Engineering and art schools, Sciences Po, Rennes School of Business… The city has no shortage of renowned education institutions. But it also perfectly understands what students need and responds with an extensive range of leisure activities with the use of its famed cultural and sporting facilities as well as festivals which cater to all tastes. A city on a human scale with a dense transport network and a wonderful environment to live in, Rennes has something for everyone. This is why we have established two student residences in neighbourhoods which are perfect for the young: Saint-Martin and Gayeulles.
