The CIUP is a gem of a venue for the organization of an event in the French capital.
This is first of all an opportunity to contribute to a humanist project as the rental of its spaces enables it to partially fund its project to create accommodation, modernize infrastructure, and improve the living conditions of residents.
It is also the opportunity to offer your guests a real change of scenery with a 34-hectare park, the second biggest in the capital in terms of surface area. It is one of the green lungs of the city, and made up of gardens, large paths lined with trees and a central lawn.

Finally, it is the opportunity to choose a prestigious and cosmopolitan venue for your event. Among its pavilions with their original architecture, the CIUP has recently been able to offer two new spaces for private hire: the Salon Honnorat and the Fondation Abreu de Grancher. The first, located in the ‘International House’, which has 8 reception rooms and an amphitheatre with a capacity for 20 to 500 people, is ideal for your meals-cocktail parties, conferences and exhibitions. With a surface area of 398 m², its features include Versailles parquet flooring, marble fireplaces and a ceiling height of 8.20m. The Fondation Abreu de Grancher, for its part, offers a large elegant reception room (124 m²) in a colonial Spanish style.

Note that you can take advantage of the in-house caterer at the Maison for various gourmet breaks during the day or use the existing catering facilities. It is also possible to combine an event with a guided tour of the campus for a mini world tour in the heart of Paris!
