The former Maison de l’Indochine, the Maison des étudiants de l’Asie du Sud-Est was realised in the context of colonial France at the beginning of the 20th century. It was financed thanks to an initiative committee, primarily made up of French industrialists in the region. The first stone was laid in July 1928 in the presence of the Emperor Annam Bao-Daï and the minister of the Colonies.
The building has been the site of numerous shoots; notably the film Indochine by Régis Wargnier, whose female lead, Catherine Deneuve, won a César for the best female actress in 1993.
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.
