Student Life and Campus Contribution: Actions

Since the start of the 2018-2019 academic year, all students enrolling in academics initial in a higher education institution must pay the Contribution Vie Etudiante et de Campus (CVEC). With an annual amount of 92 €, one can be subject to it or be exempted from it depending on the case.

The CVEC is "intended to promote the reception and social, health, cultural and sports support of students and to reinforce the preventive and health education actions carried out for them" (article L. 841-5 of the Education Code).


Implementation implementation of the CVEC

The USMB has established a specific system dedicated to the management of the CVEC, which is based on the collaborative development of projects for students.

1. Any ideas? All stakeholders (students, university services, associations, partners) can propose action sheets detailing their projects.

2. A student and campus life coordination committee (Co co) stimulates ideas, examines proposals for action and gives an opinion on the orientations and collaborations envisaged at the territorial level. The reflection is organised along 4 axes called "collaborative projects". It meets twice a year.

3. The opinions of the Student Life and Campus Life Coordinating Committee on the projects are then analysed within the CAC's CFVU Campus Life Commission before being proposed to the latter for adoption. These commissions may also be sources of ideas or be critical. Ultimately, the Board of Directors validates these areas of VEC development and allocates the necessary resources to each collaborative project.

4. Finally, an operational committee, made up of the VP Student, the VP academics and University Life, the VP CA Finance, the head of the Financial Affairs Department and the head of the Student Life Department, ensures that the actions are consistent with the objectives of the collaborative project and allocates the resources allocated to the actions.

Collaborative projects

Six collaborative projects are currently setting the pace for the development of student and campus life:

  • Reception and integration of students
  • Campus Life
  • Health well-being
  • Connected University
  • Equality
  • Cultural life

Each of the collaborative projects is led by a working group led by the Student and Campus Life Service (SVEC). Students are warmly invited to join these working groups and share their ideas.

Among the actions to better welcome and integrate new students during the academic year:

  • Making a success of your arrival at the University : organise welcome and integration events to visit the campuses and discover all the University's players and services, recruiting student intermediaries to answer questions from newly enrolled students, providing all the resources needed to start the new academic year with peace of mind (student guide)
  • Integration in solidarity and sports : propose activities to discover the student's immediate environment (the city, the mountains) in order to prevent isolation and encourage social links through physical activity.


Actions around campus life:

  • Towards greener campuses: call for student projects on sustainable development and implementation of winning projects (fruit forests, soft mobility)
  • Create and run student life spaces on the Annecy campus: in the absence of a permanent space, organise events and set up temporary student life spaces
  • Organising eco-responsible actions: supporting the implementation of actions (improvement, transformation or creation of places) with an eco-responsible approach.


To promote the general well-being of students, their success and integration through several actions :

  • Student health insurance at your disposal - the CSS schemeTo have access to an efficient and cheap complementary health insurance, there are for students in need and fulfilling the criteria the public scheme called CSSfor Solidarity Health Insurance. This is a solidarity-based health insurance scheme available to the most precarious people and whose operation is simple: its price varies according to the profile between 0€ and 1€ per day and allows access to health cover without advance payment.

    However, if you are not eligible for this scheme, it may be worthwhile to find out about the various studenthealth insurance companies(SMENO, LMDE, Heyme (formerly SMEREP, SMERAG and MEP)) as well as their rates, bearing in mind that the average rate for a student health insurance company is €368 per year. However, this rate varies according to the services and cover desired or the level of excess of the complementary insurance.

  • Development of access toto university facilities (ISU) : éto increase access to ISUs and set up sports activities, purchase of equipment.
  • Promotion des exchanges between peers in prevention actions : training student health relays who will go out to meet their peers to facilitate exchanges and take part in prevention actions, particularly in relation to the IFSI.
  • Exam preparation : mevelopment of "weeks to prepare for exams with activities to relax and unwind.
  • Permanent relaxation and well-being offerTo help students throughout the year in their search for well-being through regular regular practices to improve their self-awareness (yoga, mindfulness meditation) (yoga, mindfulness meditation).


TheUniversité Savoie Mont Blanc is committed to guaranteeing equal access for students to digital resources in order to promote student success; it wishes, thanks to funding from the student and campus life contribution, to provide students with personalised support in mastering digital tools allowing access to educational content and various online services (schooling, student information, orientation and professional integration). But also to respond to the challenges of the digital divide via a bank of computer equipment.

Promote a more supportive university environment for well-being and educational educational success of students regardless of their sex, gender, sexual orientation and disabilities through a cross-cutting and participatory approach toequalityandequity and diversity. This is done by studying the reality at the USMB, by carrying out information and awareness-raising actions and by setting up support processes for victims of discrimination and/or violence.

On the campuses within and outside the walls, sports and artistic events provide privileged moments of exchange, encounters and pleasure. The challenge is to make the student an active participant in campus life by practising artistic activities that are part of the opening up to social life.

Two main objectives for the academic year 2021/2022:

  • A better understanding of the needs in terms of cultural life on campus and the cultural offer in the territories,
  • Adapted cultural programming (shows, activities, artists' residencies, other) outside the models of academics.
