Each Crous has its own cultural service.
You can contact them to set up some artistic and associative projects and participate in artistic creation contests.


The Crous have a diversity of equipment for cultural activities. Identify the room best suited to your needs, depending on its geographic location, its type of programming, its gauge or other technical characteristics!

Every year, all Crous organize several art contests in order to value students’ creative works.

A regional jury selects the best works, which then compete at a national level and receive prizes. There are seven categories: photography, short stories, comics, short films (all under one theme that changes every year) as well as music, dance and drama.
