Campus life in Paris

Campuses at the heart of Paris (ENS campuses)


The École normale supérieure offers its students the opportunity to live and study at the very heart of Paris. Its historical building is indeed to be found in the Quartier latin (Latin Quarter).This ancient building is well-known for its courtyard, called the Cour aux Ernest and adorned with busts of French thinkers, researchers and scientists who left their mark on history.


The two other campuses of the ENS are Jourdan campus (near the Parc Montsouris) and Montrouge campus (in a town next to Paris). With their modern and convenient installations, they also offer students comfortable places of living and study, close to the centre of the capital.
