Life at Sciences Po
Incoming Dual BA Program students will spend the first two years of the program living and studying at one of Sciences Po's regional campuses: Le Havre, located on the Normandy Coast; Menton, located on the French Riviera; Poitiers in the Nouvelle-Aquitaine region; and Reims, located in the Champagne region.
Housing is available to all Dual BA Program students, and deciding where to live is an important part of the transition to Sciences Po. During the first two years in France, Dual BA Program students are guaranteed housing near campus. Sciences Po students reside in many different housing situations—some students live in apartments owned and administered by public entities, while others secure other private housing alternatives.
Students in the Dual BA Program benefit from access to international cuisine in each phase of the program. There are no meal plans at Sciences Po, and as such, students usually get their meals at the bakeries and restaurants around campus.
Students in the Dual BA Program have the option to join a wide variety of extracurricular activities at Sciences Po. Read about what current students are involved in below.
