UFRGS does not have student houses for international students, but Relinter offers support for these students, helping them to find adequate housing.
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.
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.
It was a great university and I learned a lot about research activities. I have enrolled in research projects all the time I was in the university. The problem was a lack of financial support from the Brazilian government.
