Student Information Points (PIE)

Run by on-campus students who are trained and employed by the university, the Student Information Points are the place to find practical information (CROUS, CAF, mutual insurance companies, STAR, etc.) and things to do (cultural, sports or scientific events run by the University of Rennes or by the associations). These information points are places where students can meet and exchange in a friendly atmosphere, and they also act as a relay between students and the university services.

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


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 the sports department SIUAPS.

Le Diapason, the cultural venue of the University of Rennes, is also located on Beaulieu campus.
