Living in the Cité Internationale Universitaire de Paris
The Cité Internationale Universitaire de Paris hosts more than 12,000 students and researchers from 140 different countries. Get ready for an exciting and enriching cultural and social life!

It’s exactly this sense of community, support, joy and friendship that I experienced at the MEC – during film nights, concerts, meals together, or just passing in the hallways. Even though when you’re in a big city you can feel lonely, especially in these difficult times, you’ll feel like you belong in the big family of the MEC.
