Getting to know the place

Our University has two campuses in Lyon: Saint-Paul and Carnot, which are located close to each other (10 min walk). Depending on your field of study, your courses will take place on one of these two campuses. Therefore, we would like to offer you guided tours to help you find your way around and discover the history of the Saint-Paul campus.

Dive into the heart of Lyon's former prison through a historical guided tour of the Saint-Paul campus in English. You will discover these 19th century buildings which are now mixed with modern architecture.

Choose your day for Saint-Paul guided tour!

Would you like to be aware of the various services available on the Carnot campus (restaurants, library, student break rooms...) so that you can take full advantage of them? This tour of the Carnot campus in English will guide you and show you the different infrastructures.
