What's on At U.Porto? - Annual events

U.Porto frequently hosts conferences, seminars and exhibitions, among other events thanks to the most vibrant academic community in the country. Some of these events mobilise the entire University.

What is more exciting than our anniversary? Every year, we celebrate "University Day" on the 22nd of March with a set of initiatives. The main event occurs in the Rectory Grand Hall, where the community gathers for the Formal Sitting.

Several schools also celebrate "Faculty Day", which is open to collaborators, students, and the academic community.

U.Porto's annual events programme includes various initiatives dedicated to secondary education students. There are welcoming sessions for Portuguese and international students who enter the University every year. Some activities are organised in association with other entities (European Researchers' Night and International Museum day, among others).
