Rennes 2 Health and Social Services Centre (SIMPPS)
Rennes 2 University aims to provide the best conditions for students to be able to excel in their studies. An essential part of that is providing students with access to effective health and social services.
The Health and Social Services Centre (Service interuniversitaire de médecine préventive et de promotion de la santé - SIMPPS) accompanies students through their education, providing preventative and medical services, and offering assistance to students with disabilities. A team of doctors, psychiatrists, psychologists, nurses and reception staff are at your disposal and easily accessible from our Villejean campus. Some of the typical services available to students include:
- Medical consultations with doctors and nurses
- Medical-sports certificates (obligatory for sporting activities)
- Medical-psychological consultations (psychology/ psychiatric appointments)
- Specialized consultations on appointment (contraception, gynaecological consultations, etc.)
- Other services (sophrology-relaxation, first aid training)
A dietician and a nutritionist are also at your disposal and can, on appointment only, help you to balance your daily diet.
Nurses are also available to help students who would like to quit smoking.
Looking for moral support or advice on housing, scholarships, administrative procedures, etc.? Contact our office to set up an appointment with one of our social workers.
In accordance with French regulatory directives, a health prevention assessment integrating a medical, psychological and social dimension must be carried out during the first three years of one’s studies in higher education institutions. It takes the form of an interview, a review of previous immunizations and a biometric examination carried out by a nurse. A medical examination performed by a doctor will eventually be offered. Students enrolled in exchange programs may be dispensed of this obligation.
Safety at Rennes 2 University
Rennes 2 has a Security Office consisting of a manager and a number of security officers. The presence of security officers is provided day and night to assist with any emergency (health‐related, technical problems, etc) on-campus. They can be reached at: 02 99 14 20 00.
Practical Information for Emergency Services in France:
In France and in Europe, the telephone number 112 provides access to all emergency response services (police, fire department and ambulance services) from mobile or fixed lines. For the hearing impaired, special aid is available at the number 114.
Emergency procedures / Safety on campus:
Smoke detectors and fire alarms: All campus residences are equipped with smoke detectors in each room, extinguishers in corridors, evacuation alarms and emergency exits. All smoke detectors are connected to the Security Office. If a smoke detector is triggered, security officers will check the premises, and, if a fire is confirmed, they will evacuate the building. Security officers will ensure the reception of emergency assistance officers.
In case of a health/first aid emergency: If a call is made to the campus security office, staff will arrive to assess the situation and assist the person until the Emergency Medical Aid Service - the SAMU arrives on-site. Depending on the level of emergency, the person is sent to the Health Office on campus or to the nearby hospital by external assistance. For urgent (but not emergency) medical service on weekends and nights, a team of doctors are available via the service SOS Médecins (02 99 53 06 06).
