    Welcome to Strasbourg !

    Its magnificent Cathedral, its fine food, "La Petite France" the typical quarter beloved of the tourists, not to mention the Grande-Ile, a UNESCO World Heritage site, have given it its reputation as a city anchored in History and Tradition.

    Located in the "Esplanade" district, the Central Campus is near Strasbourg historical center. Also called "Esplanade Campus", it is the main University of Strasbourg Campus, regrouping University headquarters and many University of Strasbourg elements (including the "Tour de Chimie"), as well as the main part of the research units.
