La Maison Française

La Maison Française, located on campus at 6 Bull Street, is a residential living and learning community located in a historic house that offers great opportunities to students. The primary purpose of the Maison Française is the study and understanding of the French language and culture.  It is managed by the Office of Residence Life and Housing and this housing option is for women and men; regular fees for historic houses apply. The house is furnished and has internet access and cable television. There are four double rooms plus a single room for a Resident Assistant. The house has two bathrooms, a living room and laundry facilities on the ground floor, a full kitchen, a front porch, and a large courtyard in the back with picnic tables.

There is a Resident Assistant responsible for overall resident safety. The house has additional faculty oversight and support from the French, Francophone and Italian Studies department. Residents program events together and separately, offering inter-house exchanges and the chance to meet new friends just down the street. And these houses are located only one block from the center of campus!

Ideal French residents will have completed French 201 or higher, are pursuing a French major or minor, and have lived or studied abroad or are planning to study abroad in a Francophone country. Native French speakers are also encouraged to apply. Residents studying French must agree to use French with the other French speakers in the house and agree to host at least one cultural event per semester in collaboration with the French Club.
