École des Ponts ParisTech has agreements with several student residences to help its students find accommodation
Between 350 and 400 students, half of them from abroad, are housed each year through the agreements between École des Ponts ParisTech and partner residences. All first and second year engineering students who want to are housed on the campus in one of the School's partner student residences. Third-year engineering students and students in other subjects have accommodation options at the Maison des Mines et des Ponts and on the campus. It is also possible to arrange your own accommodation in residences run by the CROUS (Centre régionale des oeuvres universitaires et sociales, a public body particularly involved in running student accommodation), in private student residences or with private landlords.
Residences a stone’s throw from the School
The Meunier and Perronet and Campuséa residences are a five-minute walk away and essentially dedicated to housing students of the School. Thanks to agreements with the CROUS, the School has rooms reserved for its students in the Montesquieu residence just opposite the School, and in other local premises in Torcy and in Lognes. Also 2 minutes from the School, the international Cité Descartes residence houses PhD candidates and researchers.
Living in central Paris
Many students choose to live in central Paris to be close to the capital’s vibrant social life. The School is 20 minutes from the center of Paris (Chatelet-Les Halles) via the RER A train line. The School has rooms at Maison des Mines et des Ponts et Chaussées, in the Latin Quarter.
