The project of creating a building to house Lebanese students came about in 1946. The design of the Maison du Liban was entrusted to the architects Jean Vernon and Bruno Philippe.
Supported by General Fouad Chehab, President of the Lebanese Republic, the house project will be realised after ten years of effort thanks to the contribution of the Lebanese government for the construction of the building and the financial assistance of the Gulbenkian Foundation as well as private funds for the furniture.
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 in charge of hospitality, planning, cooking, cleaning, maintenance or security, they are all committed to making sure that your stay in the building goes smoothly.
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.
