Every year, thousands of students from around the country and the world choose U.Porto as their new "home" That's why we put together a toolkit to help them settle in the city and in the University.
When you first arrive, you will be invited to several reception/welcoming events at the Rectory or your faculty.
The University also provides several support services, both centrally and locally (at each faculty), which respond immediately to student needs (housing, practical information about campuses and the institution, academic life, etc.).
These services work together with the Academic Support structures, providing support tailored to the individual needs of each student. Students can receive assistance and guidance in a wide variety of areas at any point of their academic life.
You can find detailed information on services, programmes, facilities, initiatives, groups and associations open to the academic community in the Student Guide.
