The Fondation des États-Unis
Student Residence & Cultural Center
The Fondation des États-Unis (FEU) is a student residence and cultural center serving Franco-American cultures since 1930. It is one of the first of 45 residences to have been built on the Cité internationale universitaire de Paris (CiuP) campus. With its 274 individual rooms, the FEU offers great living conditions in an American-style campus: classic or comfort rooms, a few studios, and art or music ateliers. Our cultural program offers a wide range of concerts, exhibitions, workshops, conferences, and performances, and showcases our artists-in-residence and alumni, who are always ready to come back “to the FEU”. It is open to the general public. We also rent spaces such as the Art-Deco Grand Salon for professional events.

What Our Alumni Say.
Living at the Fondation des États-Unis introduced me to other musicians and artists from around the world. Not only have I forged new musical collaborations, but I treasure the friendships which will last a lifetime.
And that’s what it was - 8 months of focused, un-inhibited work and collaboration. It couldn’t have been more enriching.
There is no other place where students can be together and share good memories, even if at home their countries are in conflict.
On the top floor of the FEU, I forged some of my most enduring artistic relationships, meeting painters with whom I have shared my work and exchanged criticism for decades.
