In August, 2017, as part of the final stages of our five-year campus development plan, we became the proud owners of 69 quai d’Orsay, located in the midst of our 7th arrondissement campus. Fronting the Seine, the building is remarkably situated directly behind our Combes Student Life Center, and its renovation will connect it seamlessly to the Combes building. The purchase provides an unprecedented opportunity to achieve our student-centered vision, as students move from classrooms and student activities in Combes to the Quai Learning Commons that will support all aspects of their academic and professional growth. Below you will find the latest developments as we modernize and consolidate our campus of AUP in the heart of Paris.
