Life in Avignon as an international student
Avignon is a typical Provencal city, full of history and culture. There are two main campuses in Avignon: the first one, Hannah Arendt, is located in the city centre (Sainte Marthe); the other one, Jean-Henri Fabre, is outside the city, in a technology park called Agroparc. The university, composed of these 2 main campuses, has only about 8,000 students. Thus, with fewer students in class, the teachers can be reached out easily, and the working conditions are all at their best.
Places to visit
Avignon is a very lovely city. You should visit the Palais des Papes ("Palace of the Popes") and the Rocher des Doms. The University is, in itself, a very beautiful building, too. You can walk through the Place de l'Horloge ("Clock Square"), discover the Rue de la République ("République Street") and go up the shopping streets to Place Pie ("Pie Square"), where you would find all the bars. Have a walk along the ramparts to the Avignon bridge (dancing is authorised).
The nightlife is good in Avignon, provided you go out on Thursday night (or especially to students' parties). Usually, the place to go is Place Pie, where all the most popular bars are concentrated, and where people normally get together and party.
Finding accommodation in Avignon is not more difficult than in any other city. There are plenty of small flats to rent, whether you choose to rent a room from a private individual or from an organisation (like the 'CROUS'). If you choose a flat from the CROUS, it is easier (a smaller search), it can be cheaper (not always though), but there are plenty of rules that can be restrictive (and sometimes annoying, like you cannot invite a friend to a sleepover). Thus, if you have time and attention to spend, I would advise you to look for a room rented out by a private individual (have a look at websites like Le Bon Coin or on Facebook).
