The Fondation Rosa Abreu de Grancher was designed by the architect Albert Laprade to house Cuban students in Paris. It was financed by Pierre Sanchez Abreu and his sister Rosalia. Its architecture was inspired by the Havana Cathedral and has characteristics of Cuban architecture.
The bronze head of José Marti, a hero in the Cuban battle for independence against Colonial Spain, welcomes students and visitors at the entrance hall. The Abreu family also supported the independence cause.
Thanks to its 43 houses, the Cité internationale offers a rich cultural and artistic program to all audiences : concerts, screenings, conferences, exhibitions, shows…
Discover them in our cultural agenda CitéScope.
Every house runs thanks to a professional and dedicated team. Whether they are a receptionist, planning manager, cleaner, maintenance or security personnel, everyone is committed to ensuring that your stay is as smooth as possible.
The campus is yours so take part in organising its social and cultural life! Every year residents are elected within their house. They take care of the life there and represent students concerning the house’s administration. We also encourage our residents to engage in collective projects and in the organisation of cultural and artistic events.
