Campus facilities & Student Life

KEDGE has chosen to remain in central Paris to facilitate mobility between the school’s different sites, to be near to businesses and in doing so to benefit from their dynamism, and naturally to guarantee top-level services for both students and staff.

A truly outstanding site, the 160,000 m2 Lumière building is one of the capital’s largest business centres and a leading business ecosystem.

It has a total usable floor area of 135,000 m2 spread across its 8 floors comprised of two wings linked by a central atrium of 52,000 m2.

It features:

  • Outstanding services, including numerous company restaurants and sports facilities, etc.
  • A friendly environment near Bercy Village and the BNF (the National Library of France), easily accessible by public transport, with a wide range of accommodation. A huge co-working area allowing for better collaboration between students and staff and adaptable rooms with a reception capacity of between 40 and 200 students.
  • An enhanced digital experience: immersive rooms will enable students to work on practical case studies and a giant screen will be constantly streaming classes or conferences held on the school’s other campuses.

KEDGE’s Paris campus can therefore be summed up with 4 words: adaptability, flexibility, connectivity and conviviality.
