Physical Health

Institut national de la recherche scientifique (INRS) provides its community with access to facilities and services that help them stay fit, both physically and mentally. Maintaining a healthy lifestyle is important for academic success and general well-being.

Gymnasiums accessible with the student card

Sports facilities in Montreal

To encourage student fitness, INRS has an agreement with ÉTS allowing INRS students to use ÉTS sports facilities. Under this agreement, you pay the same rates as ÉTS students for sports centre services and related activities. Simply present your INRS student card at our partner institution and mention that you want to register at the sports centre.

Note that Urban Studies students have access to the Université du Québec à Montréal (UQAM) gym through the joint study programs.
