Doubs. Besançon ranked 6th best student city in France

This ranking is the result of painstaking journalistic work – meticulous, exhaustive and documented – whose legitimacy is unanimously recognized. As every year, the magazine The Student has drawn up a list of the best student cities in France, based on thirteen specific indicators. With a score of 85/121, Besançon comes in sixth place, tied with Strasbourg and Lyon. The prize goes to Montpellier. In total, 47 urban areas were compared.

In detail, Besançon falls short on the issue of attractiveness, but makes up for it in the quality of student life, the living environment and the density of the training offer. The local economic dynamism, on the other hand, makes it lose a few precious points. The capital of Franche-Comté, overall, remains popular with the 23,000 students who live there: 95.73% of the young people surveyed by the magazine recommend it. While they praise the sports offer, the commitment to the environment, the general atmosphere and the cost of living, the students surveyed put a damper on the questions of security, employment and housing.

The ongoing restructuring of the Bouloie campus, in particular, seems to be viewed favorably. Besac remains among the most pleasant cities for young people, and even seems to be improving over time since it was ranked 21e in 2022, then 11e in 2023… Come on, a little podium in sight for 2025?
