A highly attractive city
Only 1.5 hours away from Paris and situated between Reims and Dijon, Troyes Champagne Métropole enjoys a privileged position - which is not its only asset. A vibrant hub of economic activity, the city has been able to promote its heritage in the textile industry to become the European capital of outlet centres. Every year, it welcomes over 4.5 million visitors to its four major factory outlet centres.
Birthplace of the Knights Templar and historic capital of Champagne, Troyes has been awarded the title of City of Art and History, making it a highly popular tourist centre.
The city is home to more than 11,000 students and has been ranked as the 8th best place to carry out your studies. Students and future entrepreneurs can rely on the Aube technology park to support them in their projects.

The FabAdd platform on the Troyes campus offers a wide range of tools, techniques and methods tailored to the research and training projects carried out at the school. Its purpose is twofold: firstly, it supports research activities primarily concerning the improvement of mechanical properties and the functionalisation of advanced materials. It adopts a comprehensive approach, from digital engineering through to the post-processing of complex parts produced by additive manufacturing.
Secondly, it reinforces the skills acquired by future graduates in additive manufacturing. In this way, it forges a link between education, research, and innovation through dedicated research/educational projects.
Student life is facilitated by the many amenities on site. Work cubicles are provided for students. A ‘home’ living space combines playful and practical aspects – it’s equipped with tables and a microwave so that students can eat during their lunch breaks. The football and ping pong tables offer a friendly place to relax and meet friends.
Sports enthusiasts can take part in a wide range of activities during certain time slots on the sports grounds and gyms near campus.
Vous avez la possibilité de loger sur le campus grâce à de nombreuses résidences étudiantes proposées par Troyes Aube Habitat ou en centre-ville.
Chaque année, Troyes Champagne Métropole organise durant l’été un guichet logement permettant aux futurs étudiants de trouver un logement mais également de faire toutes les démarches administratives liées à leur installation sur un site unique : https://etudieratroyes.fr .
