Contemporary Design


The Center in Paris is the University of Chicago's research and teaching arm in Europe, an intellectual community of faculty, graduate and undergraduate students representing our traditionally strong ties to European thought and culture. The Center is located in the 13th arrondissement, between the newly expanded campus of the University of Paris VII and the French National Library.

Nearly half of the undergraduates who travel abroad from the University of Chicago campus study in Paris, in programs that range from the humanities to the social sciences to the natural and physical sciences. A dozen doctoral students are currently in residence at the Center, and faculty visit regularly for research, conferences and teaching.
