    Living in Grenoble



    To help you settle down in Grenoble, several volunteer or public organisations were set up in the Grenoble area to welcome you and your family and help you adapt to the French way of life.

    They will be able to assist you with matters related to your daily life in Grenoble, give you practical information and advice about e.g. accommodation, healthcare, schools, social life, and other activities for spouses and children.

    We suggest that you contact them as soon as you arrive, for you and your family to meet other newcomers as well as people who are already settled in the Grenoble area.
