The MEC welcomes 2 types of residents:

Resident – student
Resident – intern

Inasmuch as there are places remaining available after the admission of students in the 2nd and 3rd cycles, the candidates registered for a bachelor’s degree in a Canadian university and staying in Paris as part of an interuniversity exchange program can also be admitted if they meet the admission requirements

Rooms Rates and Fees 2020-2021


Services included:

Bed linens are provided, housecleaning is done once a week and the sheets are changed every other week. Except in studios and apartments, towels are not provided.


One of the core values of the Cité is offering the students and researchers from all over the world an international and multicultural environment where they can live and study together. Thus, every house needs to provide about 30% of its rooms to students from other countries and accommodate 30% of its nationals in other houses. The Houses have adopted a so-called intermingling protocol specifying the terms making this mixing possible.

Thus, any admitted candidate may be offered the option of being placed in another house. It is important to note that to refuse the mixing is equivalent to refusing to be admitted or readmitted in the MEC. One may request a mixing in writing, specifying the desired House.



To be able to live at the Maison, you must first complete the admission form of the Cité internationale universitaire de Paris (CIUP), by clicking on the following link:

Following this request, you will receive a notification that your file will be processed by The House of Canadian Students (Maison des étudiants canadiens – MEC).
