NOC 42: Not Only a Campus

Located opposite the historic 42 Paris building, NOC 42 is at the service of all those who live, work, study and socialise in the Épinettes-Bessières district (Paris 17th arrondissement).


What is NOC 42?

In 2013, 42 opened its first campus at 96 Boulevard Bessières. Ten years later, in 2023, 42 is launching NOC 42: an open space and practical day-to-day facilities to bring the Épinettes-Bessières district together. NOC 42, winner of the “RĂ©inventer Paris” competition in 2016, offers new opportunities to the entire 42 student and local community. The acronym stands for Not Only a Campus.

The NOC 42 Residence

For one night, one week, one month, or more: NOC 42 enables those applying for or studying at 42 to book a bed-cabin in the Residence. It offers fully adapted spaces for people with reduced mobility, whether in mixed groups or not, just opposite 42's main campus. Vending machines are available for everyday needs: food, drink, etc. Sanitary facilities include shared toilets and showers. From €9 incl. tax per night.

Construction work

In 2023, 42 is launching a complete renovation and expansion of its historic campus: the 42UP project. The pharaonic works, which will take 2 to 3 years to complete, have necessitated the temporary relocation to NOC 42 and to the Made in Saint-Ouen annex. Once the work is complete, new opportunities will open up at NOC 42.
