“Add letters to Paris: it’s Paradise” wrote Jules Renard. For many people, that claim is proven by the cultural effervescence of The City of Light. 431 cinemas, 173 museums, 208 theatres and cabarets… It is difficult to become bored in the French capital, especially when there are cultural benefits reserved for students!


Cultural activities at Paris 1

Write with a novelist, play in national theatres, sing with the Orchestra and Choir of the Universities of Paris: here are a few artistic activities offered by the Student Life Service (SVE). These activities can improve your average mark over the term and are in addition to many cultural workshops offered by the student associations.


A dynamism to which you can contribute by setting up your own project, always with the support of the SVE. Finally, the latter provides you with many other services, starting with information on the Parisian cultural scene. Don’t hesitate to go to its offices: it opens its doors to you from Monday to Friday in the “cour d’honneur” (courtyard of honour) of the Panthéon centre.

Good cultural deals in Paris

Culture is priceless… But it is often free for Paris students! Several schemes enable you to obtain invitations and reductions to artistic events in the Paris region: “kiosks for young people” set up in three districts of the capital (the Marais, the Champs de Mars and the Goutte d’Or), the website and the ticket office of CROUS (Regional Centre for University Student Social Services).


The latter also offers you the chance to express your creativity in its cultural centre, its art gallery and residences and restaurants. Finally, by simply presenting your student card, you will benefit from preferential rates in cinemas, museums and other entertainment venues. Make the most of it!
