About the Paris Center

Columbia Global Centers | Paris is located at historic Reid Hall, which was gifted to Columbia University in 1964. The Center, inaugurated in 2010, is part of the network of nine Global Centers established in Amman, Beijing, Istanbul, Mumbai, Nairobi, Rio de Janeiro, Santiago, and Tunis. Engaging faculty, students, and alumni across borders and disciplines, our Center partners with regional and international institutions, creating a rich source of cross-cultural dialogue.

Here, we uphold and expand Reid Hall's tradition of French-American cultural and educational exchanges by hosting academic and research initiatives, as well as public events such as workshops, conferences, film screenings, and artistic performances.

See our meeting rooms and classrooms.

We invite you to join us; all are welcome at our events.
