Fraústo da Silva Student Residence

We would like to inform you that Universidade NOVA de Lisboa is renovating university residences.
This renovation, which will be based on several innovative and essential aspects for buildings intended to accommodate students, will allow NOVA to provide comfortable but affordable accommodation options in the future.

In view of the above, we will have to close, in the academic year 2023/2024, the Fraústo da Silva Residence (Almada).
