@Geoffrey Knight / @Tim: it really depends on many factors, 560euro including rent is abit bizarre - are you renting a room? or a small apartment outside of Lyon? Does it include other miscellaneous charges? In the city of Lyon, you will hardly find a place with that price.

I don't see how it's possible to spend that less actually :) His contract probably included meals and rent charges. Unless he was there 20 years ago?
Right now it's 500 euros for a 20 square meters, for the rent alone. And the cost of living in France, besides the rent is not so different than in Paris so i let you do the math...

@Geoffrey Knight

Curious if your rent was subsidised by the university? I am suprised at how often numbeo overexagerates figures tbh.

During my stay in Lyon as a paid researcher, I used to spend less than 560 Euro per month including rent as a single person with no financial share or help from anybody. This is a contrast versus the presented cost of living for a single person: 690.36£ (803.97€) without rent. It's choking, these figures must be for luxury living.
