In September, a new student dormitory opened in the Presqu’île neighborhood, just a five-minute tram ride from Grenoble Institute of Technology’s Phelma engineering school and right across from GreEN-ER. The 300-student dorm is named after Geneviève-Jourdain, a Grenoble Institute of Technology faculty member who pioneered signal processing and who passed away in 2006.
One thing that makes this dorm unique is the 34 one-bedroom apartments for couples and siblings. There are also studio apartments, three-bedroom apartments for students wishing to live with roommates, as well as handicapped-accessible units. The 260 units are managed by CROUS. The entire dorm is equipped with wireless internet access, has a study room, an outdoor space, a bike room, a gym, and a multipurpose room. Students who don’t live there can also use the dorm’s student club facilities, cafeteria, and health center.
