Support and accompaniment : AMU acts for its students


In the context of the health crisis, Aix-Marseille University is maintaining its commitment and continues to deploy solidarity aid for the benefit of the increasing number of students using it.

In order to facilitate access to information and to limit excessive travel, one-stop-shops have been set up on all campuses; they are coupled with food parcel distributions every Thursday between 11am and 1pm. Students will find there the services of the Student Life Office, International Relations, the University Integration and Orientation Service and the Inter-University Service for Preventive Medicine and Health Promotion), among others.

Our objective: to maintain the link and transmit - in a short time - concrete answers to the questions and needs of new students, among others.

  • Food aid - parcels, meals, groceries : The increase in student requests can be seen on many sites. Hand in hand with the student associations, AMU co-organises the distribution of food parcels on all campuses: distributions spread throughout the week with the UNEF, every Thursday with the FAMI, every Saturday with the association Friday 13, soon to be set up with the UNI.
  • Since 9 November, the cafeterias and certain RU of the CROUS have been offering a take-away meal formula for 1€ for scholarship holders (3.30€ for non-scholarship holders) with the possibility of buying 2 meals a day at these prices.
