Student services

The University of Cantabria is not content merely to teach its students. Aware of what the time at university means for the student’s personal and professional development, the University provides an academic and psychological guidance service, coordinated by the UC Orientation System (SOUCAN). The organisation of practical workshops on study techniques and anxiety control prior to examinations, assistance for students with integration difficulties, and the coordination of a tutoring network in the centres are only some of the activities organised by this service connected to the University Information Network.

Housing services

The most popular and affordable type of accommodation is sharing a rented flat with other students, either Spanish or foreign. The monthly cost per person is around €200-300, without including utilities. In most cases, a deposit must be paid on signing the contract, and is usually equivalent to a month’s rent. This deposit is not returnable if the tenant leaves the flat before the end of the contract. Flats are furnished (beds, tables, chairs and full kitchen), but usually they do not have either bed linen or towels, which must be provided by the student, and they usually have a Wi-Fi connection.

Library services

The University of Cantabria Library (BUC) is a privileged point to search for and access information. To this end, it provides students and lecturers with documentary resources at nine sites in the University with 2,150 access points.

ICT services

To study at the University of Cantabria is to experience new technologies. Classrooms and laboratories are fitted with advanced equipment to further the progress of knowledge. These infrastructures are supported by a computer network designed to include the latest technologies.

The spreading of knowledge and culture is one of the University of Cantabria’s priorities. Throughout the year the campus is host to a variety of different exhibitions, congresses, courses, lectures and concerts, which make the institution one of the cultural focal points of the city and its surroundings.
