Social action

The Social Action Services (SAS) of the University of Algarve (UAlg) are a support body for students with administrative and financial autonomy. Its main objective is the granting of economic and social aid, which promotes equal opportunities.

SAS provide a wide range of services in several areas. In addition to access to scholarships, students can apply for university accommodation in residences with all the necessary conditions of habitability and comfort.

With regard to food, students find, in all Campi da UAlg, bars, canteens and restaurants with guaranteed quality at affordable prices. Those who study at UAlg can also count, through this social structure, with clinical support, and can resort to consultations of various specialties.

In a policy of promoting health and well-being, the Social Action Services also support the performance of various sports and cultural activities.

With a vast work team attentive to the needs of students and always ready to act, SAS contribute to making studying at the University of Algarve an even better personal and academic experience.
