Savoie Mont Blanc University

Multiple locations
With 14 000 students, a rich variety of multidisciplinary education and 19 research laboratories with an international reputation, the Université Savoie Mont Blanc is an establishment on a human scale which combines proximity with its territories, founder membership of the Consortium of Universities of Grenoble Alpes and a wide perspective on Europe and the world.


Jean-Baptiste Marcoz, politician and professor of mathematics, bequeathed his entire fortune to the City of Chambéry in 1834, founded the first professional school and in 1890 allowed the construction of the initial buildings of the current Presidency of the university. A vice-rectorate was established in Chambéry in 1860, then a rectorate in 1862, which will be kept until 1920.


It offers short courses (university diplomas in technology, university diplomas) and long courses (generalist, specialist or vocational first degrees (licences), masters degrees by research or vocational masters degrees, engineering diplomas and doctorates), in both first level and continuing education, on a sandwich basis or including validation of experience.


The research activities of the 700 research-teaching staff and full-time researchers at the Université Savoie Mont Blanc take place in 19 research laboratories which cover four fields of scientific research:

  • Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry
  • Geo-sciences and environment studies
  • Intelligent Systems and advanced technologies
  • Organisations and territories, representations and the cognitive sciences

Student services

To facilitate student success, and especially those in their first year of the Licence programme, the Université Savoie Mont Blanc promotes teaching in small groups and the provision of tutorials.

Housing services

The Université Savoie Mont Blanc has a privileged partnership with the CROUS (Centre Régional des Oeuvres Universitaires et Scolaires) in order to provide bedrooms in universitary residences to a maximum of students welcomed as part of a partnership or an exchange programme, but unfortunately, we cannot garantee accommodation for everybody.

Campus life

On its three university campus sites at Annecy-le-Vieux, Le Bourget-du-Lac and Jacob-Bellecombette, it offers particularly attractive living and studying conditions, at the heart of an exceptional environment, between lakes and mountains.
