Associations and community life
When you come to Université Gustave Eiffel, you will be joining a university community of nearly 17,000 students. This is an ideal opportunity to enjoy an active campus life alongside your studies and to get involved in associations and community life.
Whether you want to get involved in the democratic life of the university or create an association, at Université Gustave Eiffel we offer you different ways of getting involved, depending on your interests and convictions.
By getting involved, you are also enhancing your career and facilitating your professional integration.
Many student associations are housed at the university and work in a wide variety of fields, creating a dynamic campus life.
If you would like to create an association, the Student Life Department is available to assist you throughout this process.
Also, the Université Gustave Eiffel Solidarity and Development Fund for Student Initiatives (Fonds de Solidarité et de Développement des Initiatives Étudiantes - FSDIE) aims to help associations and/or student groups to carry out their projects by awarding them a grant. Projects may aim to develop a voluntary student initiative, particularly in one or more of the following areas: culture, sports, social action, health and disability, education, civic participation, the environment or humanitarian work. They may also involve training students in the various areas of student representation and associations.
Your involvement can also be recognised through Cross-Curricular Units ( Unités d'Enseignement d'ouverture - UEO).
‘An audiovisual university association’ would be the serious way to describe 803Z, ‘a friendly, united collective’ would be a cooler way, and a more pretentious way would be ‘the Université Gustave Eiffel cinema association’. The best way to describe 803Z is simply ‘803Z’.
The goal of the Marne-la-Vallée Student Assembly (Assemblée Étudiante Marne-la-Vallée - AEM) is to represent all Université Gustave Eiffel students, by defending their study conditions and promoting their projects. AEM and all of its clubs also develop projects focusing on the major issues we students face today.
L'As de cœur is a student association whose objective is to put the skills and resources of its members to use for humanitarian, aid and development causes. Our projects take place in France and also abroad. For the past four years, we have participated in the 4L Trophy humanitarian race and have organised numerous collections of donations for various projects (clothes, toys, bottle tops, etc.).
Student life is what we’re all about, and we love organising events. Our student centre is open every day and is a friendly place to come to, with sofas, table football, table tennis and a microwave!
We organise parties, sports tournaments, orientation events and we can give you discounts at our partners.
In addition, every year we organise an integration weekend, a ski trip and we release a new clothing collection!

In the future, we will be setting up training courses on using and repairing equipment.
The goal of our association is to promote and practice the understanding of robotics and related sciences, including electronics, mechatronics, mechanics, computer science and the Internet of Things.

If you would like to propose assignments in another field, we are willing to consider them.

The student vice-presidency
Since January 2021, the elected student vice-president is Enora Lorcy. She is supported by three deputy vice-presidents: Inès Pasquier, Roland Panzou and Tanneguy Allaire.
The Student Parliament, a first in France, is a decision-making and representative body for the students at Université Gustave Eiffel, alongside the Board of Directors and the Academic Council. The body is chaired by the Student Vice-President, and plays a central role in student life, university life and educational issues.
The Parliament brings together elected students and members of student associations, and allows for peer-to-peer debate.
On the central councils
Student representatives are elected every two and a half years. Two students sit on the Administrative Board and 12 students sit on the Academic Board, including four PhD students. All of these elected representatives sit on the Student Parliament.
On the component councils
Student representatives participate in the component councils and are elected every two years by the students of the relevant component. They participate in its organisation, guidance and management. They also sit on the Student Parliament.
Student representatives are chosen at the beginning of the year or semester from a tutorial, amphitheatre group or class, depending on the organisation of the courses. They are valuable contacts and can participate in working groups on campus life.
The university is aware of the need to raise awareness and disseminate these issues. True to its commitment to society, the university has set up a dedicated mission: the Sustainable Development and Social Responsibility (DD&RS) mission
As a student, you have the opportunity to become a DD&RS officer and to participate in the development of an institutional policy and to raise awareness throughout the year among students and staff.
The two roles of the Sustainable Development and Social Responsibility mission
Raising awareness of sustainable development among staff and students through key events
- The Student Sustainable Development Week, initiated by the Student Network for an Ecological and United Society (Réseau Etudiant pour une Société Écologique et Solidaire - RESES)
- European Green Week, an initiative of the European Union
- The European Week for Waste Reduction, initiated by the French Agency for Ecological Transition (ADEME)
Creating a Sustainable Development and Social Responsibility policy
The second role of the DD&RS mission is to create a policy made up of many projects divided into several themes:
- Strategy and governance
- Education and training
- Research and innovation
- Environmental management (lowering greenhouse gas emissions, reducing waste, respect for biodiversity, sustainable food)
- Social policy
The Gender Equality Mission works to ensure the promotion of gender equality within the institution and, more generally, respect for people of all sexes and genders, regardless of their sexual orientation.
Through support work, prevention, training and communication, the Gender Equality Mission at Université Gustave Eiffel fulfils the following missions:
- Conducting and supporting work towards an inclusive society in the field of research, training and cultural life of the university;
- Participating in the reflection on the ways to encourage positive developments in human resources, based in particular on the institution’s social report;
- Participating in the fight against sexual harassment and sexism;
- Developing awareness-raising activities for staff and students to identify good practices in favour of gender equality and supporting their implementation;
- Helping to give greater visibility to all the actions carried out internally and externally by the institution, in particular promoting the initiatives undertaken by the university's components;
- Encouraging the implementation of gender-neutral communication in the institution, including the drafting of administrative forms that respect diversity of sex and gender;
- Promoting the dissemination of the image of an institution concerned with its social responsibility, in particular through the implementation of gender-neutral communication in internal and external communication documents.
