The State University of Londrina (UEL) was founded in 1970 and officially recognized as a state funded university in 1971, as a result of the merge of the existing colleges of Languages, Law, Philosophy, and Dentistry. Its location was defined to a 235 hectares campus, just outside of the city center.
UEL has a network of CENTRAL and branch libraries located both on campus and elsewhere in the city. Together they house more than 250.000 book titles, almost 400.000 journals and a number of other items, which have benefited more than 650.000 users.
Since 1998, UEL’s Physical Activity Program (NAFI) has integrated the University’s Physical Education Center with the university community (students, faculty and staff), as well as the greater community. This integration occurs through actions in the field of physical exercise related to health, accompanied and guided by teachers and academics of the center’s courses. NAFI is also the training center for the Physical Education degree program, as well as post-graduation programs in the field.
UEL is seeking international partnerships, especially under the Science without Borders program to enrich the already existing cooperation agreements. This is in addition to the active Foreign Language Institute that offers courses in Portuguese for speakers of other languages, as a means to facilitate a smooth adaptation to our campus life.
UEL´s International Relations Office – ARI/UEL is responsible for managing academic and research exchange agreements with foreign universities. The office provides support to foreign students and promotes exchanges with other countries. We also host a Center for African and Asian Studies and a Center for Japanese Cultural Studies.
