Our Paris centre is at Reid Hall, in the historic heart of Montparnasse where Picasso and Modigliani had their studios, and near cafés that were frequented by Gertrude Stein and Ernest Hemingway. We are only a five-minute walk from the Jardin du Luxembourg, which is an expansive, classically designed park, much frequented by students from the Sorbonne and other universities.
Reid Hall occupies traditional buildings grouped around two quiet and leafy inner courtyards. It was founded as a porcelain factory in the 18th century and has served as a centre for teaching and research since 1834. A more modern wing was added to the Hall, before the Great War of 1914-1918, by expatriate architect Charles White, who also designed a house for novelist Edith Wharton.
Kent postgraduates use facilities at Reid Hall alongside students and staff from Columbia University, Dartmouth College and other similarly prestigious institutions.
