Campus facilities & Student Life

KEDGE made the decision to remain at the heart of the city in order to facilitate public mobility between its different sites, be near businesses, benefit from their dynamism and provide a high level of service.

A strategic location

Located in the heart of the city in the exceptional Lumière Building, one of Paris's largest business centres (and business ecosystems), KEDGE Paris is a place of versatility, designed as a bridge between innovation and people, placing entrepreneurship at the centre of the school's philosophy.

Located within the 135,000m2 Lumière building and  spread over 2 floors, it is comprised of two wings linked by a central atrium of 52,000m2. The school not only responds to a functional and technological role  but also brings in an emotional factor, a necessity to meet the aspirations of its different audiences. Everything is based on the profound renewal of teaching by placing entrepreneurship at the centre of the school's philosophy.

Outstanding facilities

  • Various catering areas, including numerous company restaurants
  • Sports facilities
  • 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
  • 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 sites.

An enhanced student experience

KEDGE's campus revolves around 4 main axes: modularity, flexibility, connectivity and user-friendliness.

To respond to new educational, organisational and digital developments, KEDGE Paris wanted to revolutionise the student experience by creating the campus of tomorrow, a place entirely dedicated to educational innovation whereby best practices will be replicated in the school's other locations.

KEDGE also shares its facilities with major companies including: Natixis, SNCF, ING Direct, Société Générale and the Ministry of the Interior.
