The École nationale de cirque (National Circus School) is proud to offer now complete housing services. With direct access to the main building, the dormitories will provide a practical and secure housing option. The residences' bedrooms and living spaces are of new construction with a contemporary concept of exceptional quality. The 12 spacious bedrooms can accommodate 2-to-3 students. Each room includes a private bathroom with a shower. Two separate therapeutic baths may be accessed upon reservation.
