Moving to Marseille

For students moving to Marseille who are interested in architecture and antiquity, there is plenty to discover. Named the European Capital of Culture in 2013, the city has a very old, rich cultural history. In recent years, the city has renovated and reconstructed many art galleries and world-famous museums. Being an international port city, Marseille is also quite a cultural melting pot. The ethnically diverse population creates a cosmopolitan feel for expats in Marseille and ensures for an excellent mix of international cuisines -- seafood, of course, being the most popular.

2nd Arrondissement

Panier

‘Le Quartier Panier’ is often referred to as the ‘Old Town’ or the ‘Old Panier’ of Marseille, as it is the oldest, most historic part of the city, settled by the Greeks in 600 BC. Le Panier was the site of the agora, or the marketplace of Greek antiquity, hence the name, which translates literally to ‘the basket’. Apartments in Panier, Marseille are some of the most popular. The neighborhood has recently been restored and is very residential; a lot of families live here, as evident by the laundry lines hanging from the pastel-colored, shuttered windows. It is thought to be a very quaint, charming sector of the city. Panier is also considered the restaurant district of Marseille. Some of the city’s most famous, high-end restaurants are located here. The Panier district is also home to many museums and historical monuments. The centerpiece of the district is La Vieille Charité, a wonderful old monument built by the town in 1640 to provide residence for poor local inhabitants. Now, the building acts as a museum and hosts contemporary art exhibitions. Also, Cathédrale de Marseille Notre Dame de Major, a massive neo-Byzantine cathedral from the 1800s, sits atop a hill, at the highest point in the neighborhood, and provides fantastic panoramic views of the city. Just a few minutes walk south of Panier, you’ll find the Vieux Port, or the ‘Old Harbour,’ a typically touristy area where you can check out the famous fish markets, eat a relaxing meal, or watch the sunset with a glass of pastis, a classic French apéritif.

Student Accommodation in Marseille

Marseille is a popular destination for students who want to practice or learn French, as there are fewer English speaking natives and tourists here. Student apartments in Marseille, France are around 30% cheaper than in Paris and though it’s not as clean, the locals have a reputation for being relaxed and friendlier than the Parisians. There are over 70,000 students here and 10,000 of them are international. This is mostly due to the fact that the largest university in France is headquartered in Marseille, Aix-Marseille Université. The university has various campuses throughout the south of France, but three are located in Marseille. In addition, the city is home to a few other internationally recognized universities, including the Ecole Centrale de Marseille, the École pour l'informatique et les nouvelles technologies, and KEDGE Business School. For those looking for student housing in Marseille, unfortunately, the French universities only accommodate around 13% of enrolled students. Most of these apartments are given to those with government scholarships. The KEDGE Business School also offers a housing facility specifically for exchange students called Alotra, but some have referred to it as “diverse, but dirty.” Because of this, many turn to the private sector to find student accommodation in Marseille. Housing is relatively easy to come by and flatshares can cost as little as 300 EUR a month.


Transportation in Marseille

The public transportation system is relatively affordable. A monthly pass costs about 45 EUR, a daily ticket, 5 EUR, and a one-way ride, 1.50 EUR, but the transportation network consists of only two subway lines, two trams, and a bus system. Every evening, service stops around 00:30 or earlier, (some services stop at 21:00). The city, strongly divided between the poorer northern districts and the wealthier, southern districts, can be crowded and difficult to travel through, especially on the roads during rush hour. If you are moving to Marseille, it’s recommended to find a place to live close to the university you will attend or the neighborhood you will work or spend time in.
