Eating well for less There are various solutions throughout the city

If you are having difficulties finding money for food, you can get help from the CROUS and various charity associations in the city.


From the start of the 2020 academic year, students with a social scholarship will be able to enjoy the CROUS restaurants and cafeterias for €1. See terms and conditions.
Last call

The operation Last Call offers high-quality unsold products for low prices every day.

The idea is simple: once the CROUS catering points close, all products with short expiry dates from the campus' cafeterias are sent to the Intermezzo self-service restaurant. They will then be available to buy for just €1.

From 7 p.m. to 8 p.m. at your self-service Intermezzo.

The social service
If you cannot pay for your CROUS meals and are having difficulties covering your needs. You can make an appointment with a social assistant at the CROUS Grenoble Alpes to find a solution adapted to your situation.
