Cite Universitaire, Paris

Description

Cite Universitaire is a complex of forty residences for students, with cafeterias, classrooms, and beautiful lawns. Each building is themed after a country and some of the residents are from that country. The oldest building, from 1925, is Fondation Deutsch de la Meurthe, with six buildings built around a gorgeous quad with flowers and trees and an administrative building with a romantic clock tower. In early May, this area is incredible with its flowering plum trees.
The main building which you enter across from the RER station looks like a castle! What a delight! Here, there is a fancy lobby and a cafe with huge windows.
Stroll around and enjoy the wonderful atmosphere. Or, even better, do a study abroad or French language program that allows you to stay here for a month or more. It will be the best time of your life!
Across the street is the magical Parc Montsouris.
