Cité Internationale Universitaire de Paris, CIUP, Cité U, is a private park and foundation located in Paris, France. Since 1925, it has provided general and public services, including the maintenance of several dozen residences for students and visiting academics in the Île-de-France region, and has been officially recognized as a foundation of public interest since then.

CIUP was established after World War I by André Honnorat in cooperation with Émile Deutsch de la Meurthe in order to create a meetingplace for students, researchers and intellectuals from around the world in a spirit of peace, unity and friendly cooperation.

Several structures have been designed by architects of note, such as Le Corbusier, Willem Marinus Dudok, Heydar Ghiai and Claude Parent. The residences are organized mostly by nationality, although residents in each maison are not necessarily from the country implied by the naming of the building. Up to 30%-50% of the student residents in each maison may come from different nationalities. Students of 132 different nationalities were living in the Cité Internationale in 2006. In the early 21st century, CIUP acquired two residences outside its perimeter, in the 19th arrondissement of Paris.[1]

The CIUP in the 14th arrondissement of Paris is bounded to the south by the Boulevard Périphérique, a busy highway that circles the border of Paris, and to the north by the Parc Montsouris.
