Marseille Luminy site


As the regional economic and cultural capital, Marseille offers students a university environment that is favorable to their development. Marseille's campuses are at the cutting edge of research and offer exceptional technological facilities.

Living in Luminy is a unique and exotic experience. In the heart of the calanques, just a stone's throw from the sea, you will enjoy a magnificent natural setting, typically Provencal. The Luminy University Park, created in 1970 in a spirit of affiliation between education, research and business, has quickly become one of the leading scientific centers in Europe. Because of this very particular mix, the campus is constantly evolving.

At Luminy, the IUT benefits from the environment of a campus specialized in advanced technologies in the field of networks. The students benefit from all the facilities necessary for a quality student life in a splendid setting and within a limited perimeter.

The city of Marseille, which faces the sea, offers particularly attractive sports and cultural activities for students.

    Complementary health insurance Pass

    Students with scholarships or in financial difficulty, the Southern Region gives you a helping hand to finance your complementary health insurance with the Pass Mutuelles.

    It is not compulsory for students to take out a complementary health insurance policy. While some students can still benefit from their family's health insurance, others choose not to pay the monthly cost of complementary health insurance, which often leads to a lack of care due to a lack of funds. It should be noted that the price of a complementary health insurance varies according to the profile of the insured, young or old, with existing pathologies, etc. Also, single students who receive emergency student aid can apply for complementary health aid. This aid allows them not to pay for doctor and dentist consultations, treatments, nursing care and hospitalisation costs.

    Emergencies, consultation centers and useful addresses

    The city of Marseille lists all health contacts on a dedicated page.

    Situation of disability

    Aix-Marseille University's disability mission welcomes and supports students with physical, sensory or psychological disabilities, dyslexia or a long-term disabling health problem. It offers measures adapted to each student.
