ANECDOTE

During the academic year 1957-1958, about twenty young women were admitted to the house for the first time. They were assigned part of the first floor following the construction of a partition to separate their section from the men’s.

Every house runs thanks to a professional and dedicated team. Whether they are in charge of hospitality, planning, cleaning, maintenance or security, they are all committed to making sure that your stay in the building goes smoothly.

THE RESIDENTS’ COMMITTEE

The campus is yours so take part in organising its social and cultural life! Residents are elected within your house every year. They take care of the organisation and representation of residents with the house’s administration. We also encourage resident engagement in collective projects and in the organisation of cultural and artistic events.
