MBS (Montpellier Business School), in partnership with the CCI Hérault and Purple Campus, has announced the signing of a property development contract with Eiffage for the construction of its brand new Cambacérès Campus, representing a major investment of €100 million.
“The ground-breaking ceremony is scheduled for the first half of February, with delivery of the three buildings scheduled for 30 months from today, so that students can be welcomed to the new campus at the start of the new academic year in September 2026,” explains André Deljarry, Chairman of MBS.
AN INNOVATIVE AND ENVIRONMENTALLY-FRIENDLY PLACE TO LIVE
The “new campus at Cambacérès” project is part of an approach based on innovation and sustainability. The materials used will be mainly bio-sourced, with low-carbon concrete, “solar” orientation of building openings, sustainable cooling solutions, and energy optimisation thanks to SERM Energie’s virtuous heating network.
The campus has been awarded the “Bâtiment Durable Occitanie niveau Argent” label, in recognition of its commitment to eco-responsibility, as Stéphanie Andrieu, 1st Vice-President of MBS, explained at the MBS back-to-school press conference.
At the same time, more than 830 new student accommodation units will be built close to this new hub of student life in Montpellier.
