Pre-departure formalities


Non-European students are required to have a student visa. Once admitted, JUNIA will assist you as much as possible in obtaining your student visa, however we have no control over the visa application process. This process will be managed by the French diplomatic office nearest you and varies for each country. Find and contact your Campus France office to learn more about the process.

Once you have arrived in France, there are administrative procedures for validating your visa, allowing you to stay in France and travel in the Schengen Area. We provide assistance for these procedures, which are done with the regional administrative office, the Prefecture. Learn more about this process on the Prefecture website.

Housing options

As soon as you have been admitted, it is important to start your housing reasearch. Arriving without any housing reservation could be challenging and expensive. Thus, we strongly advise you to book an accomodation before arriving. We are here to help you during this process.

Find out some documents that will help you find an option below.

ALL Student Residences

We recommend that students book a room in a Lille Catholic University Residence Hall. These residences are managed by an organisation named ALL and are the most convenient way for our students to find housing in Lille.

ALL will require a garantor. You can use the free rental garantee VISALE if you are eligible or Garantme (paying service).

Students are responsible for reserving a room, so be sure to apply as soon as possible.



Studapart is an all-inclusive online housing platform. Access hundreds of exclusive offers near campus but also throughout France during your search for internship: studios, flatshares, rooms in private homes. Studapart offers personalised support throughout your rental and exclusive offers for JUNIA students: verified ads and secure payment, simplified rental file & 100% online procedures.
