We bring utopia to life

The Cité internationale universitaire de Paris has no equal anywhere in the world. Founded in 1925 after the First World War, its aim is to bring together young people from all over the world in the same place. The aim: to create peace and encourage people to live well together. Considered a utopian dream, this great humanist project has nevertheless become a tangible reality thanks to the solid convictions of its founders. Soon to be a century old, the Cité Internationale welcomes 12,000 students, researchers and artists of over 150 nationalities every year.


At the Cité internationale, we open our doors to companies in search of the extraordinary. To those who want to contribute to a major human adventure. To those who want to support young people so that they can live and learn in the best possible conditions. To those who dream of a better, more sustainable world, where tolerance and open-mindedness are paramount. In practical terms, we are inviting companies to take part in our project by hiring out event spaces.  

Think bigger for your events

Turning utopia into reality is in our DNA. Because imagination and daring are deeply rooted in our identity, we pursue the same visionary and avant-garde approach to organising events. It’s what drives us to turn every idea into an extraordinary experience. Immersion, experimentation, innovation… We have the capacity to reinvent ourselves again and again, to open ourselves up to all possibilities. It’s this uniqueness and creativity that drives us every day, to organise events that are as unique as you are.
