Housing in the MDM

During the school period (from September to June), the residence is reserved to students of the three schools (Mines, Ponts et Chaussées, ENSTA)

As soon as a student is informed that he is admitted, he can ask his school for an inscription file. The admission is decided by the school. The student representatives (called Piauleurs) are chosen among students of 2nd and 3rd years. They are responsible for receiving the newcomers and distribution of the rooms. Every room is, as a rule, shared by two students ; but the 3rd year students may, as exceptions, rent individual rooms.

The student representatives inform their newcomers of the daily student life, whereas the staff is in charge of the daily life. And the management team is responsible for the overall ruling
