Sport and Leisure - Sport at U.Porto

At the University of Porto, we take very seriously the promotion of healthy and active lifestyles among the community. To this end, CDUP-UP provides a sports and physical activity programme open to all members of U.Porto and the general public.

Combat the stress of exams in a zumba class, take a break from work for a weight-training session, swim in one of the most modern university sports complexes in Europe, play football in the historic - and now renovated - University of Porto Stadium or compete in the most important national and international sports events. All this is now within the reach of the members of U.Porto!

The main promoter of this dynamic is the U.Porto Sports Centre (CDUP-UP), which provides several sports facilities and several options of sports for the enjoyment of the academic community and the general public.

Whether the goal is leisure, well-being or competition, you can always count on the help and guidance of our qualified and specialized technicians.


Open to the whole community, the UPFit Programme encompasses over 40 fitness, aquatic, bodybuilding, body and mind, dance and rhythm, combat, modalities and adapted sports activities. And the prices are unbeatable!

As a UPFit member, you can build your own training plan, from Monday to Saturday, with no strings attached. The UPFit Health service also offers nutrition consultations and body assessments.

What if it were possible to go to class on an electric bicycle? And if these bicycles were provided by the University itself? This is the proposal of the U-Bike project, a pioneer programme that makes available more than 200 electric bicycles for rent to the entire U.Porto community. The aim is to encourage cycling mobility, while contributing to a healthy campus.

For more information, contact CDUP-UP.
