Housing at Fondation des Etats Unis

Through our housing partnership, PCA students can book a single room at a private student residence – the Fondation des Etats-Unis (FEU) located at the Cité Internationale Universitaire (CiUp, or Cité U) campus. You will find information about the residence and the two types of accommodation we are able to offer below.

Please note that the number of spaces is limited so book and pay for your room by June 1st. We may be able to get more spaces after that date, but it is not guaranteed.

Introduction to CiUP & FEU

Located in the south of Paris, the Cité Internationale Universitaire de Paris (CiUP) looks much like a large American college campus, and is made up of 40 individual maisons (houses) with various interesting architectural features. Many of the houses are country specific (like FEU) and some are associated with major French universities. The Cité U campus includes a Restaurant Universitaire and a Cafeteria where you can eat a full meal starting at 3,25€! There are sports facilities (water sports, dance, cardio fitness, badminton, etc.) you can use starting at 100€ per year, as well as a theater, a library, and many cultural activities are organized throughout the year.

The Fondation des Etats-Unis, a private student residence and cultural center is located at the Cité Internationale Universitaire (Cité U) in the 14th arrondissement, overlooking the Parc Montsouris. FEU is comprised of student rooms and communal spaces including four salons, kitchens, visual arts and music studios, a computer room, a library and a laundry room. A direct commute (25 minutes door to door) to our campus, your residence stands across the street from the RER station (part of the Metro system), as well as the tram stop Cité Universitaire. One of the great advantages of living at FEU is that you will have the opportunity to get to know other students attending different schools across Paris.
