An increasingly popular hosting solution




If you're looking for accommodation in a student residence, you're sure to face competition. More than 1,200,000 students search accommodation for their studies every year. A figure that’s increasing by the year. 

There exists different options for accommodation. Student residences are one of them, and they’re more and more popular among students. 

Student residences are privately owned facilities, not to be confused with the CROUS, a public institution managing university residences. The buildings where student residences are located are owned by groups who own several residences spread over the hexagon. StudélitesCardinal Campus or Suitétudes are a few of these groups. They’re often built close to schools or universities to allow students to live close to their place of study. Dwellings in student residences are diversified and satisfy most needs. Shared or individual, spacious or cosy, they answer the needs and tastes of most. 


Student residences in France: state of the market


Investing in student residences pays off in France, and student managers have well understood this. The number of students entering the rental market is increasing by more than 2% each year, and the private rental stock doesn’t answer to the growing demand. Building student residences is a good solution to accommodate these students. According to estimates, available accommodation in student residences is increasing by about 30% each year.  

Many are turning to these residences. 20% of demand on the whole rental market is turned towards student residences. This demand is represented by students leaving the family home and looking for accommodation in the frame of their studies. 

International tenants are particularly interested in student residences in France, and their number is also increasing year by year. Their booking methods make it possible to find accommodation remotely, from abroad. A chance for internationals, who can’t always visit their place before arriving to France.

The rental market in Lyon


Lyon's reputation is well established. It is the second largest employment area in France. Located at the crossroads between Switzerland, Italy and Germany, the city of Lyon has a flourishing economy. The unemployment rate is particularly low. Young graduates can easily find a job directly after graduation.

But whether they are students or young working people, young people who want to rent accommodation in Lyon have to face the lack of accommodation. The Lyon market is tense: there are many more requests than offers. It is almost as difficult to find accommodation in Lyon as it is to find a rental in Paris or Bordeaux. The average rent in Lyon is well above the national average. 

In terms of types of accommodation, the individual apartment remains the most popular. It makes up for requests from more than 60% of tenants. In Lyon, 49% of studios are occupied by students. Individual housing in student residences in Lyon is no exception!

For their studies or their job, they usually prefer to avoid long walks or bike, car and public transport trips. Student residences found a way to adapt to this clientele’s needs and residence managers make sure the buildings are in the immediate vicinity of schools and universities

Student residences each have extensive accommodation catalogues. Each residence offers 1 or 2 room apartments, as well as shared flats. This way, any tenant finds a solution that suits his needs. 


Easy and convenient: life in student residences is adapted to modern lifestyles


Sources of worry can include taking out different subscriptions at a time for your home, managing administrative procedures related to the rental...  student residences know that and take everything in charge for their tenants. 

For example, service charges are entirely managed by the residence, preventing from possible dispute with your renter, or from any unplanned transaction on your bank account. Which greatly simplifies the life of residents. 

Student residences usually offer additional services like a gym, laundry facilities, common spaces of conviviality… Everything is at reach for tenants.
