Discover the campus

During your studies, you will work on one or more of the University of Bordeaux campuses. Wherever you are working, the campuses offer a wide range of services.

Food and dining

Cafeterias and restaurants are accessible on every campus and provide healthy, reasonably priced meals. The CROUS (Regional Centre of Student Social Services) runs these restaurants for students and staff of the University of Bordeaux.

Did you know?

Part of the cost of your meal in staff restaurants may be covered by the university, depending on your salary index. The restaurants that fall under this category are those of the CROUS, Charles Perrens hospital, the INRAE, the CNRS, Dax hospital and the amicale des personnels, or staff association, of the rectorat de Bordeaux (local education authority).


All University of Bordeaux campuses located in the Bordeaux Metropolitan area are reachable by tram and by bus, and have V3 (bike sharing) parking stations nearby. Car parks are open to students of all campuses and are within a 10-minute walk.

Did you know?

The University of Bordeaux encourages students to use alternative means of transport rather than their own cars. If you use public transport, cycle or carshare, you can benefit from financial support from the university.
