Help Us Build The 2023 Campus

The Cergy Campus has been undergoing a major transformation in recent months and three new eco-responsible buildings are beginning to emerge in line with ESSEC's “Together” strategy.

It is an environmentally friendly campus at the cutting edge of innovation, with the bio-climatic dual shell of the Research Green Tower, rainwater recovery for sanitary facilities and the irrigation of green spaces. The project also includes the pedestrianisation of the entire campus with the creation of new landscaped areas and increased biodiversity, the installation of photovoltaic panels, composters and organic gardens, etc.

Out of the €6 million contribution of the Foundation to date to the Campus 2023 project, €328,000 was donated by ESSEC Alumni following their crowdfunding initiative organised in November 2021, a donor matching campaign during which ESSEC Alumni doubled the donations from donors.

This campaign has helped to raise awareness of the project among alumni, based on the “Together” pillar of ESSEC’s strategy.
“Acting together” is also the motto of the foundation, which thanks ESSEC Alumni for its mobilization.
The Pierre Nanterme Center for Responsible Leadership will house next-generation classrooms and a space dedicated to entrepreneurship.
The Research Green Tower will be the home of academic excellence and cutting-edge research.
The Sports and Recreation Centre will have a modern and versatile sports infrastructure with a large multi-sport hall, a climbing wall and a rooftop tennis court.

Eco-responsible Buildings from 2023



Pierre Nanterme Center for Responsible Leadership

Connected to the world and to businesses


On the grounds of the gymnasium. The current building will be demolished.


Two floors of multipurpose, modular learning spaces with the
infrastructure needed for virtual, multi-campus classes, accessible
around the clock. Project rooms located within immediate proximity
to classrooms will encourage learning by doing in conjunction
with companies.


To look ahead into the digital era, into a global way of learning and
business like “Factory Lab” for projects involving businesses,
students and researchers.

Modular spaces for international research seminars, doctoral defense rooms and new working spaces for teaching and research faculty as well as doctoral candidates.


To do our best to infuse our teaching with academic excellence (departments built like labs where research and teaching can feed off of each other, for example) in a more and more competitive global context.



Sports and Recreation Center

Overlooking François Mitterrand Park


Located next to the Galion building, along François Mitterrand Park


A two-floor multi-sport athletic center measuring up to ESSEC’s international reputation that can also be used as an exam room, a theater or a show-room.
