Living and studying in Limoges

Living and studying in Limoges

With nearly 200,000 inhabitants, Limoges is a metropolis in the Region of New Aquitaine that combines the advantages of a large city (high-level facilities) with the advantages of living in the countryside.

As the Tourists’ Office will tell you, as a student at the University of Limoges, you benefit from a lifestyle that few universities can offer: the most modern sports facilities; a broad range of cultural activities (with an excellent programme and a large student festival); a privileged living environment, fueled by the energy of a large city and totally unspoiled natural environment. Here, the air is clean, the water is clear and the city is green! On the same day, you can go to the university, canoe down a river just before enjoying a concert at Zénith music hall and round off the evening in town with your friends.

As a student-friendly city, well-known for its inexpensive cost of living, Limoges offers a lot of advantages, with campuses close to the city centre, efficient, regular public transportation, bike hires available to students and a large range of student clubs and associations to choose from.
