French House (Bailey: Maison Francophone)

208 N. Professor St.

French House, also called Bailey, is a small building on north campus just across the street from Stevenson Dining Hall (which sets aside a private room for practitioners). On the other side of the house is the North Quad and Science Center. Like all the language-based program houses, students should have some French speaking ability, anywhere from beginner to fluent.
