Originally housed in a 15th-century monastery in the old town centre, the School's present premises include a downtown campus, a modern campus located on the perimeter of the city, a modern campus in Barcelona, Spain and three others in Casablanca, Morocco, Paris and London. The downtown main campus is located at the heart of the business complex near the centre of Toulouse.
