Residents of the Escale Marine will get to enjoy all the treasures that La Rochelle has to offer. From the sea breeze wafting from the Vieux Port, just 10 mins away, to the buzz of energy of the neighbouring historic district – the location has everything, while being just a 15 mins walk from class. Residents have the choice between either a twin or single “studio” room with an oven/microwave, en suite bathroom, desk, wardrobe, TV, WIFI and (in some rooms) a balcony area. Residents will have access to coin/card-operated laundry facilities and will receive linen and towels from the accommodation free of charge. Students must cater for themselves; however, breakfast is available at the on-site cafeteria for a small charge. While students are expected to keep their living space clean, a cleaning service is available at an extra cost. In their spare time, students will be able to socialize at the on-site lounge, relax by the pool or train at the free gym.
