There are activities for every type of student, from the humanitarian La Boutic' to the musical Club Mix to the fun of Club Magic. There are over 45 clubs for students to get involved with during their time in Belfort

Sports are important in French culture, and football (soccer) is the most popular sport in France. At Le Bureau des Sport, students can get involved with rugby teams, soccer, body building, capoeira (an extreme dance form), and other activities, both team oriented and individually. Le Bureau de Sport also arranges events and annual competitions with the other technology universities in France, allowing more opportunities for international students to engage with French students.
