Residence Life

La Maison Française à Elon

What is it?

La Maison Française offers a unique environment for students interested in French language, culture, and the francophone world. Residents can participate in weekly dinners, crepe and fondue evenings, film showings, lectures, conversation tables and other special events sponsored by the French Club and the French Honor Society, Pi Delta Phi.

Residents are not required to speak exclusively French, but students living in the French House should want and expect to speak French as often as possible, particularly at group meals and special events.

Who will live there?

First-years and upperclassmen are equally welcome. Residents must have completed French 122 (or qualifying placement score) by the time they live in the house. The house is open to both men and women.

Residents are expected to take pride in the French House. Students should have a positive attitude toward cross-cultural living and communication, contribute to the academic goals of the house, and maintain the cooperative spirit of the house.

The French House is located on the Languages floor in the Global Neighborhood, Building D, 4th floor.

The floor includes:

  • single and double bedrooms (stand-alone or suites)
  • wireless internet
  • cable TV
  • laundry facilities

How much does it cost?
