About Aveiro


Aveiro is a dynamic, medium-sized city with about 75,000 inhabitants. It offers much of what big cities can offer, but without the urban chaos or loss of quality of life. Integrated in a region of great industrial development, Aveiro is nowadays a city of commerce and services, as well as a culture and leisure centre. This young and dynamic city has a great deal to offer visitors, for example: the examples of Art Nouveau, the Aveiro lagoon and the saltpans, the canals that give the city its nickname,  “The Venice of Portugal”, the long beaches a few minutes away from the city and the many green spaces.

Created in 1973, the University of Aveiro quickly became one of the most dynamic and innovative universities in Portugal.  With its three campi, the University of Aveiro spans the whole district. It is located in three cities: Aveiro, where the main campus is situated (Campus Santiago), Águeda and Oliveira de Azeméis. Campus Santiago, overlooking the Aveiro lagoon, is a prize-winning Campus, renowned for its many buildings designed by famous Portuguese architects. Its buildings are purpose-built for teaching and research, administrative and technical support, and include halls of residence for students and staff, libraries, bookshop, canteens, bars and restaurants, sports facilities, laundry, post-office, stores, bank, kindergarten – all this on one campus, surrounded by the natural beauty of the old saltpans and only a short distance from the city centre.
