Parsons Paris + API Abroad

GENERAL INFORMATION

Parsons Paris is partnering with Academic Programs International (API), a preferred housing provider, to offer housing to students in Paris. API offers Parsons Paris students the option to live in a shared flat. Prices vary depending on length of stay and internet is included.

As a Parsons Paris student, you join a diverse community in a dynamic city. We encourage students unfamiliar with Paris, particularly first-year students, to take advantage of student housing. Program housing includes internet, maintenance services, and 24/7 emergency lines. No guarantors are needed, as API handles all of the housing arrangements.

Parsons Paris is located in a newly renovated historic building at 45 rue Saint-Roch, a short walk from the Louvre, the Opéra Garnier, Place Vendôme 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.

SHARED FLATS/APARTMENTS

Shared apartments are located throughout the city in safe neighborhoods within 30-45 minutes of Parsons Paris. Most house 4 students in 2 bedrooms, with a shared living room, kitchen and bathroom, though there can be some variation. While only Parsons Paris students will be living in each shared apartment, there will be Parisians living in other apartments throughout the buildings. Meals are not included but kitchen appliances will be provided. Apartments are equipped with washing machines but dryers are not common in Paris, so students will hang dry laundry, or bring it to a local laundromat. Free cleaning service is included twice per month. Apartments are typically between 60-70 square metres, which is smaller than American apartments, but standard for most throughout Europe. Please note that shared flats do not have central air conditioning.

Students who select this option for the full Academic Year will have access to their flats for the full program housing dates and will not be required to vacate during school breaks.

  • Shared rooms
  • Furniture (single bed, storage space, desk)
  • Bed linens, pillow and towels
  • Internet
  • Kitchen with basic kitchen appliances
