Aulnoy-lez-Valenciennes, a charming town where you always feel good!


A French town near Valenciennes, Aulnoy-lez-Valenciennes is home to 7,300 Aulnésiens. Forming part of the urban community of Valenciennes Métropole, it offers its residents a green and pleasant environment close to the biggest higher education institutions in the Hauts-de-France region. 



Aulnoy-lez-Valenciennes is a small, flower-decked town to the south of the friendly city of Valenciennes, renowned for its attractive setting and excellence in the field of sustainable transport. Major vehicle manufacturers, such as Alstom, Bombardier and Toyota, have set up here and contribute to its influence. The creation of Transalley, a site dedicated to excellence in rail and road transport innovation that brings companies, research teams and sustainable transport operators together in one place, has also contributed to the reinforcement of this position, which every year attracts new students and young workers. Just two hours away from the main capital cities of northern Europe (Brussels, Paris and Amsterdam), Valenciennes enjoys a strategic location with direct links to Paris and international airports. With a rich cultural heritage that you can explore at its Museum of Fine Arts (Musée des Beaux-Arts de Valenciennes), Valenciennes is also a modern, connected, sustainable and dynamic city that is constantly evolving and is the subject of many urban renewal projects. 



The urban community of Valenciennes Métropole, which has more than 13,000 students, offers a broad range of courses in art and manufacturing-related subjects. Students go to the Université Polytechnique Hauts-de-France or the many higher education institutions also located here (ENSIAME, FDEG, FLLASH, FSMS, IAE, IPAG, ISTV, IUT, IPHC, SupInfocom, IUP, École des Beaux Arts, RUBIKA, ETCN, and ESAD). Or in other words, if you are studying engineering, you're going to seriously enjoy your student years in Valenciennes (and if you're studying something else, it's going to be very, very cool too - and that's a promise!). On the leisure front, Valenciennes Métropole offers a whole range of leisure and student activities: restaurants, fast food, cafés, shops and a shopping centre, theatre, concerts, cinema, electric or pedal boat rides, mini-golf, and more. The Satellium, 6 minutes away from Valenciennes, is a leisure complex with a 24-lane bowling alley, a Virtual Game Aerosat, restaurants and an ice rink nearby. And, no worries if you've already done all that! The Belgian border is only 30 minutes away, so you can enjoy an even wider range of activities.
