The university encourages, sponsors, and organizes a full array of pedagogical, professional, athletic and cultural activities from conferences and symposiums, debates and discussions, to moot courts and awards ceremonies, sporting events and celebrations...events follow, one after the other, as a kind of perpetual testimony to the richness of university life and the exchange that it encourages. What is more, by the sheer diversity, spirit, and vitality of the student associations within our walls, this reservoir of recreational initiatives is continually enriched and replenished.
At the origin of fifty or more associations, are students willing to take on all issues (academics, sports, music, societal debates, acts of solidarity), defending their opinions and predilections, affirming their centers of interest, promoting their university. They create spaces of mutual help and conviviality as constructive as they are formative, where, even in the air of festivity, their core values of democracy, citizenship, justice, and creativity hold firm.
For those wanting to create an association, the Cultural Service is there to help, assisting with the modalities or eventually attributing financial aid through the FSDIE (Fonds de solidarité et de développement des initiatives étudiantes).
These associations are opened to all those willing to invest actively in their university, to take part in its rich and varied campus life !
You can choose over sixty athletic activities (among them rowing, boxing, fencing, soccer, swimming, rugby, yoga...), as well as specialized training. Spread over 200 time slots, from 8:00 a.m. until 10:00 p.m. on Monday through Friday, these opportunities are accessible at beginning, intermediate, and competition levels.
