Living in la Maison Française can be both a rewarding and exciting experience. Located in the 1894 Barringer Mansion on Jefferson Park Avenue, residents include 27 undergraduate students, one or two graduate students from France, and an undergraduate or graduate student who serves as resident language advisor.
