assos etus 5

There are over 50 accredited associations at USMB, bringing life to the campuses and student life at the university.

And if you'd like to start your own association, the Student and Campus Life Service (SVEC) is here to help. 

Need funding for a project? The Fonds de Solidarit√© et de D√©veloppement des Initiatives √Čtudiantes (FSDIE), financed by the CVEC, can be used to subsidize projects and actions for USMB-approved associations. We explain this in detail below.

A toolbox is also available on this page: it contains a number of downloadable documents to help you with your student association administrative procedures (creation, renewal, balance sheets, etc.). 

Support for associations

These courses are designed to provide you with all the information you need and answer all your questions on the principles of the 1901 law, the financial management of an association, event organization, etc.

USMB accreditation


To support the development and activities of its associations, the USMB has drawn up a labeling charter, which labeling student associations undertake to respect.

The label, a guarantee of quality, gives student associationsaccess to services and funding (FSDIE) to help them carry out their activities. 

  • A university e-mail address with the option ofsending an e-mail to all students on a campus
  • The ability to publish events on the Campus Calendar in the Student Space
  • On-campus association premises (subject to availability)
  • Access to FSDIE grants to finance associative projects (on application)
  • The possibility oforganizing events on campus, with the support of the university
  • L'access to the "Safe Packa prevention and harm reduction program for festive environments offered by the Student Health Service (free training, loan of a prevention suitcase containing free equipment: internal condoms, external condoms, "Just' dose" glasses, electronic breathalyser, informative flyers, etc.).

Financing your project with FSDIE


Five FSDIE campaigns are held each year, during which you can apply for grants.

Before the date of each campaign, you must make an appointment with SVEC to discuss the objectives of your grant application.

Once your application has been completed and submitted to the CFVU secretariat, you will be invited to appear before an FSDIE committee to present your project. Make sure you meet all the deadlines for your application to be processed, and don't wait until the last minute to make an appointment!

When your project is finished, it's time to take stock! You must send the SVEC a moral and financial report on your project within 3 months of the activity financed by the FSDIE (event, action, purchase, etc.).

You need to renew your application each year, even if the association's board remains unchanged. To do this, you need to fill in the charter application form, which includes the following attachments:

  • A board composed of at least 2/3 USMB students¬†
  • Receipt of Declaration of Creation/Modification of the association
  • Copies of Articles of Association Certificate of liability insurance for the association
  • Extract from the minutes of the association's Annual General Meeting
  • Financial report for the past year¬†¬†¬†

As a student association, you can organize various types of events on and off campus. Depending on the type of event, different administrative procedures need to be followed, in particular to reserve certain spaces on campus.

Internal USMB events

For events including a meal and/or requiring additional equipment and/or taking place outside building opening times, please fill in the online request for exceptional event, at least 3 weeks before the date of the event. The application form is also available on the University intranet.

For events involving the sale of cakes, pastries or similar items, you will need to complete the request for authorization to sell pastries and cakes, at least 3 weeks before the start of the sale and forward it to the SVEC.
