The HEC Campus

HEC Paris is located on a 340-acre wooded campus, 12 miles (20km) southwest of Paris, from where the culture, history, and charm of the French capital are easily accessible. 

When living on the HEC Campus, located in the small picturesque village of Jouy-en-Josas, everything is at your fingertips. Whether you want to study, party, play sports or go out, the HEC Campus has it all: a self-service restaurant, a snack bar, a newly built gym and sports hall, not to mention 8,000m² of sports fields. Our Library offers 60,000 books and e-books on management, as well as 1,500 periodicals in a variety of languages to help keep you up to date, and our Languages Center offers students the chance to practice their French (as a foreign language) or learn a completely new language. All of this is located in the beautiful surroundings of the French countryside, with acres of woods, lakes and fields to be discovered.

Our Full-time MBA students live on the campus in a dedicated residence called Expansiel, with 177 equipped individual rooms and 24 apartments reserved for couples and families. This on-campus residence includes meeting rooms, a relaxation lounge, the Piano bar with a big screen TV, a laundromat and a reserved indoor/outdoor parking area. The HEC gym is a 2 minute walk from Expansiel. 


The HEC Campus is located just 10 minutes walk from the charming medieval village of Jouy-en-Josas, where you will find everything you need.

There are two Simply supermarkets within walking distance; one just opposite the HEC main entrance, and the other in the heart of Jouy. There is also a selection of banks in Jouy for students to organize their finances: these banks will visit HEC during Orientation Week to help you to open your French bank account. There is also a hairdressers and spa just opposite the campus' main entrance so that our students can relax and put their feet up after a hard day's work.

Jouy-en-Josas is well-equipped with restaurants, all offering good food at reasonable prices for our students. There is also a pharmacy, bakery and a Newsstand, as well as St Martin's Church in the heart of the village. 

Jouy-en-Josas station is located just 10 minutes walk from the middle of the HEC campus, and from there students can get RER C trains; the historic town of Versailles is only a 10 minute train-ride away, and Paris is a mere 45 minute journey away.
