La Maison Française located at Nazareth College is both a residence hall as well as a staple of French culture in the Rochester area. Each year la Maison Française welcomes up to 12 students interested in French language and francophone cultures as well as those hailing from francophone countries.

This spacious converted mansion also serves as a meeting place for Le Cercle Français (the French Club), L'Alliance Française de Rochester (AfR), as well as many stand alone events for Rochester-area Francophiles. Cultural dinners, conversation groups, lectures, movies, or exhibits are among the countless events offered by La Maison each semester.
