Campus life


ISTHIA offers courses on 4 different campuses: Toulouse, Foix, Cahors and Kuala Lumpur.


Student life

On the campus of the Université Toulouse – Jean Jaurès, student life is bustling. Many associations and activities keep the campus alive throughout the year. Last renovated in 2018, the infrastructure is modern and the buildings are very well equipped (the ISTHIA building is due to be renovated in the 2025 academic year). There are numerous restaurants, a gym, sports fields, large amphitheatres and a university library bathed in natural light.

ISTHIA’s student office, the Team Forum, is in charge of running student life at the institute.

Toulouse, city of sport and culture

The ville rose is well known for its great sports teams and its typical culture of southwest France. During the day and at night, Toulouse natives live by the spirit of rugby: conviviality, sharing and celebration are the key words. The city’s museums and red brick also make it an artistic and architectural location that will delight students who are interested in cultural issues. You can stroll along the banks of the Garonne, in the grounds of the fine art museum, or visit Les Abattoirs and stroll through the Raymond IV garden. From the Augustinian Museum to the Natural History Museum and the Quai des Savoirs, Toulouse has a lot to offer.

Student life

On the Ariège University Centre campus, the events and activities in student life are run by Oeuf students and Team Forum. These two associations bring together the ISTHIA, INSPE, and Geography departments that coexist on campus. Surrounded by nature, the classrooms have large windows looking out over the Pyrenees, perfect for studying in a quiet setting.

On a human scale, special attention is paid to social and health issues. At lunchtime, students can dine in a lively canteen.

Living in Ariège

This environment allows students who love the outdoors to enjoy a wide variety of mountain and nature activities.

In the heart of the Pyrenees, the region of Ariège offers a quiet living environment. In terms of tourism, there are many different options: from green landscapes like the Pic de l’Aspre to historic sites like the Foix château, there is no reason to get bored.

Foix is built on a human scale, welcoming and warm. These advantages, normally found in small villages in France, are combined with the advantages of a much larger city. Foix is a dynamic city with many shops and easy access to the motorway. Close to Spain and 2 hours from the Mediterranean Sea, it is easy to go on weekend trips.
