Due to the health crisis linked to the COVID-19 outbreak, and in application of the decision of the French President and the Prime Minister, the University of Poitiers has been closed since the 16th of March 2020 « until further notice ».

These measures concern all of its structures: the different departments, the teaching units, the central administrative services, the pooled services and the research centers.

A continuity plan is in place. It enables our university to adapt its functioning and organization, and thus ensure its basic activities, in terms of administration, teaching and research. At the University of Poitiers, our biggest priority is to protect the health of the staff and students.  

The University de Poitiers strongly advises its students and staff to check their e-mails regularly, to stay connected to its various media, and to consult the dedicated website.   

Thank you for applying the recommendations that will be updated on this site as information and directives transmitted by the French Ministry of Higher Education, Research and Innovation.
