Imagined in 1925 during the pacifist movement of the interwar period, the Cité internationale project was to participate in the construction of a peaceful world by creating a place where the young people of the world could learn to live together. Despite being a century old this project remains relevant.
The 43 campus houses offer students, researchers and artists an extraordinary human experience. Each unique, they were designed to offer the possibility of experimenting living together in an international environment. Everything is done to promote academic success and to encourage the creation of collaborative projects.
I am passionate about culture and for me living at the Cité internationale with students from all over the world is a real pleasure.
« The Cité internationale is a real community that is a representation of the world. I would like to see the emergence of a society where everyone is in solidarity with each other and respects each other. »
« In Syria, I was a peaceful activist in the revolution. At the Cité Internationale, I feel free. I appreciate the variety of cultures and disciplines here. »
« At the Cité internationale, I am now living a formidable period. I arrived in France on a vegetable truck from Caracas, and for me the world of tomorrow must make a real change. »
The Cité internationale has always been a pioneer in international mobility. It supports international students and researchers from Île-de-France during their stay in Paris throughout the year.
