Facilities & Resources

Living in Paris

Our campus is Paris with its diverse urban population and variety of cultural activities and life styles. The city also has a village-like atmosphere that provides a pleasant and stimulating environment. Strolling the streets of the capital remains a favorite of most visitors.

Reid Hall

Hamilton in France’s administrative headquarters are located in the beautiful  Montparnasse/Jardin du Luxembourg/Latin Quarter area, which is a hub of student life and the geographic center of Paris. The offices and in-house classes are located in the Columbia Global Center known as Reid Hall, where students have access to the beautiful enclosed gardens, library and Reid Hallreading rooms. Each student is given a private account into Reid Hall wi-fi.

Reid Hall is open every day except official holiday and most evenings. Small groceries and eateries in the neighborhood provide ample opportunities for casual, affordable lunches. HiF students also enjoy a rich program of conferences organized by Columbia Global Center.


Library Resources

HiF students registered in Parisian institutions have access to their respective libraries (Paris 1, Paris 3, Paris 6, Paris 7, IEP (SciencesPo), ICP, École du Louvre). The Paris public library system, with branches in all neighborhoods, is open to all students, as are the research libraries Bibliothèque Sainte-Geneviève and the Bibliothèque Nationale. The program covers the cost of library cards. Hamilton in France has its own modest library stacks, several magazine and newspaper subscriptions and plenty of print resources about Paris and France for student use.
