Relay Info Students

Run by students from the campus, trained and employed by the university, the Student Information Point is THE place to find all the practical information (CROUS, Caf, mutual insurance companies, STAR, etc.) and good deals (cultural, associative, sporting or scientific events offered by Rennes 1 or by the associations). A place of conviviality and exchange between students, the "PIE" also acts as a relay between students and university services.

The Beaulieu Information Point is located in Hall 43, above the Astrolabe cafeteria.


The Beaulieu campus has a large number of sports facilities (football pitches, basketball courts, sports halls) available to students and staff of the university and managed by SIUAPS.

The Diapason, the cultural space of Rennes 1, is also located on the Beaulieu campus.
