Boasting seven meter high ceilings, a Steinway concert grand piano, and floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the interior garden, the Grand Salon hosts concerts, workshops, conferences, shows and receptions. This superb Art Deco concert hall is embellished by five magnificent frescoes painted by Franco-American artist Robert La Montagne Saint-Hubert in the 1929-1930 period. Following the 2009 ruling of the DRAC Ile-de-France, the Grand Salon and the frescoes are now classified as historic monuments.
The residents have 24/7 access to the beautiful library located on the ground floor. This space, which was renovated in 2003, has wireless internet access. It may occasionally be used for events, in which case students may use the other study rooms.
This Art Deco meeting room, adjacent to the Grand Salon, is available for residents to work in groups. It may also be rented with the Grand Salon or separately as a classroom or meeting room.
The Salon Chicago is located beside the reception. Slightly smaller than the Petit Salon, this room can also be used by residents and rented.
