At AUP, we understand family members are an essential part of their student's journey, even after they have ventured far from home. As your on-campus partner, our Parent Relations Office serves as your connection to our campus in the 7th arrondissement. We foster this partnership through a variety of communications and international events and always look forward to welcoming you to our little corner of Paris.
