The Skidmore Center 

Staffed by our Resident Director and staff, the program center is located in the heart of Paris, in the 3rd arrondisement, close to the Centre Georges Pompidou, the well-known and vast complex for the arts and culture.

The Skidmore Center serves as a home base for our students while they are in Paris. It houses classrooms for program courses, computer facilities, Skidmore’s administrative offices, and a small resource library. The Resident Director and staff are available throughout the program to provide whatever support and assistance our students might need. Skidmore aims to use only French in the program center, maximizing the linguistic benefit of the program and integration into French culture.
