Please find below a list of on- and off-campus housing options in Lille:
We will help you with the booking. Your contact for housing is Damien LEROUGE: housinglille@IÉ
Please note that it can be difficult to find housing quickly on arrival in September or January, so we greatly advise you to find housing prior to your arrival, and to apply for accommodation as soon as you have received your acceptance letter. Proving you have a confirmed housing in France will help some of you getting your student visa (mandatory condition). Securing housing before leaving will also contribute to help you enjoy the Orientation Seminar and your first classes without stress.

Below are a few hints regarding housing:

  • Please avoid arriving in Lille on a Sunday as agencies and landlords are not available. Some agencies are also closed on Saturdays (AEU).
  • Do not hesitate to check the location of an offer by googling it (as a reminder, IÉSEG is located 3 rue de la Digue, 59000 Lille).

Important Information About IÉSEG Residence

ERA-Cogénord is a real estate agency managing IÉSEG residence halls: it is not part of IÉSEG.
Application and all administrative procedure are done through FONCIA.

Private Residences

In some cases, the landlord / agency may ask for a “garant” living in France (relative guarantying the payment of the rent in case you can’t pay anymore).
We suggest not being too “picky” in choosing a place to stay: you may find something which is 30/45 minutes from the campus, but Lille is built at a very human scale, you can easily walk to reach your destination or use our efficient network of transportation (cheaper rates for students). Don’t hesitate to contact us for advice.

Useful Websites for Other Lodging (room sharing, ads from private owners etc.)

In case your applications with the previous options have not been successful, you may look for apartment sharing or individual rooms on the following websites:

It is not always easy to find apartments to share. If you find one, they are usually for 2 or 3 people maximum.
In case you have doubts on the reliability of an offer, please do not hesitate to ask our coordinator’s advice: every semester, a few students are about to be the victims of some swindlers…

University Student Residence Halls

Association d’Entraide Universitaire (AEU – University Student Services Association)
AEU offers several student residences in the university neighbourhood, details for each residence are available on the website. Those residences are usually quickly booked by French freshmen and international students, so apply in April/May for fall semester and September/October for spring semester at the latest.

Association d’Entraide Universitaire (AEU)
  • Address : 47 boulevard Vauban – 2ème étage, 59000 LILLE
  • Tel.: +33 (0)3 20 15 97 78 / Fax : +33 (0)
  • Contact : Mrs Anne Lemaître –
  • Web: (English available)

Important: your application will be processed only once the fee has been paid to AEU (this fee will be reimbursed if no room is available).
As the AEU received many demands, it has previously been unable to cope with all housing applications. In consequence, we believe they will have only few opportunities for next semester. Thus, we advise you to have a look at the other options as well.

Emergency Solution

In case you have no confirmed housing at the end of June for fall semester or at the end of November for spring semester, we highly recommend you to book a minimum of 10 days in one of the following options. You will cancel these bookings once you have secured housing for the semester/year.
