University of French Polynesia

The campus of Outumaoro covers an area of more than 15 hectares, including more than 15 000 m2 of buildings. Overlooking Punaauia and Faa’a communes and facing the island of Moorea, the UFP facilities include :

- Lecturer theaters,

- Research labs, meeting rooms, screening rooms, computer rooms, a language laboratory,

- A library, with 50 000 books, 350 subscriptions to periodicals, video tapes, DVD (over 1000 titles), CD-Rom (160), and an online electronic documentation (databases, corpus texts, journals). The Polynesian fund has more than 1800 books.

- A sports hall,

- A restaurant, a cafeteria and a student residence of 72 rooms.

The University of French Polynesia is expecting to be integrated into its environment, contributing to the training of young people and adults in the interest of the Territory’s sustainable development, meeting the needs of the Polynesian society.

The University has a particularly important role to play in the use of new communication technologies; to stay in touch with international research centres and universities, but also to make knowledge accessible from all French Polynesia’s islands.
