TELECOM Nancy is located on the Scientifique Aiguillettes university campus in Villers-lès-Nancy . The city center of Nancy is about fifteen minutes by tram.

The school building, inaugurated on June 30, 2007, received its first students at the start of the 2007 school year.

This 6,900 m² building is the result of funding of 9 million Euros . Funding of 0.75 million Euros enabled the first equipment. The project was co-financed, by third parties, by the General Council of Meurthe-et-Moselle (delegated contracting authority), the Regional Council of Lorraine and the State (contracting authority) with additional funding from the Urban Community of Greater Nancy. We should also note the purchase by the University Henri Poincaré, Nancy 1 (University of Lorraine) of the land allowing this operation for an amount of more than 1.2 million Euros.
The building was designed by architects Alain Casari and Thierry Mercier.


Until June 2007, TELECOM Nancy was hosted in the premises of the Faculty of Sciences and Techniques of Vandeuvre (Campus Scientifique Victor Grignard), TELECOM Nancy only had 1500 m² to accommodate its educational and administrative activities.
