    Maison Française (French House)

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. Coming from many different backgrounds, residents share an ability and a willingness to commit to communicating in French at all times in common rooms of la Maison.

The historic, air-conditioned spaces la Maison include unique furnished single and double bedrooms, as well as a communal kitchen, dining room, lounge, salon, and library.
