University of Beira Interior


The first steps on the path of what is now the University of Beira Interior (UBI) were given in the 70, when the Instituto Politécnico da Covilhã (IPC) was born, in 1973.


UBI should assume itself as a vibrant and alive community, recognized for the quality of its performance in teaching, research and knowledge transfer, and with a strong commitment to the region.

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.
