Experience coliving in Lille! 



Coliving is a way of living that has been spreading in France for a few years. Coming from the United States, it straddles the line between shared accommodation and aparthotels. More advantageous than the aparthotel, but often less than shared accommodation, co-living generally offers an individual living space (a bedroom and a bathroom, sometimes a kitchen) and collective spaces and services (living rooms, coworking , gym, library, laundry, internet, streaming platforms, etc.). It is also organized around common values ​​and interests (ecology, way of life, professional activity, etc.). 



Lille, a heterogeneous architectural heritage


Lille is a city in northern France. It has nearly 235,000 inhabitants for an area of ​​34.51 km 2. It is the tenth most populated municipality in France, the fourth French metropolis. The creation of the city dates back to a charter of 1066 in which the city is named Isla. It is a city of art and history. It was also named European Capital of Culture in 2004. International crossroads, economically dynamic, Lille has become an attractive tourist destination, known for its pleasant living environment, its rich heritage and its important cultural life. It is recognized as being one of the largest student cities in France. By its cultural attractiveness, its many universities, but also its standard of living conducive to student life.

Lille has a very heterogeneous architectural heritage. We will be able to find buildings from the Romanesque Middle Ages such as the crypt of the Collegiate Church of Saint-Pierre. Also of the Gothic styles like the Saint-Maurice and Sainte-Catherine church. But also from the Renaissance (the Beaurepaire building) or more classic like the Saint-Etienne church.

Lille is considered a city where life is good, due to its decent standard of living. On average, in Lille, it takes around 4,500 euros/m2 to buy an apartment. Small surfaces in very good condition can sell for more than 5,000 euros/m2. Today, the metropolis has more than 235,000 inhabitants, ranking it 10th among the most populated cities in France.

The opportunity to be independent, while sharing your daily life and activities with other members. In Lille, 20% of the accommodations available for rent are co-living or shared accommodation.



What surface for my personal space in collective housing in Lille? 



As you will have understood, shared accommodation and co-living accommodation have some similarities! Regarding the surface, it often happens that co-living accommodation is in large apartments or houses. It is therefore rare for colivings to be T3, they are often T4. The average surface area of ​​a coliving house available in Lille measures approximately more than 70sq.m. They represent 15% of from Lille housing .



How much rent for a coliving or a roommate in Lille? 



For a personal space in a co-living room or a room in a shared apartment in Lille, expect more or less 400€/month.


Obviously, the more the accommodation is recent, offers comfort and equipment, the more the rent budget increases. It is necessary to take into account the layout and the surface of the property.

Coliving is still a very new type of accommodation in France, for this reason it can sometimes be difficult to find it. We recommend that you broaden your search to other categories of accommodation, such as shared accommodation for example.

If you are a new resident, take the time to identify the places you visit most often, to choose your ideal location and be sure to discover Lille  in the best conditions.


The Wazemmes district, affordable and dynamic


Wazemmes is a popular district perfectly integrated into the city of Lille, developed around the marketplace and the rue des Postes.

Bistro and bohemian life represent the modern social mix of this district. The standard of living is affordable and you will find everything you need to live at a lower cost. To eat fresh produce, head to the Halle de Wazemmes, open all week, and the famous market on Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday mornings. Its market is one of the largest in Europe.

Léon Gambetta street is known for the dynamism of its many shops, attracting both locals and tourists. This street has become a flourishing street for eco-responsible businesses. Organic, zero waste and vegan stores have found customers in this very lively district.

In addition, it is very well served by Lille public transport. With an average price of around 3700 euros per m2, the Wazemmes district is much cheaper than Old Lille for example. Today, Wazemmes has become one of the most attractive districts of Lille, even if it still suffers from a bad reputation




Old Lille, the historic district


Lille's old district, known as the Golden Triangle, is located in the north of the city and is undoubtedly the most popular area for locals.

This district became a heritage site in 1980. Its perfectly restored historic buildings bring an unequaled charm to the district. If you are a young dynamic executive, this booming district will seduce you for sure.

The district is home to the most buildings dating from before the 19th century. In particular, the Cathedral Basilica of Notre-Dame-de-la-Treille, the Convent of the Minimes, the Church of Sainte-Marie-Madeleine and also the Porte de Gand.

The constructions of the district represent the characteristics of the architecture of Lille. We recognize the neo-Gothic style, but also Flemish. 

This particularly attractive sector is conducive to conviviality and has many advantages: structured cultural facilities, intensive arts, cultural and social life and strong commercial activities (restaurants and bars). The territory also knows how to preserve nature and enhance its site: the Plaine de la Poterne ecological garden covers 2.5 hectares and combines nature and heritage.

It is poorly served by its many pedestrian streets, but bicycles are welcome!

Old Lille retains its appeal and is particularly sought after by buyers. The prices displayed are therefore the highest prices in the city.< 



The coliving lease contract, how does it work?



Because of its very recent arrival, coliving is still poorly regulated in French law. In fact, co-living accommodation is often rented as furnished, on a mobility lease or even as a hostel accommodation.
