Opening « The Lounge » on each IPSL Campus was the successful outcome and one of many development actions decided by the Executive Committee, in 2011, as strategic and enhancing.
It is a strategic decision on campuses catering to 3000 students on a permanent basis, if we want to be able to provide them with a quality environment, that is considered as much essential as the formal teaching they receive in their academic programmes.
It is an enhancing decision because it is part of the IPSL positive image in the Higher Education community, and with the students and their families. This positive image is also broadly conveying the attractiveness of the Cergy-Pontoise higher education cluster.
“Welcoming, and of good quality” are the key words pointed out when those areas were refurbished.
They are meant to allow every suitable student activities outside of their classes: resting, playing, eating,…, but also to make room for team work modular areas.
The furniture and decoration choices were made to highlight togetherness and cosiness.
Because our youth lives in a digital communication environment, the amenities are resolutely up to date: PC terminals, Wifi Web access, schedule web access, multiple sockets to charge electronic devices, electronic information boards, ….
“IPSL: the easy-going Campus”
