The great and freezing Law Lisbon University

Overall
I was really impressed When I first arrived at Lisbon University. 
The access to the campus is super easy because there is a subway entrance inside “University City”. Talking about it, the campus is almost a city, the Law University is enormous as well as the the law library. There are three cafeterias and university restaurants with really accessible prices for lunch and dinner, which was really great considering my university condition. 
About the infrastructure, the University is beautiful and imposing, there are big theater rooms, a lot of classrooms, study rooms, the Professors are excellent and worldwide known, despite some of them barely appear at University, unfortunately. 
I could say more two problems: 
The first one is the bureaucracy. If you have any question or problem, you will probably lose your day to solve it. You must go in person and take a password to be answered and wait until your turn comes (and it will take some of your time and patience). 
The second one is that is almost impossible to be inside University in the winter. Neither the classrooms nor the University have heaters, at all. The library freezes, all the rooms freezes, you can barely stay inside any part of the University.

I don't recommend it unless you are interested in learning the Portuguese language and have a good handle on the language.
