Approximately 5,400 students, or approximately 30% of the total student body, live in close proximity to their place of study. Among these are the student residents of the Grandes Ecoles: HEC (1,400 rooms), Ecole Polytechnique, and IOGS: Institut d'Optique Graduate School (1,200 rooms), and Supélec (780 rooms). Additionally, CROUS offers housing possibilities to approximately 2,000 students from Paris-Sud 11 in its residences near the university.
It is important to account for the arrival of new students.
- Institutional staff: Currently, we estimate that 20,000 staff are employed by the existing institutions, of which approximately 30% live near the Campus. Business development should lead to the arrival of an additional 8,000 employees. If we assume that they will behave similarly to those already present, this movement will create a demand for nearby housing for 2,500 families.
- Students of the Grandes Ecoles: These institutions have a policy of housing in proximity. Thus, nearly 3,500 students of the Grandes Ecoles (or 55% of the total student body of 6,400) already live very close to their classrooms (HEC, IOGS Institut d'Optique Graduate School, Polytechnique, Supélec). The arrival of 9,300 additional students will generate an estimated demand for 8,800 places, divided among the Palaiseau and Moulon areas, and to a lesser degree the HEC.
- The University of Paris-Sud 11 students: There are currently approximately 10,000, and this number should grow to 15,000 after the arrival of those currently at Chatenay-Malabry. Paris-Sud 11 students currently suffer from insufficient housing options near Campus (the CROUS residences total about 2,000 places). The primary challenge is to increase housing offerings near Campus for these students, which would require 5,000 additional places to achieve ratios close to those of the Grandes Ecoles.
- Visitors, long-term interns, and post-docs: These are researchers who stay for medium term periods from 6 months to 3 years. We estimate that they will increase from 6,000 in 2009 to 9,000 by 2020. To improve the attractiveness of the campus, we are planning residences for this population.
In conclusion, Campus development will involve the construction of nearby housing for approximately half of the new arrivals. This will involve between 10,000 and 15,000 additional student residences (5,500 currently) depending upon the assumptions made. These residences will take various forms (rooms, studios, and shared housing in proportion to their existing numbers) and will take up approximately 27 hectares of land area. Similarly, housing for 2,500 staff must be taken into account (ownership access, rental), and residences to accommodate temporary staff (several thousand).
An analysis, cofinanced by the EPPS, the CDC, and the FCS was launched to qualitatively refine the demand, to establish a prospect for future usage, to evaluate the desired distribution of target rents, and the various investment methods.
