UNIVERSITÉ DE LILLE
With its cultural vitality, its quality of life, its economic dynamism and its festive energy, the city of Lille is now the capital of the capital of a region of six million inhabitants (the Hauts-de-France region). Lille benefits from the advantages afforded by its unique setting.
Lille is perfectly situated at the crossroads of Northwest Europe with swift connections to Brussels (35 min), Paris (1h) and London (1h20) and within three to four hours from Amsterdam, Strasbourg or Frankfurt.
The medieval city of Lille is dotted with prestigious monuments that bear witness to its successive historical influences. You need to take a stroll through the narrow cobbled streets of « Vieux Lille » (the old town) and admire its flemish-influenced red bricks building.
