UFF was founded in 1960.
There are a number of academic departments:
UFF researchers develop cutting-edge projects and products in partnership with other universities around the globe.
The Buddy Program for foreign students aims to promote the integration of foreign students with UFF students and with the university in general. Buddies are responsible for assisting the foreign student upon their arrival in Brazil by helping them with their adaptation to the Brazilian academic routine.
As student residence is unavailable for foreign students at UFF, the International Cooperation Office provides students with a list of options of accommodation in Niterói, and puts them in contact with a network of former students who will be glad to share information on room and board available in the city.
The Universidade Federal Fluminense has currently over 20 libraries, housing a comprehensive collection for research and an array of electronic catalogues available on online.
Its headquarters are located in the city of Niterói and its campuses can be found in various parts of the state of Rio de Janeiro, as a result of a strong decentralization policy. There is also an out-of-state campus in Oriximiná, in the Amazon rainforest.
At UFF, students are also encouraged to take part in extracurricular activities such as LGBTQI+ groups, religious meetings, women and race equality groups, athletics (sports associations), students’ associations, community outreach work, etc.
