From the beginning of the conflict, the Cité internationale universitaire de Paris wanted to welcome and support students, researchers and academics affected by the war in Ukraine. In order to finance this project, it asked the architect Jean-Michel Wilmotte to imagine a virtual House of Ukraine to give an identity to this project. With the help of patrons and donors, this project has become a tangible reality. The 43 houses on the campus will be hosting visitors, with a particular focus on country houses, under the banner of the House of Ukraine. A range of assistance and services has been put in place to meet the specific needs of its residents in addition to accommodation.
The Maison de l’Ukraine allows many Ukrainian students to find a home. It also allows us to share our cultural identity and to imagine the future.
Thanks to its 43 houses, the Cité internationale offers a rich cultural and artistic programme to all audiences, as well as debates on the major issues of the contemporary world: concerts, screenings, conferences, exhibitions, shows, etc. Discover them in our CitéScope cultural calendar.
Since the beginning of the conflict, an emergency centre for collecting basic necessities has been set up thanks to the help of mobilised campus residents and the association Aide Civils Ukrainiens. Located in the heart of the International House, it is open to all.
Students and researchers are housed in the 43 houses on campus. The Cité internationale intervenes with its support fund, always in addition to the aid to which the residents of the Maison de l’Ukraine are entitled. It pays the rent for many students who do not yet have the resources to pay.
Residents are supported throughout their stay: financial aid, social, psychological and medical support, access to services (central library, sports activities, music studios, etc.), learning French as a foreign language, guidance in their university studies, assistance from the emergency reception centre set up on campus at the start of the conflict, access to campus facilities and sports activities.
Beyond the assistance and services made available, the Cité internationale’s ambition is to preserve the future of these students and researchers by constituting a common network and allowing these talents to remain connected to the youth of the world. For this reason, a partnership agreement was signed with the Ukrainian Global University on 21 July 2022. This partnership allows us to maintain the academic and scientific continuity of Ukrainian students and researchers enrolled in higher education institutions in Paris.
The Maison de l’Ukraine works thanks to the professional and dedicated teams of the 43 houses of the Cité internationale. Whether they are in charge of reception, planning, maintenance or security, they are all committed to ensuring that your stay in your house runs smoothly.
This is your campus, so take part in the organisation of its social and cultural life! Each year, residents are elected within the house that welcomes you. They are responsible for the animation and representation of the residents to the administration of the house. We also encourage the involvement of our residents in collective projects and in the organisation of cultural or artistic events.
