Student welcome

The conditions for studying and student life are an important factor in the national and international appeal of the site. Services for welcoming and support French and international student have been developed.

L'Accueil - Welcome Desk

The new space for all students and researchers in Toulouse and the Midi-Pyrénées region has been open since 1 September 2015 and has already informed and support more than 20 000 visitors in the new premises of the Université Fédérale Toulouse Midi-Pyrénées, located at 41 allées Jules Guesde, Toulouse.

Studying and conducting research in good conditions require that we respond to a whole series of concerns: accommodation, moving around, accessing cultural and sports activities, guarding against health risks and caring  for yourself, orienting yourself in a city, a region or a country that you discover, often for the first time, how to get involved and take initiatives, working, receiving the administrative authorisation to study in France, knowing how to study with a disability etc.

The Université Fédérale Toulouse Midi-Pyrénées with its university members and large schools have sought to support the lives of students and researchers in Toulouse and the Midi-Pyrénées.

This new welcome programme has been operational in the new premises of the Federal University in partnership with the Prefecture of the Haute-Garonne, the CAF of the Haute-Garonne and the Crous Toulouse - Midi-Pyrénées in a dedicated space of 300 m2.
