It’s a huge university with a gigantic campus. There is the main building which hosts the theatre, the offices etc. There are hostels/houses belonging to various countries. There are 2 good restaurants/cafeterias in the main building.

An gargantuan student housing complex with lecture halls in the XIVth arrondissement with its own Metro station. Close to a large park (Montsouris) with a restaurant in the main building. Rather unique, in fact. Walking distance to Porte d'Orleans.

It is a campus! It is an international campus where all the country that are sending student to paris get to build the house for their student in the style of their home town. It is very impressive and make you want to study again!
