The History of Jussieu

Between the Montagne Sainte-Genevieve and the Rue de Seine, the Campus of Jussieu was established originally for those students who had not been accepted at the Sorbonne due to a lack of places. The buildings represent two distinct periods. The famous architect Edouard Albert carried out the initial planning for a university of 20000 students,although the prefabricated buildings were soon accommodating 30000 students. Originally Jussieu had four specific buildings: The Esclangon Laboratories; the Gril d’Albert; the Tour Zamansky; the Barres de Cassan. The buildings were renovated and modernized to present day Health and Safety standards. In early 2000, new buildings were erected for example the 16M also called the Atrium; Le Bâtiment des Seize-Mille mètres carrés. Following this extension and rebuilding the campus is no longer uniquely a university. The site has become a tourist attraction of architectural interest.
