lille, so we strongly recommend international students to make sure that they have housing before they arrive in France.
Housing and Catering on Universite Catholique de Lille are managed by the AEU organization (“AEU” standing for “Association d’Entraide Universitaire”).
AEU is home to 5 main services (catering, housing, health, social issues and sports), assists students in their daily life and continually develops new projects for them.
University dorms are available on Universite Catholique de Lille campus. They are managed by the AEU organization. Please check their website in English for more information. 11 dorms are available for exchange students. International Students registered for a study period at Universite Catholique de Lille may refer to the “International Students” section of our website for more information on how to apply for a room in a university dorm.
The university being located in the city, there are other possibilities of housing in the private sector for students who would prefer this type of accommodation. Here are some links for students wishing to find housing by themselves:
