Université d’Angers is located in the Anjou region of France, north west of the Loire Valley. Being just 45 minutes from Nantes and 1 hour 30 minutes from Paris by train, Angers is easily accessible and ideally located for exploring other regions of France. Mostly a student city, Angers offers a mixture of typical French night-life, historically rich street-scapes and great shopping opportunities. There are a wide range of accommodation options available to exchange students, from residence halls on campus to private flats. Availability for rooms on campus are limited, so students are encouraged to apply as early as possible but there is also plenty of housing available in the city.
