We are delighted to announce that Septembre Architecture has been chosen as the architectural firm to lead the renovation, space planning, and design of our new campus located in the heart of the 17th arrondissement of Paris. Established in 2010, Septembre is a collective of architects with diverse backgrounds and complementary expertise in architecture, urban planning, and interior design. Their extensive portfolio includes successful renovations across the Greater Paris region, encompassing university campuses, artist residences, museums, and residential spaces.
We eagerly anticipate collaborating closely with the talented team at Septembre, whose passion for our project, combined with their innovative and sustainable design ethos, positions them as the ideal partner for Paris College of Art.

Our priority is to start the new academic year (September 2024) in our new campus in the 17th arrondissement. The PCA team is working with our architectural firm, September, and local authorities to get the necessary permits to realize this goal. Because it takes time to receive approval for major building projects, we will continue renovations to improve the building in summer 2025.
We will leave our current facilities permanently once we move to our new campus located in the 17th arrondissement.
No, building hours will remain the same and we will have a badge system to access the building, just like on our current campus.
Student Life assists with housing searches and has different resources, including a Housing Guide. We will continue our partnership with Estudines, and are looking to add units in their new residence that is a 20-minute RER ride away from the new campus.
The new facilities include state of the art projection rooms, sound proof booths for sound registration as well as a terrace.
