There is a variety of accommodation options for you to choose from:
• CROUS university residences
• Private university residences
• Apartments (via real estate agents or privately)
• Share houses
• Homestays
Exchange students have access to the Lyon III International Association that provides students with assistance in finding accommodation in the CROUS university residences, private residences or with a host family.  It serves as a useful link between students and the residences.
