Combining the conveniences of a mid-sized city with an extraordinary mountain setting, Grenoble offers culture, nightlife, sports, and more. Grenoble is also a hub of innovation, employing thousands of people in research, technology, and international business.

Community members can volunteer, get involved in arts and culture, or participate in one of 35 different sports – there’s something for everyone. International students can also join the university-sponsored, student-run international student association, IntEGre.
