Jean-Baptiste Marcoz, politician and professor of mathematics, bequeathed his entire fortune to the City of Chambéry in 1834, founded the first professional school and in 1890 allowed the construction of the initial buildings of the current Presidency of the university. A vice-rectorate was established in Chambéry in 1860, then a rectorate in 1862, which will be kept until 1920.

Student services

To facilitate student success, and especially those in their first year of the Licence programme, the Université Savoie Mont Blanc promotes teaching in small groups and the provision of tutorials.

Housing services

The Université Savoie Mont Blanc has a privileged partnership with the CROUS (Centre Régional des Oeuvres Universitaires et Scolaires) in order to provide bedrooms in universitary residences to a maximum of students welcomed as part of a partnership or an exchange programme, but unfortunately, we cannot garantee accommodation for everybody.

Student Life
