Sorbonne campus

A huge campus in the heart of Paris

The first time I went to the Sorbonne University’s main HQ (called Jussieu) was a few years ago. At that time, they had just finished major renovations in this huge campus, a few meters from the Seine and in the heart of Paris. This contemporary campus is home to several thousand students, with public transportation nearby (bus and metro) and a large library inside the buildings.

The University also offers solutions for housing, such as financial assistance based on your income, or residences student. You will also find health services, restaurants and cafeteria. The Jussieu campus is located in the very chic 5th borough of Paris, not far from Saint-Germain, the Marais or the Natural History Museum. As for the other schools or universities presented here, you will find many clubs or student associations to share your passion during your free hours.
