Final comments
To traveling with students is good to take a car for more persons to go to visiting country, to the common cities like paris we can go easly by train (its good to buy card for reductions..depend from region or universal one for ex. 12-25) but in other cases like Normandie or Bretagne is better to go with friends its always more fun and we can share the costs.

Personal comments
I was happy to have my own room but i was disappointed that there was no place to meet with other students, even it could be simple for example a kitchen to prepare meals together, there was no place to organise any events (like birthday or barbeque)there was always problems with noise and security,on the campus there were students restaurants opened for lunch and for dinner but nothing more...oh maybe i forgot about one automatic shop:)One of advantage to live there it was this that university was very close concerning lacation of campus-by metro it was 15 minutes from the center of city.
