As France's second largest city and with a population of over 1.5 million, Lyon is only a two hour TGV train ride from Paris. Within equal traveling distance of Lyon are the French Alps and the Mediterranean Sea. Lyon has everything one would expect to find in a big city: theaters, cinemas, museums, art galleries, an opera house, shops, cafes, and restaurants. The city center is compact, and the countryside is hardly more than a half hour away. Public transportation within Lyon is very convenient, with buses, trams, and the metro.


Student housing is only available in apartments by contract. After being accepted into the program, all students will be required to coordinate their housing preferences with the Lyon 3 housing coordinator. A housing deposit, which must be sent by wire-transfer, will be required in order to secure a spot within the student residences.
