Research

  •  One of the biggest distinctions of the highly qualified training of human resources at UFRGS is the emphasis on research, and the knowledge derived from it. The communication between state of the art knowledge and research activities gives undergraduate and graduate classes the opportunity to consciously educate a citizen of its social, environmental and ethical responsibility.
  • UFRGS has more than 700 registered groups working with basic or applied research from many different fields. In total, approximately 14 thousand people are involved in scientific and technologic research activities, including undergraduate and graduate students, laboratory technicians, professors and visitors.

Services

Housing services

UFRGS does not have student houses for international students, but Relinter offers support for these students, helping them to find adequate housing. 

Library services

  • The library system at UFRGS (SBU), coordinated by the Central library and composed of 32 libraries, is responsible for offering services of specialized information.
  • The reserves are constituted of books, scientific journals, magazines, CD-ROMs, DVD’s, films, photos, maps, a sheet music collection, discs, rare artworks, among other types of documents.

Student Life

Campus life

UFRGS has four campi (Centro, Vale, Olímpico and Saúde). Each one of them is divided in blocks and subareas. It is important for you to know that Porto Alegre is a relatively big city and that these campi are located in different points in the city. Transportation from one to the other requires using bus, car or motorbike and it can be time consuming. Therefore, while choosing which disciplines you will enroll in, you should think about this distance between UFRGS campi. We suggest you schedule classes at the same campus, checking their timetable.

Sports facilities

The Campus Olímpico offers several classes in different sports for all international students free of cost. Several activities are offered with professors’ supervision (bodybuilding, water sports, synchronized swimming, dance, olympic gymnastics, collective sports and wrestling). A timetable with activities and sports is available for request.
