Housing services

The network of university residences, apartments and suites of SASUBI are intended to accommodate displaced students, enrolled in the University of Beira Interior and, preferably, scholarship holders. These homes provide several services that may be of interest to the student, and whose applications are formalized on an annual basis, in the determined periods by the services. The analysis of each application is based on the evaluation criteria defined in the regulation of the halls of residence of SASUBI.

Library services

The library of the University of Beira Interior, in comparison with other secular university libraries, is too young. Very recently, by Rector's proposal and decision of the General Council of UBI (2014), it has also joined the UBI’s Graphic Services and Publications, which are called Typography. 

Medical services

Service offer:

  • Medicine at work (compulsory examinations: regular and occasional entrance medical exams, clinical analyses – electrocardiogram at rest, eye exam-“visiotest”, verification of the vaccination plan and blood pressure, and biometrics).
  • Preventive medicine and sports medicine.
  • Nutrition consultations
  • Physiotherapy appointment

Sports facilities

The main mission of the Cuture and Sports sector of the Social Action Services of the University of Beira Interior (SASUBI) is to promote the regular practice of sports by the entire academic community of UBI.

This sector aims to:

  • Promote the academic and sporting spirit, as well as streamline the socialization and the exchange of experiences among students of UBI;
  • Increase exchanges between Portuguese and other university communities from other countries;
  • Promote a healthy lifestyle.

Student clubs

Students are the ones who give life to institutions and cheer the places of knowledge, cultural and enjoyment and creation. Their scientific background can be complemented by integrating groups whose purpose is to promote a particular course, activity, culture or sport.

At UBI there are several associations or groups which the student can sign up to make his academic life more productive and stimulating.

Student Reviews

A familiar university, a great place to learn
Anonymous rated 4 out of 5 stars

My overall opinion about UBI is pretty good. Although it is a relatively small university with around 9000 students, it has a lot to offer and a wide variety of degrees available. At UBI, you can encounter the right environment to study and succeed in life. There is a wide variety of projects you can join as well and make your studies less stressful and more interesting....

The town atmosphere
Alexandre rated 4 out of 5 stars

I would highlight the city&#39;s culture, atmosphere, and price. The town is small and everyone lives at a maximum of 15 minutes walk, it&#39;s very cozy. It&#39;s a very cheap city. The only thing is the education quality. As expected from a small-town university, the education quality can be pretty underwhelming. <br><i> Review provided by EDUopinions...

Relaxed Environment
Rodrigo rated 3 out of 5 stars

Even though UBI has its flaws, the working and social environments are some of the best I&#39;ve seen. The shear will and dedication of the students who work day and night on their projects and classes lift anyone&#39;s spirits to new and far reaching levels. Besides, there&#39;s always time for a party or a get-together to release all the accumulated energy from daily...
