Our testimonials



"The slogan says it all, the residences are to be lived with a smile! The apartments are spacious, comfortable and bright, and are practical because it's furnished. The residence is quiet and very secure! It is really well located. Within the residence, we also have a lot of services at our disposal like the laundry, the gym which is incredible, it's perfect to meet your neighbors at the same time as your workout! The manager and the janitor take care of us, and are especially available and reactive if we have the slightest concern!"



"I was searching for an apartment on Studapart and Ideal Campus immediately caught my eye, it was well reviewed and I had heard about it from my friends before. Once I arrived, I was immediately satisfied, it definitely lived up to the hype. The apartments are modern, clean and very well organized so the space feels even bigger than it is, the residence itself is very nice and the staff is very friendly and helpful. It's far enough from the noise of the city but not too far so that it's very quick to reach. I highly recommend Ideal Campus !"



"I have nothing but positives for this accomodation. And I would recommend it for all international students. Yes, you get what you pay for. My studio was lovely, the staff were pleasant and very helpful. I have been informed that I shall be receiving a deposit back which is very nice, and I will update my review to clarify whether there is in fact a problem with deposit returns. I have looked at some of the mixed reviews on here, but all charges I have incurred so far appear to be fair. My complements to Anabelle in particular, a helpful and kind person. The tram is only minutes away to the city centre, as well as supermarket shops. If I ever return to Lyon, I would definitely consider staying here again."

"The location is ideal, with all transport at the foot of the building, the city centre within 15 minutes walk but also many essential shops within 5 minutes. The flat is quite well laid out. The atmosphere is very pleasant with the neighbours (which is also why we like the residence!): a nice team spirit and benevolence. Our common room downstairs allows us to meet, share meals together or even work together. We are happy to spend part of our studies at Gestetud.

"We were very satisfied with the Gestetud service: first contact, establishment of the file, inventory of fixtures, availability of Mrs Touati during the whole rental period, refund of the deposit, reception of the parcels, intervention of the technician when necessary, quality price ratio, proximity of services and transport.



"I would recommend this residence to anyone who wants to rent a furnished, practical, comfortable and functional flat immediately for a very reasonable price. A great point: the manager is pleasant, contactable very quickly and attentive to the needs of tenants (and leaves us sweets or cakes for the greediest). This residence is a PEPIT, very well located: 5min walk from Jean Macé, 10min from Perrache, 15min from Bellecour and Part Dieu, 20min from Confluence and so on."



"I recommend it with my eyes closed. I have stayed in this student residence for three years and I have hardly ever had a problem with noise. The residence is very well maintained, very quiet and the manager is up to the task. Very professional, friendly and smiling and always available if needed (even on weekends as he lives in the residence). Underground parking very much appreciated. In addition, the residence is less than 5 mins walk from Lyon 3 university. Honestly, I have nothing to say, you don't have to hesitate."
