Accommodation

The Catholic University of Portugal has a Feminine University Residence (RUF), with the purpose of providing accommodation facilities in favourable economic conditions to UCP's female university students who, due to the distance from their family residence, need to move to and stay in Lisbon. 

The RUF is located halfway from the metro stations of Cidade Universitária and Entre-Campos. It is also close to the Sete Rios station, where you can access the shuttle service to the Faculty of Medicine on the Sintra campus.
