Services

Housing services

International students in exchange programs can apply for CROUS university accommodation because the Direction of International mobilities has a number of reserved rooms. The rooms on the university campus are (sometimes but not always) smaller and less comfortable than a studio in town, but they have financial advantages: they are cheap, are exempt from the housing tax, and for electricity, gas or other utilities, no need to deal with the contract.

Library services

  • LILLIAD Learning center Innovation
  • The Learning center for health, which aims to link differentiated services and spaces in order to better meet expectations and reflect new practices in education and learning.
  • The Learning center for archaeology - egyptology - humanities and social sciences: a future multimedia center for document resources and knowledge dissemination, scheduled to open in 2022.

Mixed feeling
Anonymous rated 2 out of 5 stars

The administrative personnal is not the best, they give different information all the time. Certain teachers are really helpfull, some seem to not care at all.

A great language-related degree
Anonymous rated 4 out of 5 stars

The 3 universities of Lille have become 1 by 2018, this makes some processes such as getting help for papers-related problems a little but longer and you need to travel for longer but other than that, it helps you get access to a lot more services.

personal issue
Anonymous rated 3 out of 5 stars

This is an advanced learning centre and I am learning new courses. But due to french language barrier I would prefer to learn french before joining this university because course coordinator does not speak english and I do not speak french so it is difficult to communicate with her.
