Students are looked after by a team of supervisors and counsellors. They have been carefully selected. All have working experience with high school students. Their role is to ensure that all students are engaged in fun and educational activities. They are also responsible for providing a friendly, safe, and welcoming environment.

After the closing ceremony and a celebratory dinner on Friday 7th of August, the summer programme will come to an end on Saturday 8th of August. Students should vacate their room by 9:00am, but are welcome to stay until midday, when all students must have left the campus.
Only if the parent(s) are attending the closing ceremony on Friday, 7th of August, the students are allowed to check out on Friday and leave with their parent(s) after the closing ceremony.
On the departure day (August 8th), if you are leaving the campus on your own (i.e without the taxi that was booked by INSEAD or without a guardian/parent), then one of your parents needs to send us an email in advance granting you permission.
Our campus is situated in safe neighbourhoods, with controlled access and 24hr security. Day-to-day life is overseen by a team of supervisors – educational professionals and counsellors.
During working hours, students can also seek advice or assistance at the INSEAD reception desk. The residences also have a service help desk open 24/7. Every student checks in personally, every evening, with the supervisors and counsellors on duty. The supervisors and counsellors live in the residences, ensuring round-the-clock care and supervision. Students are free to discover the surrounding neighbourhoods in Fontainebleau in small groups with adult supervision. The supervisors and counsellors help ensure that the off-campus venues are both welcoming and safe.
The residence’s curfew is at 10:30PM. Lights out time is at 11:00PM. This means that participants must be in their residences at 10:30PM and in their own bed with the lights out at 11:00PM. Lights out will be one hour later on Friday and Saturday evenings.
