The house of associations

The student associations of ENSA Normandie are grouped together in a single place in the school grounds: the House of Associations.


The BDE is a student association that intervenes in several areas. First of all, the cooperative which allows students to have access to very competitive prices for their material; then the organization of events which offer students moments of meetings and sharing, within and outside the School (...). Cultural events are organized by the BDE, which offers meetings on subjects related to their studies. The BDE is an actor of the student socialization by organizing, among others, the integration weekend for the first years, the Christmas meal, a Halloween costume party as well as "afterworks" for the students to meet after classes. This association is, finally, an attentive ear and open arms to all people coming towards it.

The BDS is a student sports association whose functioning is based on the idea of staying healthy, competing with other schools and promoting ENSA Normandie in France. Formerly a unit within the BDE, the association is now independent.

The BDS offers training in a variety of sports every week and 3 major sporting events each year:

>The Sup-Cup: a day of sporting competition bringing together the universities and schools of the Rouen metropolitan area,

>Les Archiglisse: a week-long ski trip involving several schools,

>Les Archipiades: a weekend of sporting competition between schools from all over France.

The Red Factory

The Red Factory is a cultural and artistic association founded and managed by students of the École nationale supérieure d'architecture de Normandie.
The major project of the association is the organization of Artmeetings. The principle is simple: to invite artists to come within the ENSA Normandie in order to meet a public of students (but not only) and to support the exchange with the artistic and cultural environment.

Based on this idea, the aim is also to present a variety of art forms and practices. However, in order to break away from the classic codes of an exhibition and to make it lively, the presence, exchange and meeting of artists is a major desire.

Each year the association also organises more intimate events at the beginning and end of the year to meet up after the summer holidays and to integrate the newcomers or to celebrate the end of the season and say goodbye and good luck for the exams.

R.E.C (Radio Étudiante Culturelle) was born from the initiative of a student in Master 1 of Architecture and a radio host, who both have the objective to create a free and independent radio, intended primarily for the students of ENSA Normandie.
Its actions aim at making its listeners discover the 7 main arts, among which we find architecture, music, cinema, literature or theater.
Via the web platform and podcasts on Mixcloud, REC can be listened to at any time of the day!
