Rooms and beds

The residence has a capacity of 45 single rooms, each 16 square metres in area. Each floor has a shared kitchen. Two washing machines and tumble driers are also available for the students’ use.


Each room has a large, south-facing, sliding window, overlooking the International Campus parkland. At the entrance to each room the bathroom is separated from the “work and relaxation” area by a cupboard, which on the room’s side supports a bed and a set of bookshelves with storage compartments. A small refrigerator is built into one of the sides of the desk. All the rooms have a wifi access.

Communal areas

On the ground floor the “Salon courbe”, graced by the large mural painted by Le Corbusier in 1948, is a place to relax and mingle. The residents may come here to watch television or read. On the fourth floor the library is located somewhat remote from the life of the residence and is popular for its peace and quiet as a place of study. It is equipped with a photocopier (printer and scanner).
From the beginning of May to the end of October a terrace behind the pilotis is open to all the inhabitants of the residence. A small terrace, intended to be used for study, is available in the library.

Services on the Campus


The University Campus is principally a place to meet others. This is achieved by the variety of facilities available to the residents. Located between the Porte d’OrlĂ©ans and the Porte de Gentilly, the Campus offers, first and foremost,  40 hectares of parkland, around which the 40 residences in various architectural styles are dotted. 

Nevertheless, there is a central focus, that of the Maison internationale, which houses the services for the community: the library, the restaurant, the cafeteria, the theatre, the sports facilities, a bank, a post office. On the ground floor, the acc&ss Paris Centre service, open from Monday to Friday, assists students and researchers in administrative formalities and on any subject linked to their stay in France.

The Campus is thus a real little town, in the heart of the Paris conurbation, a green haven in the centre of a dense urban fabric.
