Student and campus life

Present on each of the 3 campuses, the Student and Campus Life Service (SVEC) is attentive to the concerns of students regarding their life at the university and invites them to get involved in the student life development process.

As a student at USMB, you will benefit from various aids to help you better live your formative years.

The Student PASS
Proof of your student status for the academic year, the student PASS serves as a means of payment in university restaurants, as an access card to your university residence and allows you to borrow your documents from the BU.


The University Library
Your university library (or BU) is a place that allows you to work, cultivate and relax at the same time. Many services are set up by the BU teams: borrowing documents, access to digital resources, work room reservation, training on Moodle, etc.

Pizzas, grills, daily specials, sandwiches, pastries, salads, many formulas are offered by the CROUS university restaurants and cafeterias which remain the best value for money close to your classrooms.


By carpool, train, bus or bike, there are many ways to get to your campus ! As a student, you will benefit from reduced fares at most public transport agencies in the conurbations. Different types of season tickets can be combined, such as train and bus or intercity tickets. The USMB is committed to sustainable development, which is why we encourage you to be an eco-citizen and to favour certain modes of transport.

Are you experiencing a health, social, housing or other difficulty? The student health service is listening to you on the three campuses of USMB. Depending on your needs, you can consult a nurse, a doctor, a psychologist or a social worker free of charge.


Feel like moving? The Service des Sports offers you a multitude of activities throughout the year! You will also have the opportunity to discover our region by taking part in outdoor outings supervised by the Sports Department (hiking, downhill skiing, via ferrata, climbing, etc.) and to follow discovery courses over several days (kayaking, sailing, tennis, etc.). Don't miss the sports nights (handball, volleyball, badminton) organised on campus!


Associative life is also very present on campuses, the BDEs of your schools carry out various actions. Musicians' associations play concerts between noon and two. Thematic associations propose you to join and accompany them in their projects.


With the ambition to accompany the entire university community in its cultural practices and discoveries, the cultural mission of the USMB cannot exist without a policy of openness and partnerships with regional academic structures, local authorities, institutions and cultural structures in the Savoie Mont Blanc region.

The USMB offers you the opportunity to take part in cultural activities or attend performances at reduced prices:

In parallel with your training, many conferences or debates on scientific, economic or social themes (Amps for all, unusual quarter of an hourinterviews, the university business club...) will be offered to you.
