Location

Location Details

Situated in southwest France on the banks of the Garonne River, Toulouse is one of France's fastest growing regions, and one of its greatest cultural and commercial centers, boasting a population of over one million. The main industries in Toulouse include electronics, information technology and biotechnology, and the city is home to the European aerospace industry.

Many historic structures including a Gothic cathedral, a Romanesque basilica, and the tomb of St. Thomas Aquinas still stand with prominent pride in Toulouse, and are grand sights to behold for its local residents, as well as visitors from all around the world.

Toulouse is known as the Ville Rose (Pink City) for its unique brick architecture, and takes pride in its rich and diverse culture by displaying unusually beautiful wall murals throughout the city.

When visiting Toulouse for the first time, one cannot help but gaze with wonderment and awe at the enormous contrast between its historic quaintness and its ultramodern metropolitan skyline. Toulouse offers its visitors the opportunity to witness the past living in harmony with the present, and looking forward to a promising future.

Housing

Program Housing

The majority of students who study in Toulouse live in the university residence. The student residence "Les Estudines de Brienne" offers excellent value for money. However, students may opt to secure their own accommodations. The International Student Office provides assistance to students in finding accommodation and making all the necessary arrangements. Read more about accommodation here.

Special Considerations

Below you will find information that may help you in planning for your study abroad experience. Early discussions and planning can help to support you in having a positive experience abroad. We invite you to meet with the International Coordinator for this program to discuss any questions or concerns you may have.

Physical Considerations

Study abroad participants may find themselves walking or taking public transit abroad more frequently than they are accustomed at their home campus.

Disability Accommodations Abroad

Individuals with disabilities can and do study abroad, but may find accessibility and accommodation in one of more of this program’s locations very different from the United States. For example, in France, while there are a variety of accessible forms of transportation, Paris Metro stations remain largely inaccessible to people with mobility disabilities. Students may find that sidewalks are narrow and uneven, and cobblestone streets make access difficult in some areas.

In general, the Study Abroad Office cannot guarantee access to public transportation, buildings, or public sites on this program. Any student who anticipates needing any kind of special accommodation due to a disability should contact the ASU Study Abroad Office early in the planning process to investigate the availability of accommodations (including accessible facilities) on this specific program. Contact the Disability Resource Center and your Disability Access Consultant to include them in the discussion; be sure to give your Disability Access Consultant permission to speak with the Study Abroad Office on your behalf. You can find additional information and resources on our Students with Disabilities page.

LGBTQIA Students Abroad

Students of diverse sexual orientations or gender identities will find that the social climate, laws, and norms of other cultures will often differ from the U.S. If you identify as a lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, or queer student - or if you are still exploring your identity - you may face unique challenges when traveling abroad. 

We encourage students who identify as members of the LGBTQIA community to visit the U.S. Department of State website for helpful information about laws and attitudes in this program’s locations, including pre-travel tips and advice on staying safe while abroad. You can find additional information and resources on our LGBTQIA Students page.

Gender Identity Abroad

When traveling abroad, you may find different gender roles and norms than you’re used to. It’s possible that you may be treated differently or be expected to treat others differently based on your (or their) gender identity. 

You can find additional information and resources on our Gender Identity Abroad page.

Racial and Ethnic Minorities Abroad

Students of different ethnic and racial backgrounds may encounter unique challenges transitioning from life here in the United States to life as a student living abroad, including but not limited to access to personal care products and services. For example, in France, racism and discrimination do occur, but seem to be directed more towards immigrants from Africa and the Middle East. 

You can prepare yourself for the situations you may experience by researching the ethnic composition of your host country and exploring its history of racial and ethnic relations. We encourage students to start that research on our Racial and Ethnic Minority Students page.

Cost Information

Exchange program participants will pay ASU tuition and fees for the term of the Exchange program, according to the individual student's classification and degree level. In addition to ASU tuition and fees, participants are also responsible for paying the following fees:

  • $50 Application Fee (non-refundable)
