Bringing students together

The organization coordinates student activities and strives to create a feeling of belonging for all students through extensive communications campaigns and a busy calendar of student events. The Grand Cercle also runs new-student orientation programs and coordinates the activities of the student governments of each of Grenoble INP's schools and other student organizations.
Highlights of the student event calendar
The Grenoble INP Gala
The Grenoble INP Gala routinely brings in more than 2,000 attendees. It is the most prestigious event of the school year. A great entertainment program helps make each year’s Gala uniquely unforgettable.
An incubator for student organizations
Throughout the school year more than 30 student organizations give students opportunities to express themselves through sports, the arts, humanitarian projects, fun activities, and career-related programs. Student organizations are a vital part of the campus experience and give students a chance to learn valuable life skills.
Grenoble INP is particularly active in terms of student organizations, evidence of our students’ sense of initiative and responsibility. Whether you are in charge of a student organization or simply a member or participant, there is a student organization for you at Grenoble INP.
With more than 30 student organizations, there’s something for everyone!
An open door to Grenoble, one of France’s largest college towns
The Grand Cercle spearheads the Inter-University Fall Festival, which brings together student organizations from all of Grenoble’s universities and colleges through the Grenoble Student Union and Espace Vie Etudiante (EVE). The Grand Cercle makes sure that Grenoble INP students know what is happening at other schools so that they can easily expand their horizons.
Student Organization CharterIf you would like to organize a sporting event, party, or fun activity via a student organization sign the the Student Organization Charter and return it to CEVU (the academics and campus life board).
Here you will also find all of the different documents you will need depending on the type of event you plan to organize.
