At home, on campus, in the city or on a larger scale, our individual and collective actions can make a difference to preserving our planet and making our society more sustainable. But how do we go about it? Where to start? Join us at the SEES to fill up on information and events, and talk to a host of local players to find out more about environmental and social issues, as well as the sustainable solutions that already exist.

Community life

Vie asso

Would you like to meet people who share the same passions as you? Get involved in a cause that's close to your heart? Or simply represent your industry?

There are over 50 associations or BDEs at the USMB, bringing life to the campuses. And if you'd like to start your own association, SVEC is here to help. 

Relay students (ER)

student relays

You're likely to come across them on campus in their orange T-shirts, at a stand, at an event or discussing upcoming events.

Relay Students (RS) are true ambassadors for the university, providing information and support throughout the year on topics such as health, student life, sports, culture and international affairs.  

The CVEC, a contribution to improve student life

When you enrolled at university, most of you had to pay the Student and Campus Life Contribution (CVEC). But what is it actually used for? What projects are funded at the USMB? Who sets the price each year? Answer in video with Edouard Messin, USMB Student Vice-President from 2020 to 2022.

In a nutshell, the CVEC is used to finance actions and projects from which YOU are the primary beneficiaries.
