Audencia’s main campus in Nantes is one of the most beautiful in France. We designed it specifically to give you a high-quality learning environment. We are housed in a 23,000m² purpose-built campus opposite the University of Nantes, so student life here is bustling. We also have campuses in Paris, Beijing,  Shenzhen and Chengdu.

Our facilities are modern and comfortable, with everything you need for class, study and relaxation.

Financial Trading Room

A state-of-the-art financial trading room gives you access to a range of services usually reserved for finance professionals.



Audencia offers you access to a sports hall equipped for team sports such as basketball, volleyball and football. You can also take advantage of our well-equipped gym as well as a fitness centre for activities such as dance, yoga and more. A public swimming pool and ice-skating rink are within seven minutes by foot.

Knowledge Hub

Throughout the year, the Knowledge Hub team receives, informs and trains students in documentary research methodology, on how to consult databases, format bibliographical references and provides students with information on such issues as plagiarism.

A team of 9 librarians is at the disposal of students and professors to help them find the documents they are looking for.

Students can ask for one-on-one library search help when they need it or can receive training in how to use bibliographical reference management tools.

Librarians are also available to help teaching staff with their academic projects (identify tools, enrich class materials with bibliographical references etc.).

Library opening times: 
Monday to Friday 8.00 am to 9.00 pm 
Saturday 10.00 am to 5.00 pm 
Access to electronic resources: 24/24 and 7/7


Conceived and managed by students of the Specialised Master in Marketing, Design and Creation and run jointly by Audencia, engineering school Centrale Nantes and design school ENSA Nantes, the Playground provides Nantes students, faculty members, firms, entrepreneurs and clubs with a purpose-build environment where projects and products can take shape.

This creative space is built around the concept of “design thinking” and the “do-it-yourself” (DIY) movement. It comes with its own Fablab. The space promotes co-working and allows diverse groups to come together for networking, collaboration and ideation.

The machine room includes a 3D printer, 3D pens, drills, saws, vinyl-cutting machines and more that allow groups to create prototypes. Computers with graphic design and image editing software are also available. The design-thinking area of the lab contains all kinds of creative tools to inspire the imagination.


Audencia’s cafeteria is located on the ground floor and serves hot beverages, sodas, croissants and other snacks. At lunch, the cafeteria offers sandwiches and meals. You can also prepare food you bring from home here. There are also many affordable and tasty options within a five-minute walk from campus.
