Chamber seating plans

Interactive Hemicycle

For plenary sittings, the 705 Members of the European Parliament meet in the Chambers in Strasbourg and Brussels.

Members sit in political groups. Those who do not belong to a group sit as non-attached Members.

There are two Chamber seating plans, one for Strasbourg and one for Brussels; they are updated for each part-session.
