Urban Campus, the European specialist in multi-format managed residential, officially opens the doors of its first French coliving residence – 38 studios and one-bedroom apartments – which marks its deployment in France. 

Paris le xx – Urban Campus has been welcoming its first tenants to the territory since February, in a completely renovated four-storey coliving residence, in the heart of Lille, Rue de Douai.

The Saint So’ coliving residence, based on its principle of living together, sharing, and flexibility, allows each tenant to have a private apartment (studios and one-bedroom apartments with bedroom, bathroom, kitchen) and large common areas (kitchen, living room, terrace, coworking spaces, gym, library, cinema room). The layout and decoration of each room were carried out with LA.M Studio , an interior and design studio so that each tenant feels at home.

A tailor-made rental experience for working people

People are at the heart of the commitments of Urban Campus, which offers a flexible rental offer adapted to workers in the region and elsewhere who wish to settle in Lille. In addition to their apartments, residents have access to various services according to their needs: cleaning services, supply of sheets or even a basket of seasonal vegetables.

In addition, the uniqueness of Urban Campus lies in the animation of its community, each resident benefits from the “Community Development” program. Thanks to the various activities and initiatives offered by the community developer, everyone has the opportunity to develop personal, associative and professional projects (such as collections for associations, speaking circles, tasting evenings, film and documentary screenings ,) with the aim of strengthening ties and creating synergies.

Responding to housing needs in a dynamic region

To make its arrival on the French market, Urban Campus has chosen to settle in the rue de Douai, in the center of Lille, near the Saint-Sauveur station. Due to its European dimension, the city of Lille is a real breeding ground for employment. This new co-living residence therefore provides a solution to the demographic pressure encountered by the city and promotes the residential and professional mobility of young workers.

This first opening will be reinforced, next year, by a second coliving residence of 121 apartments in La Maillerie , located 15 minutes from the center of Lille.

Already present in Spain since 2017 with 5 residences, Urban Campus continues to develop its coliving and multi-format managed residential offer. The company has already announced 4 coliving and Built-to-rent projects which will open by 2025 and aims to open around thirty other residences in Europe within 5 years.
