Alternative transport


In conjunction with the organization Ecoo Campus, the University has installed a carpool panel on each campus: one in Erève on the Villejean campus, one in Mazier and one in La Harpe.

These panels operate in an autonomous way: students register their offers or requests for car-pooling punctually or regularly and delete announcements whose dates have passed.


The Bicycle Repair Workshop

Inaugurated in March 2012, the bike repair workshop is now managed by the Ar Vuhez organization. The workshop is located in the heart of the Villejean campus, next to the B building. Every Wednesday from 4 pm, volunteers from the Ar Vuhez association open the workshop and provide students and non-students with all the necessary tools to maintain their bikes. Everyone should come prepared to repair their own bike (with the help of others).

Whether you are an expert or a novice, don’t hesitate to visit the workshop or contact the organization.

Using Public Transport

To get around, you can also opt for a subscription to the services of the STAR, Rennes Métropole's major transport network, directly on the Villejean campus. You can also turn to the Illenoo and SNCF networks for longer journeys. Metro, bus or self-service bike ... many student mobility offers are available in Rennes.

For more information, please see the STAR website. 

Eco-gestures to adopt

In 2015, out of a concern for environmental issues, the Universities Rennes 1 and Rennes 2 jointly launched an awareness campaign on eco-friendly actions.

Focusing on six themes - lighting, office automation, water, heating, waste and mobility - the campaign uses a humorous tone to involve users (students and staff) in energy conservation issues but also to cultivate their interest around sustainable development.
