Lorraine - Site de Nancy
The campuses are right in the heart of the City of Nancy. Their ideal location thus allows students and staff to participate actively in the life of the city.

Nancy is the capital of Meurthe-et-Moselle dept. It is located in northeastern France, on the Meurthe River and the Marne-Rhine Canal. It is the administrative, economic, and educational center of Lorraine. In the city are a noted fine arts museum, an academy of fine arts, and the University, which was founded in 1854. Nancy grew around a castle of the dukes of Lorraine and became the duchy capital in the 12th century. In 1477, Charles the Bold of Burgundy was defeated at the gates of Nancy by the forces of René II of Lorraine. The major part of the center of Nancy, a model of urban planning and a gem of 18th century architecture, was built during the liberal reign of Stanislaus I, Duke of Lorraine and ex-king of Poland. Nancy passed to the French crown in 1766. In 1848 it was one of the first cities to proclaim the Republic. From 1870 to 1873 it was occupied by the Germans following the Franco-Prussian War, and it was partially destroyed in World War I. Points of interest include the Place Stanislaus, the Place de la Carrière, an 18th century cathedral, and the 16th century ducal palace. The Church of Cordeliers (15th century) houses the magnificent tombs of the princes of Lorraine.
