Parsons New York


  • Residence Halls and Shared Apartments

    As a Parsons Paris student, you join a diverse community in a dynamic city. We strongly encourage students unfamiliar with Paris, particularly first-year students, to take advantage of student housing. University residence halls are a comfortable and supportive environment that can ease the transition from home to college and from one culture to another.

    Parsons Paris is located in a newly renovated historic building at 45 rue Saint-Roch, a short walk from the Louvre, the Palais Garnier, Gaîté Lyrique media arts center, Notre Dame cathedral, and other cultural highlights. Students from around the world looking for a Parsons education in an international city with a program taught in English study and live alongside New School mobility students spending one or two semesters away from New York to immerse themselves in the creative and intellectual activity of Paris.

    Parsons Paris has worked hard to offer a variety of housing options for students during the 2014–2015 academic year, including a traditional student residence setting and a more independent lifestyle apartment setting. In addition, Parsons Paris will provide referrals to students seeking independent housing in Paris.

    The Olympiades student residence setting is a good option for new students attending college for the first time, as it places students with peers, many of whom are French-speaking. Parsons Paris student staff members live in traditional residences and serve as peer mentors.

    The shared apartment setting offers a more independent lifestyle, with three to four students sharing an apartment in the city of Paris. Students living in these apartments share the facility with families and others who live, work, or study in Paris. A management company provides facility services. In both the traditional and the apartment-style residences, security measures ensure that access is provided only to residents and their guests.

    There are many other ways students can secure housing within Paris, including through independent student residence facilities and agencies that assist with apartment rentals.
