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.
