Sceaux is a commune in the souther suburbs of Paris. It is located 10 km from the center of the capital. Sceaux is famous for the Château de Sceaux, set in its large park (Parc départemental de Sceaux), designed by André Le Nôtre, measuring 2 km2 .
Housing costs are extremely high, higher than in many districts of Paris, especially with streets facing the Parc de Sceaux, in the Quartier des musiciens, in dire opposition to the subsidised housing found in the poorer Quartier des Blagis. Sceaux is listed as the 44th richest city of France.
Sceaux is served by three stations on Paris RER line B: Sceaux, Robinson, and Parc de Sceaux (this last station is located at the border between the commune of Sceaux and the commune of Antony, on the Antony side of the border).It is also close to Paris-Orly Airport.
Sceaux is connected to the A86 motorway that circles around Paris. The commune also offers a developed network of buses which are often used by the Scéens (name given to the people who live in Sceaux).
EPF is a private university for engineers. Additional to the historic campus in Sceaux it has also dependences in Troyes and Montpellier.
