To guarantee a warm welcome and a high-quality academic experience, the University of Toulouse has developed a range of services and schemes for students. These collective projects cover all the key areas of student life, including courses, healthcare and culture.
Welcoming and integrating students
Université de Toulouse is committed to welcoming and supporting students in the best possible conditions, thanks to a range of innovative schemes and services:
- The Welcome Desk, a single port of call for students and researchers in Toulouse and its region, offering the chance to carry out all your formalities in one place.
- The Toul’Box offers service packs to help students arriving in Toulouse to settle in and find their feet.
This initiative was rewarded with the “Bienvenue en France” label, an endorsement for French higher education institutions that make efforts to welcome international students.
Since 2006, University of Toulouse has organised Student Week in Toulouse and its region during September and October. This inter-university festival aims to help students settle into the region by offering a hundred or so free events in a variety of fields: culture, sport, intercultural exchanges, associations, etc.
Healthcare: inter-university service for preventive medicine and the promotion of health (Simpps)
The Simpps is the first point of contact for students with regard to healthcare and prevention matters. Present on campus, this medical and welfare service is exclusively reserved for students. Appointments are confidential and no fees are asked for up front. For more information and to make an appointment: The Simpps

Improving quality of life on campus
Toulouse campus opération
To offer a warmer welcome to students, teachers and researchers, and help improve quality of life on campus, The University of Toulouse is overseeing a vast project to modernise its campuses in Toulouse. A total of 18 projects are being managed, running up to 2023. All operations are being carried out in the framework of the eco-campus initiative.
Eco-campus is an initiative that seeks to continuously improve the environmental performance of Toulouse’s institutions and campuses. The University of Toulouse demonstrates its commitment to this initiative by carrying out awareness-raising actions, providing information and communicating about sustainable development and social responsibility within higher education, for example through the Sustainable Development competition, which encourages and supports sustainable development projects on the campuses.
