Useful information


A town within a town, and a institution of well organised chaos, with accommodation for university residents and researchers, as well as a library, built by Henry and Bruno Gaudin, the architects who renovated the Charléty stadium in Paris. With many curves and lighting effects, the university campus was praised at its inauguration, in 2000, as an authentic masterpiece. The campus is completed with a park, designed by the landscape gardener Gilles Clément in the same spirit.
