dorm room

Where will I live?

Students stay in one of three well-located dorms in the St. Germain des Prés / Montparnasse areas of Paris. Each dorm has comfortable common areas-- lounge, TV room, student kitchen, library, etc. Meal plans vary by dorm but all include a continental breakfast daily. Accommodations include twin or single rooms; baths may be shared or private (depending on the dorm). Some single rooms are available at a supplement but these rooms fill up quickly so apply early!

Our main dorm will be the Centre Dominicain. The Centre has mostly twin rooms with private baths. Some singles are available at a supplement. Breakfast is served daily and a student kitchen is available to store and prepare food. The dorm as a TV room and library, as well. It is very well-located near cinemas, cafés, shops, the métro and bus lines. All rooms have been recently renovated.

The second residence is the Foyer de la Sainte Famille. Located adjacent to the Institut Catholique, this dorm offers mostly twin rooms and a few singles. Some rooms have private baths, others will share bathroom facilities on the same floor. Rooms have an eclectic mix of furnishings-- no two are alike! The Foyer is in the 6th district with easy access to the metro, buslines and Jardin de Luxembourg.
