Info Relay Students
Run by students on campus, trained and employed by the university, the Student Information Points are 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 act as a relay between students and university services.
