Student Life

What is around

What is around the campus?

As a future freshman, you may have questions concerning your new life. The Carrefour Market (supermarket) is only a 5 mins walk from the university, and if needed an Express Shop is even close to the campus and open till 00:00!

You may as well as go out of campus and buy some food. Some recommendations are:

  • Ninkasi (for good burgers and beers)
  • Univers cafe (for pizzas and kebab)
  • OXXO (more burgers and beers)

If you are craving for other food, you might go to Charpennes, Part-Dieu or even in the centre of Lyon. Part-Dieu being the biggest mall of Lyon, you just need to get on the tram station in front of your room to get there!

Lyon is a rich city with many cultural monuments. The most iconic building is the Basilique Notre-Dame de Fourviere, located very close to the ECAM campus where you will have a few classes during the three year course.
