Student Life

Student Life

Living on-site allows students to truly benefit from their time at HEC Paris, and all of the facilities the campus has to offer. 

Life on campus has a community feel and you will quickly develop strong friendships which continue long after graduation.

Sport is an excellent way to throw yourself head-first into campus life. The strong "HEC team spirit" is truly infectious. Sports associations organize regular practices, socials and outings as well as year-long competitions renowned both locally and internationally.

With 130 student clubs and associations to choose from, there is something for everyone. Societies range from humanitarian to civic to leisure and all provide a fantastic opportunity to meet like-minded people and compliment your studies.

HEC organizes a range of events on campus, from traditional career fairs helping you to achieve your professional goals, to entertaining shows and performances. Read an article about Paul Taylor's show on campus

As all international students are offered accommodation on campus, getting involved couldn’t be easier.

The resources and facilities at HEC Paris are exceptional. The campus is surrounded by acres of woodland complete with its very own lake. Rock climbing, tennis, volleyball, ping pong: you are sure never to be bored after classes, rain or shine, summer or winter.

There is also a lot on offer off-campus thanks to its ideal location. Versailles is a 5 minute train ride away and the center of Paris only 20km, presenting the perfect opportunity to soak up French culture in its vibrant capital.

Don't take our word for it! Explore the student blog, written by current students, covering all aspects of campus life.
