ACCOMMODATION IN VALENCIENNES

RUBIKA does not have a boarding school but Valenciennes offers many housing opportunities, in public or private residences or apartments. The student housing most requested by first year students are undoubtedly the CROUS university residences. Specially designed to accommodate students, they offer comfortable rooms or studios for a particularly reasonable price. If there is no room left, do not hesitate to turn to private student residences such as Les Estudines Valenciennes, located 3 minutes from the campus and with which we have a partnership.

🏠 The average rent in Valenciennes is 389 euros including charges for a studio apartment. During the course of their studies, many students choose to rent a studio apartment.

WELLNESS AND SPORT

RUBIKA makes the well-being of its students a priority.​ Our commitment goes through various services and awareness-raising actions: health forum « Kenkō », intervention of experts and of course, the promotion of sports activities. Sport participates dynamically in the physical and mental development of students. It is also an important vector of productivity, creativity, communication and team spirit. In addition to the  free activities available on the campus (yoga, basketball, ping-pong), the Bureau des Sports RUBIKA (RUBIKA Sports Office) offers its members sports outings (laser game, bowling, skating rink) in partnership with the host structures.

ASSOCIATIVE LIFE

The associative life of RUBIKA is managed by the BDE (Bureau des Etudiants)​ (Students’ Office), a 1901-type association managed by representatives elected at the beginning of the school year. The BDE federates students around extra-curricular activities. These activities include contests, festive events, partnerships, trips, workshops, and many others. The events organized and financed by the association allow each student to meet fellow students from other tracks and years.

More than an event organizer, the BDE is a representative body that listens to students to help them carry out their projects and make their voices heard by the administration and local institutions.
