With the purchase of the Hôtel de l’Artillerie in the seventh arrondissement of Paris, Sciences Po is carrying its educational and scientific approach into the future. Opening scheduled for 2021.
The Hôtel de l'Artillerie
By acquiring the Hôtel de l’Artillerie, located in the seventh arrondissement of Paris, Sciences Po has secured the means to create an innovative multidisciplinary campus in the heart of the capital.
Just a few steps away from our historic building on rue Saint-Guillaume, the Hôtel de l’Artillerie will provide the Sciences Po campus in Paris with a new heart and new facilities. The redevelopment plan will allow us to strengthen and develop our attractiveness in France and abroad while streamlining our real estate portfolio. The opening is scheduled for 2021 after four years of construction work.
A research and teaching hub
An ambitious fundraising campaign will be launched to support the project. Would you like to participate? Visit our Donors & Partners page.
The new campus planned around the Artillerie will enable Sciences Po to achieve the transformation outlined in its strategic plan: to become a multidisciplinary research and education platform engaged with the city and society; to intensify productive exchange between disciplines; to facilitate the inter-relationship between research and teaching; to forge ever-closer ties with practitioners from all professional circles; and to reinforce the role of the social sciences in public life.
The Hôtel de l'Artillerie, a innovative future campus in the heart of Paris
New facilities – technology-enabled rooms, a courtroom, a newsroom for the School of Journalism, a business incubator, etc. – will place this campus at the forefront of the pedagogical revolution that is transforming higher education.
A lever for Paris’s attractiveness
For the state, the plan represents a development in the public interest dedicated to youth, higher education and the advancement of research in the humanities and social sciences.
The City of Paris strongly supports the plan, which will increase the attractiveness of higher education in the capital and make an exceptional yet hitherto unknown historical and architectural heritage accessible to Parisians.
