The Neighborhood

Boston University Paris is located a short distance from the Champ de Mars. This is a privileged location in Paris, close to shops, restaurants, and the green, open spaces at the foot of the Eiffel Tower. Students are urged to become part of a neighborhood well served by commerce and transportation and in proximity to ample parklands. For directions, please click here.
