Accommodation at ENSTA Paris

Made up of five three-storey buildings, the ENSTA Paris residence is located in the immediate vicinity of the School, in a quiet, wooded environment.

Identically designed, these buildings contain 425 studios and 5 apartments available for first-year students (and for the remaining spaces for second-year students).

Each building in the residence has a particular character represented by an activity room:

  • Building E: a room dedicated to reading
  • Building N: a room for artistic activities (painting, sculpture, etc.)
  • Building S: a room with a giant screen to watch movies
  • Building T: a room with games
  • Building A: a room to work

The residents have access to all the rooms and the rule is diversity so that the students come together, whatever their class or their origin. This is the reason why the units will be allocated at random except for building “heads”.

Each building of the residence has:

  • a laundry room equipped with 2 washing machines and 2 tumble dryers. Washing costs €3 and drying is free
  • a bicycle storage room
  • a garbage room equipped for selective sorting

Outside, spaces are arranged and equipped with barbecues, benches, bicycle parking and 200 parking spaces located in the immediate vicinity of the buildings.
