The Social Action Services of the University of Algarve have 9 University Residences, with 558 beds, for students with initial training and master's degrees. The scholarship holders covered by the Scholarship Allocation System have priority, and the remaining students can benefit from this support, if the number of beds available allows it.
The residences are located in Faro, Gambelas and Portimão and have different structures, being organized by residential buildings or apartments.
Designed to give students all the necessary conditions for their well-being and located next to the various UAlg campuses, the residences have rooms with bed linen and towels, equipped kitchen, lounge / study room, TV and Internet access. The SAS also have employees dedicated to the maintenance and cleaning of common spaces, which are also in charge of the treatment of bed linen and towels in the homes. All homes have a washing machine for free use by residents.
Teachers and researchers (national and foreign) can also count on the support of the Social Action Services of the University of Algarve, which provide for your convenience 6 residences, with a global capacity of 56 beds.
Living in one of our University Residences allows you to enjoy decent facilities, at affordable prices, in a sharing environment that facilitates integration into the academic environment.
