The Centre was founded in 1933 at the instigation of Jean Médecin, former mayor of Nice, and Anatole de Monzie, Minister of Education. It enabled the young people of Nice to receive higher education without leaving the city. It was also intended to stimulate intellectual curiosity about culture.

Its magnificent 414m² amphitheatre can accommodate more than 550 people. It is considered by many to be one of the most beautiful in France. Many events are organised there throughout the year, following the city's cultural calendar. Above the stage is a magnificent and mysterious fresco "Allegory of the Mediterranean." The CUM extends into the Paul Valéry library. By appointment, people from Nice can consult archives, annals and many books, most of which are signed copies.
Located on the Promenade des Anglais, facing the sea, this pink building, a site of memory and prestige, has a large 550 seat amphitheatre and function rooms to host symposiums, conferences and cocktails parties.
Technical options, room capacity and what it costs to hire the rooms are available on the website.
