For more than a decade

The acc&ss centers have cultivated a true expertise when it comes to welcoming and accompanying students and researchers in their international mobility. From our location at the Cité internationale universitaire de Paris and thanks to the help of our partners, especially the Île-de-France region and the City of Paris, we have progressively put services in place that are designed with the specific needs of our public in mind.


Our goal is to make the introduction to life in France easier,

  • by guiding you through the steps in your administrative process,
  • by providing practical information for day-to-day life,
  • by helping you discover the French language and culture.
