About the Portal

The IT services portal focuses on providing information about the use of ICT and associated services in the University of Porto.

This portal aims at bringing together all useful information that gives the academic community an opportunity to install and configure electronic resources and software in an autonomous way. These resources contribute to U.Porto's success in terms of teaching and research.

It also provides access to a vast amount of information in the form of tutorials and gives recommendations on how to use the website according to security and privacy practices. In case a user needs specific help, we provide information on how to proceed.


The mission of the IT services of U.Porto is to contribute to the strategy of the University, particularly to its digital transformation. The IT services do this by providing the best support in the fields of teaching and research, as well as by creating solutions that facilitate administrative activities.

They also prioritise information privacy and security (which involves information relative to students, teaching staff and non-teaching staff).


U.Porto's vision in the technological area is based on two pillars:

  1. The technological modernisation of the services provided and the systems created.
  2. User satisfaction when using the systems, taking into account the support needed for their daily activities.
