The 10 hectare residential area includes 2 dorms :
- 403 individual rooms in the Paul Comparat
residence, which is run by the School itself,
- and 240 bedsits in the Paul Emile Victor
residence, run by ARPEJ.
Thus all 1st year students can be accommodated on campus. In 2nd and 3rd years, priority goes to grant-holders and to the foreign students welcomed on campus under the numerous exchange arrangements Centrale Lyon has with its partner universities worldwide.
