Personal comments
Well, there is not a really big campus. So, the only accomodations found in it, are principally for students who live far from the University. One of the good thing, I think, is that we are in contact with another nationalities... And I like that. We have rooms for 2 students and also personnal rooms. And the rooms are quite big enough..So, its really fine... I love it !!

Overall
the course is a good one, teachers are very helpful. they will go every length to ensure that a student understands what has been taught. Teach also have very good relationships with students. University on the whole is very friendly and is flexible in terms of everything. However, long bureaucracy of the country makes somethings impossible for foreign students. Aside that, school is great

I can only speak for my own course and faculty (FCT), but the professors are very helpful and competent. The course content is logical and structured and I have only met friendly people so far, both Internationals and Portuguese.
