Since its foundation, the University has been spread over two cities – therefore, based on two major hubs –, namely Braga and Guimarães.

In the three Campi – Gualtar Campus, in Braga, Azurém and Couros Campi, in Guimarães –, the University stands out for having reference modern infrastructures and for being open to the community and to the world as a multicultural and multilingual space.
