LIVE IN LILLE
Welcome to Lille, a student city at the crossroads of Europe, the capital of the Flanders region! Lille’s exceptional location is ideal to enable you to travel from… but even without travelling, there are plenty of things to discover within the city!
A STUDENT CITY AT THE CROSSROADS OF EUROPE
The university is located in the green and cosmopolitan Vauban district in the heart of Lille.
Lille is a large and dynamic metropolis at the crossroads of Europe. Thanks to the TGV (French high-speed rail service), the Channel Tunnel and a dense highway network, you can get to Paris and Brussels in less than an hour, to London in one hour 20 minutes and to Amsterdam in under three hours!
BIG CITY ADVANTAGE, SMALL CITY ATMOSPHERE
Lille enjoys all of the conveniences of being at the centre of an urban zone with a population of 2 million, yet remains a “human-sized” university city with 250,000 inhabitants. Visitors can get around easily on foot or by bicycle. Public transport also offers the metro, the tramway and many bus lines running frequently and late into the night.
Lille is a city of history, art and culture which is more dynamic than ever!
