Integration and leisure

All the information you need to facilitate your integration, enjoy and make the most of your stay: community life, learning French, sports and cultural activities, libraries.

Community life and integration

Community life is very active, both within the Université Grenoble Alpes and in town.
Hundreds of associations exist in many different fields including art, culture, sport, civic life and humanitarian action.

Learning French and discovering French culture

Several centers and organizations in Grenoble, Annecy and Chambery offer courses, intensive courses and training sessions in French as a foreign language for newcomers, most notably CUEF, a department of Université Grenoble Alpes.


There are lots of opportunities for taking part in sports at the University, at a club, in your city or in the mountains!

Cultural activities

Our campuses and cities enjoy a very rich cultural life: with hundreds of events, a university cultural festival, and many venues dedicated to culture, there is bound to be something for everyone!


Public and university libraries allow a wide variety of documents to be borrowed for information, leisure, educational and cultural purposes. They are also places where people can go to study and meet up with others.
