Introduced in the early 2000’s in the United States, coliving is the new community living trend. Coliving will appeal to those who don’t know what would suit them the best : renting a studio or sharing a flat. Both have many advantages, and coliving brings them all together in one place. Indeed, coliving allows you to live in a spacious apartment, with people coming from different backgrounds, while saving money. You share common spaces while maintaining your privacy. The key to coliving is independence, on both financial and physical aspects.
If there is one city where coliving has its place, it is Lille! Its new residents forget the cold and rain of the north to settle here and enjoy all its attractiveness. Lille is teeming with students who come here to pursue higher education, in business, communication, journalism or law. Even if Lille is known for its unparalleled student city, its professional life is just as much. Once known as one of the textile industry capitals of France, Lille has been reviving this cherished heritage for several years. Many French clothing brands such as Jules and Rouge Gorge have set up their headquarters here. Other major companies such as Auchan, Leroy Merlin and Decathlon are also flourishing in the Lille job market. This is perfect for all those who are looking for a job, an internship or a work-study program.
Lille is also a privileged place halfway between Paris, Brussels, London and Amsterdam. It’s the perfect spot to go away for a weekend or to move around professionally in one of these cities!
🏠 Our flats in Lille
All the reasons previously mentioned pushed Colivys to finally set up in Lille. Three comfortable apartments with fourteen bedrooms were opened at the beginning of 2023.
Coliving in Lille adapts to all profiles. Students, trainees, young professionals just starting out or entrepreneurs: you will find the coliving bedroom that suits you the best! Our apartments and bedrooms in coliving are fully equipped, fitted out and entirely redone with taste, so that our future tenants can start their stay in the best way.
Our three apartments in Lille are located in the Bois-Habité district, probably the most modern district of the city. The advantage of this neighborhood is its richness. Bus and metro lines are less than 5 minutes walk from the residence to allow you to come and go in the Lille agglomeration in no time at all. It also has several restaurants and supermarkets at its feet. A bargain when you do not want to cross the whole city in search of a maroilles (one of the best cheeses ever, and one of the north-of-France’s most important symbols). Our apartments are located less than 10 minutes away from Lille Flandres and Lille Europe train stations, where there is an enormous shopping center: Euralille. If you work in the administration, you will only have to walk down the boulevard to get to the Conseil Général des Hauts-de-France.
✨ The Lille experience with Colivys
By choosing to move into one of our coliving apartments in downtown Lille, you are choosing peace of mind. You will benefit from all the advantages that coliving offers:
- An all-inclusive stay
Coliving in the Lille area is, above all, an all-inclusive rent. Unlike shared apartments, you will not have to add additional fees to the monthly rent indicated on the ad for a bedroom in coliving. This includes home insurance and internet, as well as a provision for rental fees (water, gas and electricity). You will move into a fully furnished apartment. This means that you won’t have to think about setting up your kitchen, bringing towels, or buying that expensive bed. Everything is already there!
- No headaches
By opting for coliving in Lille, you won’t have to go through the tedious process of finding roommates. Colivys takes care of it! You are arriving late at night and the metro is already closed? Don’t panic. You could call our driver service to drive you to your new apartment in the center of Lille. Would you like to establish yourself in your new home without having to shop for food? Reach us out, and we will provide you with a food pack for your first week in coliving.
Finally, the undeniable advantage of having a preference for coliving over another type of accommodation in Lille is the independence. Yes, you are sharing an apartment in the city center with several other roommates, but you are having your own private area. Inaccessible to the other tenants, you are enjoying your own room, and if the layout of the apartment allows it, you will also benefit from a dressing room and a private bathroom! But the independence does not stop there. It is also in the rental contract. Say goodbye to the collective lease that you can find in shared apartments, and hello to the individual lease! Each tenant will have his own rental contract, and will depend on the others. Nobody will have to pay for the others, if one of you leaves. A flexibility that also continues in the length of the notice. You will have 1 month maximum to move out of your accommodation after informing Colivys of your leave.
