Main districts of Nanterre
Located in the historic heart of the city, the Centre is one of Nanterre’s oldest and most residential neighbourhoods. It is also home to many of the town’s cultural facilities, including the Agora, the Maison de la Musique, the Parc des Anciennes Mairies, Les Lumières cinema and the Villa des Tourelles. It has a population of 10,669.
Vieux-Pont / Sainte-Geneviève
Located in the north-west of the city, Vieux-Pont is one of Nanterre’s most diverse neighbourhoods: the city’s third-largest residential area, it is also home to a major social housing estate. It is home to 8,446 people.
La boule Champs-Pierreux
It is Nanterre’s newest, smallest and most sparsely populated district: 3,973 inhabitants on 60 hectares. The Boule-Champs Pierreux area has a wealth of major facilities: Théâtre des Amandiers, Palais des Sports, lycée Joliot-Curie, espace Chevreul….
Created in 2008 by the merger of two separate districts, the Plateau/Mont Valérien is Nanterre’s most densely populated district, with 14,935 inhabitants.
The town’s leading suburban district, it includes 25% social housing. While it is becoming younger thanks to the arrival of families with young children, it is also one of the neighbourhoods with the highest proportion of elderly people.
Petit Nanterre is a neighbourhood that is emblematic of Nanterre’s working-class past. With 9,057 inhabitants and 166 hectares, Petit Nanterre has been the focus of major interventions. The urban and social renewal project will have enabled the district to undergo major changes. Today, new prospects are emerging for continuing these transformations.
Created in 2008, this district has very different faces depending on the sector: new and mixed on the Rouget-de-Lisle side, old and almost exclusively made up of social housing on the Anatole France side.
With a population of 7,524, or 8.1% of Nanterre’s total population, the Université district is home to a number of facilities and infrastructures of regional importance. It is also an area undergoing change, at the crossroads of large-scale urban development projects.

The Île-de-France region
The Île-de-France region is densely populated; It has a population of 12.21 million: 4.648 million in the inner suburbs and 5.389 million in the outer suburbs.
In 5 years, France’s most populous region, home to 67.06 million French people, has gained 254,000 inhabitants, an average of 51,000 new residents a year. This movement is partly due to the large surplus of births over deaths. All the departments in the Paris region recorded an increase in their population over the period in question. With the exception of Paris, which now loses almost 11,000 inhabitants every year. But half of them are moving elsewhere in the Paris Region.
