Welcome to Lille! Northern France, a warm land where “people have in their heart the sun they don’t have outside”, as was singing the singer Enrico Macias. Lille’s lifestyle has a lot to offer, especially when in higher education. As the third national university centre, the Lille metropolis brings 108,000 students together!

We tried to compile a maximum of useful information for when you arrive to the Flanders’ capital. But note that it’s not a complete list. Don’t hesitate to listen to your friends’ advice.
