As Sciences Po Lille does not have a campus, it cannot provide housing for incoming international students.
Thankfully, there is a very easy solution !
We have a private platform allowing our students to find an accommodation close to our campus.
You are a future international student of Sciences Po Lille, use the university housing platform on which you will be able to:
● Find a rental close to the campus
● Find your international or French roommate(s) and form shared rentals
● Find a room in a French family
Thousands of accommodations from private owners, halls of residence, real estate agencies, or rooms in private homes, are available close to Sciences Po Lille.
You will receive a code to log into the platform after you received your letter of admission.
Don’t hesitate to contact Emmanuel Buteau
The concept of this platform is for outgoing students to sublet their room for a short period of time to incoming students.
This website is free to use and it operates on a full student-to-student basis
What is the CROUS? For higher education in France the Centre régional des œuvres universitaires et scolaires (CROUS) is a regional organisation providing student bursaries, university halls of residence, foreign students reception, student cultural activities, and student cafeterias.
If you want to get some support, you can contact the Bureau des Internationaux (some local students who organize themselves to help you: firstname.lastname@example.org), they should be able and happy to give you relevant advices.
