Dijon: Where is the "consigne" in the Dijon train station?

On my way from Paris to Lyon, I'm stopping in Dijon for 6 hours. I want to check my bagage at the station so I can move around the city unencombered, and would like to be able to find the "consigne" in a hurry instead of wasting time looking for it. Can anyone tell me exactly where it is?

Hi Madelina, I was about to tell you that la consigne is closed during the tramway works but found something interesting. I don't know when you're coming to Dijon but they should open a conciergerie in Feb. In case it is not availalble yet, you have to go to reception (Accueil)and pay there. Then you'll give and collect your luggage at the Campanile hotel (24h/24h which is great) right in front of the station.
here is the text in French:
Bagages
Consignes manuelles

Complément d'accès : Service Bagages, du nouveau pendant les travaux en gare de Dijon Ville. Dans l'attente de l'ouverture de notre espace conciergerie en février 2012, la prise en charge de vos bagages s'effectuera dans les conditions suivantes:

Commentaires : -Enregistrement de votre demande au service Accueil de la gare selon nos tarifs en vigueur. -Dépôt/retrait(24h/24h)de vos bagages Hôtel Campanile situé face à la gare (150 m direction centre ville) sur présentation de votre bon.

du lundi au dimanche de 08:00 à 18:00
jours fériés de 08:00 à 18:00

Since you have some time to visit, go to the tourist office near the station (light green front) and ask for the Owl's trail brochure, so you won't miss any important site.
Have fun!

Thanks so much! I'll be going the beginning of April. Do you know if it will be open by then?

Most French train stations closed their baggage lockers a long time ago under the Vigipirate act to combat terrorists putting bombs in them. You can never count on any baggage storage except in a few large stations like those in paris that have airport-like screening devices.

I drove my guests to the station this morning and asked at the information desk about the left luggage service. You still have to pay at this desk and leave your luggage at Campanile hotel until the left luggage office opens in April/May. Enjoy your visit!

Last update for those coming soon, the left luggage office is far from being ready (June or even September!) so you now have to go to La Grande Taverne (Bar/brasserie) right opposite to Campanile.
