Student Union & Associations

Active student societies

UniLaSalle is more than just an engineering school, it is a place to live where you can thrive and find fulfillment. Campus life is marked by many society activities, it’s the 6 to 8 — life after lectures between 6pm and 8am!

All societies come under the Association générale des étudiants, or students’ union.

Five large families offer a very wide (non-exhaustive) range of activities and you can be sure to find something for you among the ordinary and not so ordinary pursuits!

Each year group also has a Committee that fosters links between students and with the teaching staff.

“Some student union members had never done voluntary work before and the experience reveals people’s personalities. We work on the basis of accountability — each person is in charge of one or more projects.

Many have gained in self-confidence. ”

Margot Buet

Former student union committee member
