Champs-sur-Marne, what is referred to as the student mushroom town
Nicknamed "ville champignon" (mushroom town) for its demographic growth, Champs sur Marne is part of the vast Paris Grand Express program. The René Descartes campus, where the YouFirst Campus student residence is located, is home to 18,000 students and 1,800 researchers and teachers. These 135 student apartments are just a stone's throw from prestigious schools such as the ESIEE engineering school and the École Nationale des Ponts et Chaussées. This growing city is also home to the Gustave Eiffel University (UPEM)
