If you are going to live in the city center, you can find bellow a map of Bordeaux where it is explained advantages and disadvantages of each neighborhood.
Line B tram, the line that will be most useful during your time in Bordeaux. It allows you, just like the Bus 10, to join the KEDGE campus.
Gray Zone :
The neighborhoods of this area are far to reach KEDGE. In addition, these neighborhoods are a bit far from the clubs and bars where most parties of the year will take place.
Red Zone :
The neighborhoods are well served but are quite far from the Victoire and docks where will be the parties. However these areas can be quite attractive : you can find the famous Auchan-Meriadeck where you can do your shopping cheaply or the Ruins of the old Galen palace : these areas are quiet at night, which can be appreciated.
Orange Zone :
Neighborhoods are rather close to tram B and even bus 10 for some. You will be able to discover the famous kebabs at 2 euros or even enjoy the aperitifs in the open air by the proximity of Quinconce with the docks for example.
Green Zone :
Relatively close to the various bars and clubs of Bordeaux but also transport to KEDGE.
You will be able to enjoy the nightlife of KEDGE while ensuring quick access to the campus.
Whether you are party-goers or studious, this area is for you. Note that these areas can be quiet noisy at night
You also have different places like Talence (where the school is), Pessac, Merignac and Bègles, which are more far away from the center.
During your trip at Bordeaux you’re going to live whether in Talence or in the City Center of Bordeaux.
Living in Talence has the benefit to go to KEDGE fastly. This sector still has advantages for athletes because a large number of sports facilities are available in Talence. There are a lot of student residence.And living in a student residence can be an opportunity to meet new people!
However, if you prefer having a perfect Kedger’s life (with parties, bar…), we advise you to try to find an accomodation in the City Center about 35 minutes from KEDGE) or in between Talence and Bordeaux city center.
