Facilities available to the general public

Sports facilities and equipment

The IMT Atlantique gymnasiums regularly host local and sometimes national university meetings and competitions. When its students are not using them, the university makes these facilities available to other users. The university has therefore signed agreements with local authorities (Carquefou, Plouzané), other local educational establishments (Polytech, etc.), associations, sports clubs and university groups. From time to time, the university is called upon by the UGSEL (Union Générale Sportive de l'Enseignement Libre) or the UNSS (Union Nationale du Sport Scolaire) for events (European handball championship for example, etc.).
The Everest Race, a race organised by our students and open to all, and the Trail de la Chantrerie in Nantes are two of the high points in the university year, when the general public are invited to our campus.
Finally, local companies can also benefit from access to our facilities basis: Ifremer, Autocruise, CLS, Schneider Electrique and Thalès, to name but a few.

Documentary resources

Books can be borrowed from our libraries by other institutions through an "interlibrary loan" procedure. Agreements with neighbouring establishments (Enib, Lycée la Pérouse and Thalès sur Brest; the Nantes university libraries) allow their users to borrow books from the university. Through the Doc@brest network we also participate in conferences and round tables with information professionals.

Lecture halls and other spaces

On its 3 campuses the university offers access to its facilities, including its incubator, research platforms, telepresence and videoconference rooms and restaurants (in Brest and Nantes). IMT Atlantique also opens its doors during exhibitions and conferences. The Gala following the graduation ceremony is an important festive event for the university, and many participants come to the university to celebrate on this occasion. 
The FabLabs are creative spaces open to all on the Brest and Rennes campuses. Machines, tools and equipment are made available to all to enable anyone to fulfil specific creative, innovative, and personal projects.
The campuses also provide a stage, depending on the year, for theatrical, orchestral, and choral rehearsals (Chorale des écoles de la Chantrerie in Nantes, an orchestra which brings together students from several universities; a choir composed of external and internal students, affiliated to Euterpe in Brest). In Rennes, our students host a film club on campus and invite those from Centrale Supélec.
