Student life
Vue aérienne de Paris
Paris-Panthéon-Assas University places high priority not only on the intellectual excellence and harmony of our students, but also on their personal and physical well-being

The university encourages, sponsors and organizes a full array of pedagogical, professional, athletic and cultural activities from conferences and symposiums, debates, and discussions, to moot courts and awards ceremonies, sporting events and celebrations, as a kind of perpetual testimony to the richness of university life and the exchange that it encourages. What is more, by the sheer diversity, spirit, and vitality of the student associations within our walls, this reservoir of recreational initiatives is continually enriched and replenished.

At the origin of fifty or more associations, are students willing to take on all issues (academics, sports, music, societal debates, acts of solidarity), defending their opinions and predilections, affirming their centers of interest, promoting their university. They create spaces of mutual help and conviviality as constructive as they are formative, where, even in the air of festivity, their core values of democracy, citizenship, justice, and creativity hold firm. For those wanting to create an association, the Cultural Service is there to help, assisting with the modalities or eventually attributing financial aid through the FSDIE (Fonds de solidarité et de développement des initiatives étudiantes). These associations are opened to all those willing to invest actively in the university and to take part in its rich and varied campus life.



The university campus is spread all over the city of Paris. Classes take place in the Institute of Comparative Law (Institute de Droit Comparé -IDC-) at 28, rue Saint Guillaume, in the heart of the popular district of Saint-Germain. French classes take place in the modern Centre Assas at 92 Rue d’Assas. 

The Comparative Law Centre is accessible by:

Metro line 4 : Saint-Germain-des-Prés
Metro line 10: Sèvres-Babylone
Metro line 12: Rue du Bac
Bus: 63 and 87


The library of the Institute of Comparative Law (IDC) and of the Centre for European Law (CDE) has a documentary collection that is unique in France on comparative law, foreign law, and European Union law, as well as a room of reading allowing students and teachers to work in a privileged environment. Its attachment to the library of Paris 2 Panthéon-Assas University also provides access to many digital resources.
