Students will stay in single rooms in Paris in the student oriented Latin Quarter. Rooms are simply furnished with a bed, shelves, closet, sink and refrigerator in each room. Breakfast is provided. There is a minimal shared kitchen available for students to store and prepare food on their own.
UC Davis reserves the right to change the accommodation location. Should this be necessary, we will arrange comparable lodging. Please note that elevators, air conditioners and other modern conveniences may not be available in all locations.
The class will enjoy a farewell meal together. A French breakfast of bread and a hot beverage is provided at the accommodations. For other meals, students are on their own but can prepare their meals in the accommodations kitchen.

Participation in this UC Davis Study Abroad program requires travel to and extended living in a foreign location(s) abroad. UC Davis Study Abroad endeavors to reduce and mitigate risk wherever possible. However, the environments and risks associated with living in these locations are substantially different than those found during a regular course of study at UC Davis. All participants must download and review the following information prior to departure. Any questions should be directed to the Program Coordinator.
According to Lonely Planet's description of Paris, there's something for every kind of visitor: "Paris probably has more familiar landmarks than any other city in the world. As a result, first-time visitors often arrive in the French capital with all sorts of expectations: of grand vistas, of intellectuals discussing weighty matters in cafés, of romance along the Seine, of naughty nightclub revues, of rude people who won’t speak English. If you look hard enough, you can probably find all of those. But another approach is to set aside the preconceptions of Paris and to explore the city’s avenues and backstreets as if the tip of the Eiffel Tower or the spire of Notre Dame wasn’t about to pop into view at any moment."
