Université de Savoie
The university was founded over a period in the 1960s and '70s. Wanting to avoid a straight choice between the two biggest towns of the Savoie/Haute-Savoie region, the authorities decided to set up a campus in each city for different areas of study.
- The Annecy-le-Vieux campus (near Annecy) is the university's "technology institute" (IUT), and teaches engineering-related subjects and business and adminsitration related subjects.
- Jacob-Bellecombette (1.5km south of Chambéry) is the campus for students of languages, literature, social sciences, law and economics. It has a library, sports hall and one cafeteria. Chambéry is the home of the university's presidence and administrative buildings.
- The Technolac campus at Bourget-du-Lac (12km north of Chambéry) teaches science.
