A rapidly expanding international campus

The Cité internationale universitaire de Paris is currently undergoing a phase of historic development. By 2025 it will welcome 10 new houses and modernise all of its services. The campus will welcome 12,000 students, researchers and artists from 150 nationalities in its 43 houses every year.

A variety of careers

The Cité internationale functions like a small city and its jobs are very varied (technical services, gardeners, hospitality, support etc.) but they all have one thing in common: improving hospitality and services offered to residents and visitors. Our employees plan, innovate, create, guide and orchestrate every day.

A desire for balance

Balance between professional and personal life, demand, friendliness and protection are the pillars of a lasting relationship with our employees: the possibility of working from home two days a week (where possible), awareness workshops to improve working conditions, access to around 50 different sports at preferential rates on campus etc…

The commitment at the heart of our actions

Our commitments are based on 3 pillars: living together better, solidarity and being connected, and creating a sustainable world. We share these values with our employees in order to have a positive impact on society and to build a peaceful world for today and tomorrow. We advocate for and transmit a culture of equality on a daily basis. We focus on the equality between men and women (index of 94/100 in 2020). We also advocate for disability awareness by participating in Duo Day every year.

Work at an exceptional place
