Welcome students!

Every year, almost 30,000 of you choose Poitiers for your studies, thereby making Poitiers one of the most important university towns in France. Greater Poitiers, the University of Poitiers, the CROUS (the Regional Center for University and School Welfare), and the various associations and cultural actors of Poitiers are pleased to welcome you.

This Welcome Month is an opportunity for you to discover, meet and exchange in an upbeat, interesting and creative way with the different organisations, local associations and inhabitants of Poitiers. Many new ideas and free activities are in store for you: the Village (a cultural and social forum), the ‘Journées d’Accueil de la Vie associative’ (JAVA’s), evenings and shared meals, the ‘Welcome Job’, concerts, Le Circuit … and many other cultural and festive events!

A whole month for you to discover the city and the campuses so that you become full-fledged residents of Greater Poitiers.

A warm welcome to everyone!
