At the Residence Montsouris, located in the 14th arrondissement, students live in singles, doubles, and shared-suites. The rooms include kitchenettes and bathrooms. Resident advisors, who are graduate and undergraduate students enrolled in courses at NYU Paris, live in the residence to assist students in acclimating to life in Paris, dealing with practical matters in the residence, and adjusting to their new home.

Commutable by metro to the NYU Paris academic center, the Montsouris residence takes its name from nearby Parc de Montsouris which was created in 1869 by Napoléon. Parc de Montsouris is one of the four large urban public parks located at each of the cardinal points of the compass around the city. The approximately 40-acre park contains a lake, wide sloping lawns, and many notable varieties of trees, shrubs and flowers. It is also home to a meteorology station, a cafe and a guignol theater. The park is extremely popular with joggers and outdoor enthusiasts.

Just south of the park is Cité Internationale Universitaire de Paris which maintains several dozen residences for students and visiting academics of the French universities.
