Type of housing: On campus
Arranged by: Home university
If returning, I would choose: On campus
Why? I would definitely go with living on campus in residence. I had a great time, I became friends with lots of other international students as well as some French students.
Personal comments:
I stayed at the Valentine Charrondière and it was the best residence ever! Although you have to share a kitchen and breakfast room with 100 other residents, the atmosphere is very warm and fun. Also, it's located in a very central area, close to IESEG as well as other schools.

Start with the hot, smoky but always a party Latina Cafe on Rue Massena, then check out all the other clubs and bars along that street that is the hub of student night life in Lille.

FINAL COMMENTS

Make sure you get a Carte 12-25 from SNCF (Train company) if you come here. It will help you save quite a lot of money. Try to get a debit card that has a smart chip in it, it makes things more convenient. There are a lot of machines that will not except a debit/credit card with just a magnetic strip.
