Good to know

You can use the Glossary to better understand the words such as bail*, chauffage individuel*, chauffage collectif*, charges locatives*, caution solidaire*... used in the accommodation advertisements.

Do not hesitate to use the tool « routes » on the website of the public transportation of Lyon. This will allow you to know the time you will need to go from an accommodation to each campus of the université Lyon 2.  

When you arrive in Lyon, if you have not found an accommodation yet, we will provide you with a computer, internet access and a telephone at the International Office.

A proof of housing insurances will be required by the landlord. The student insurances (SMERRA, LMDE) and the banks offer this insurance. It usually costs between 30€ and 60€. 

ATTENTION : Never take or leave an accommodation without signing an état des lieux* (inventory and statement of state of repair). Be really careful when you make this document.  

When you arrive in Lyon, if you have not found an accommodation yet, do not forget to book a temporary accommodation. A list of the main temporary accommodation is available on the document « Info logement - hébergement temporaire » (in French).
