The KCenter in Paris was created in October 2015. Collaborative space for coworking, knowledge and relaxing, it’s a central and essential space of the SKEMA Paris campus. Courses, debates, workshops, conferences and many events are organized there.
The KCenter is open to everyone. The SKEMA community, students, teachers and employees meet there frequently. Students are free to join in any event.
The KCenter consists of several areas of different capacities and intended for different uses. It evolves according to the needs of teachers and students.
The Agora, the main space, is a work space and also the place where courses and major events take place. It’s equipped with several screens and equipment for videoconferencing courses with other SKEMA campuses.
The Teamwork, dedicated to teamwork, offers a beautiful view of the buildings of La Défense. The equipment allows to do group work and to share computers with collaborators on a main screen.
The Créative is a space for relaxation, expression and creativity. The furniture, made up of high chairs, cushions and a Microsoft Surface Hub, encourages exchange and creativity.
The Cosy area, made up of comfortable armchairs, is designed for relaxation and tranquillity.
The Klasse is a room dedicated to pedagogical innovation. Equipped with several screens and equipment for video-conferencing with the other campuses and modular furniture, it offers a variety of courses that are pedagogically innovative.
On the first floor of the KCenter you will find another teamwork area and sofas. A reprographics area with computers and printers is also available on the 1st floor. Students can print in black and white and in colour. When the printing quota allocated to each student at the beginning of the year is exceeded, it’s possible to top up their account in the Foyer on the 7th floor.
The furniture of the KCenter, with the exception of the armchairs and sofas, is fully mobile and allows you to work alone or in a group.
The KCenter in Paris is open during the opening hours of the Pole Universitaire Léonard de Vinci, Monday to Friday from 7:30 am to 8:45 pm, and Saturday until 1:00 pm.
You can borrow books after registering and paying a deposit. It’s also possible to borrow books located in the KCenters of Lille and Sophia. Do not hesitate to consult our catalogue.
Nolwenn Perrot, documentalist and community manager, in charge of the Parisian KCenter, welcomes you in her office for loan or any request for information. A monitor is present every evening to answer your requests and ensure the logistics of the place, and for the year 2019-2020, it’s Ahmad.
The KCenter is a place of relaxation but remains above all a work space where it’s important to respect the activities of other people and to remain as quiet as possible. It’s forbidden to eat or drink unclosed beverages, and everyone is invited to take care of the furniture and equipment provided.
Welcome to the KCenter of Paris and enjoy your visit!
