The Cordeliers campus was once the site of a convent. The term “Cordeliers” comes from the thin cord that the Franciscan monks wore instead of a belt. The convent was built between 1234 and 1571 on land that was given to them by Saint Louis. The Franciscan convents included a school of theology, cloisters, a garden, a church and a refectory. After the revolution, the site housed one of the most famous political clubs during the French revolution. Later, sessions of the society for Human and civil rights, also known as the “Club des Cordeliers” were held here. All citizens could come and listen to the speeches of the important actors of the French revolution: Desmoulins, Danton, Hébert, Marat…

From 1795 to the late 1800’s, the campus housed a “school of health”. In 1875, the city of Paris became the official owners of the site with the obligation of housing forever, the services of the school of medicine. After a partial restoration in 1980, the campus is now used in part for research, the chair of doctoral studies and also for scientific conferences. The Cordeliers Campus has also been the home to the Dupuytren Museum collection (where over 6000 objects (bone fragments, skeletons, malformations, etc) can be observed) since 1835.
