Le Havre

LE HAVRE campus

Le Havre campus is located at 10 quai Frissard. It is managed by Philippe Livet and  Sophie Nevoux is the Educational assistant to Head of campus .

The campus is part of a new urban dynamic on the peninsula of the Citadel which brings together the higher education of the agglomeration.

A positive energy building :
– South-east/north-west orientation which favours natural lighting
– The street-like staircase helps with natural ventilation
– Solar panels which cover the flat roof and provide the energy
– A heat pump system running on sea water which covers the total needs for heating the building using renewable energies.
– Outer envelope made of perforated mesh to keep in the winter solar supply, the summer hygrothermic comfort and the optimal natural lighting all year long.

A « sustainable development » building thanks to :
– The environmental innovation: the lowest possible environmental footprint, reduction of the energy consumption, energy autonomy, optimisation of the local water resource, optimisation of the electricity distribution between supply and demand.
– Performance right from the design stage (compact building so less risk of energy loss through the surfaces, tracking of thermal breaks, natural lighting…)


– The originality of the school is the pedagogical scheme called « ship in school » which entails a specific design of the premises.
– The scheme spirit is to turn the building into a pedagogical tool by giving it the same internal organization to the one of a ship by using the main features such as sizes, volumes, materials…
– The inner spaces have also been designed according to the ones of a ship where the technical aspect is everywhere: heating, ventilation, water supply or electricity distribution similar to the ones on ships.

AHLOET (Association Havraise pour le LOgement ETudiant)
Since 2010, the AHLOET association was created by the City of Le Havre, the University, EMNormandie, ENSM, Sciences Po, INSA and IFEN in order to alleviate the difficulties encountered by the student population in finding accommodation. The main objective is to facilitate the integration of students in the city by giving them easy access to quality accommodation.

Visale scheme (ex Clé – Caution Locative Etudiante du Crous)
This scheme allows tenants to benefit from a classic guarantee for an accommodation for those who do not have the possibility to have a person of their entourage who takes on this role. Visale then acts as a “guarantor” for the future tenant.
