Life on the UTC campus
The UTC campus sites are located in various sectors of Compiegne and indeed have been integral parts of the City since the university began. To the extent that the student population represents 12% of all Compiegne inhabitants, they have radically changed the image of Compiegne. This has led to a dynamic, associative and cultural student life displaying a wide diversity. There are over 100 cultural and sports association registered with the Students’ Office (buzz-word BDE), some of which have extended their networks to have antennae in numerous other European countries. With a large number of cultural solidarity-intensive projects in town and its regional surrounds, UTC students take an active part contributing to Compiegne’s life style, thereby reinforcing the connection with the local authorities bringing “science to the heart” of the City.
