SKEMA Business School's Lille campus is situated near the Lille Flandres train station and the Euralille shopping centre.
The school assists its current and future students to search for accommodation via its online platform for housing service – housing.skema.edu. It can be accessed through:
- The Welcome Pack: The details are sent by e-mail to newly-enrolled students after they receive a confirmation of admission
- YEP (Your Education Portal) for current students
- The Housing Platform: Various offers are posted here
- The official Facebook group called SKEMA Housing
Students who would like to live in a university residence in Lille can make a request a few months before the start of the school year. Start your search from the list of residences near the campus.
Please note that students may need to have a guarantor – a person or an organisation that will guarantee the payment of the rent and bills in case of default on your part. Their financial resources must correspond to at least three times the amount of the rent.
The mission of CROUS (Regional centres of university and academic services) is to assist in improving students' life and work conditions. Apartments in university residences are usually managed by CROUS and are the cheapest lodging option. The CROUS of Lille manages 9,345 places for accommodation, ranging from furnished rooms to three-room flats in 35 different student residences. They are allocated according to an applicant's social criteria (parents' income, distance, and so on). The application should be submitted online between January 15 and April 30. Complementary admissions are made during summer and at the beginning of the school year based on remaining places.
