A single reception desk

International students coming to CY Cergy Paris Université will receive a very warm welcome from the International Cooperation Department.

When you arrive, the International Cooperation Department team and French student tutors will welcome you and present the university and its services and environment : enrolment, accommodation, administrative formalities...

To make formalities easier, the university has set up a single reception desk. Thanks to this system you can carry out all your paperwork in one place (enrolment, visa, accommodation...).

At the beginning of each semester, a special welcome / orientation day is organised so that you can visit the university campus and the Cergy-Pontoise area.

This welcome day is also an opportunity to meet other international students, French students who have also studied abroad, and the university’s professors and administrative staff.

Throughout the year special cultural outings are organised for international students such as trips to local and Parisian museums, plays, etc. Geomoov, the international students' association organises many day trips as well as parties and social events.

In the Maison des étudiants (the student union, located in the Les Chênes tower) room 101 is reserved for exchange students. It’s a friendly place where you can come to meet other students. The room is equipped with a "chill out" space, a microwave/eating area and computers with Internet access. You can also pick up information and brochures on cultural activities in Cergy-Pontoise and the Paris area (or at the Cultural department on the second floor).
