The 14th arrondissement of Paris is one of the 20 arrondissements (administrative districts) of the capital city of France.

Situated on the left bank of the River Seine, it contains most of the Montparnasse district, which has traditionally been home to many artists as well as a Breton community. The district is today best-known for its skyscraper, the Tour Montparnasse, and its major railway terminus, the Gare Montparnasse.

The 14th arrondissement also contains the Cité Internationale Universitaire de Paris, which is located near Parc Montsouris and Stade Charléty.



The land area of this arrondissement is 5.621 km² (2.18 sq. miles, or 1,389 acres).


The 14th arrondissement attained its peak population in 1954 when it had 181,414 inhabitants. It continues to have a high density of both population and business activity with 132,844 inhabitants and 71,836 jobs as of the last census, in 1999.

¹This group is made up largely of pieds-noirs from Northwest Africa, followed by former colonial citizens who had French citizenship at birth (such as was often the case for the native elite in French colonies), and to a lesser extent foreign-born children of French expatriates. Note that a foreign country is understood as a country not part of France as of 1999, so a person born for example in 1950 in Algeria, when Algeria was an integral part of France, is nonetheless listed as a person born in a foreign country in French statistics.
² An immigrant is a person born in a foreign country not having French citizenship at birth. Note that an immigrant may have acquired French citizenship since moving to France, but is still considered an immigrant in French statistics. On the other hand, persons born in France with foreign citizenship (the children of immigrants) are not listed as immigrants.


SNCF, the French rail company, has its head office in the 14th arrondissement.[1]
