Vigo campus

The Vigo campus is distant but at the same time near the city centre. It is a reference in contemporary architecture and its many buildings are comprised of the works of well known architects such as Enric Miralles, Alberto Noguerol & Pilar Díez, César Portela and Gabriel Santos Zas. In addition to the ten or more buildings that house the several schools and faculties catering to the academic offer on this modern architectural campus, which is fully integrated in its natural surroundings, one can find the Vice-Chancellor's office building, the Central Services, the Central Library, the Shopping Centre and Sports installations, such as the swimming-pool, the gymnasium and the athletics track. The university furthermore has teaching premises in the centre of Vigo, such as the University College of Business Studies and the University College of Technical Industrial Engineering

Libraries

The University Library is physically present on all three campuses via a central library and other smaller library rooms distributed over the many schools and faculties that make up the University. Services include onsite consultation, home loans, bibliographic information, electronic resources and inter-library loans, besides also providing training to its users.
In order to facilitate university teachers, students and staff access to all resources, library opening hours coincide with those of faculties and schools, except during the exam period when libraries stay open though part of the night and early morning and at weekends.

In January 2007 the University Library received the ISO:9000 Quality Certification which places it at the forefront of Spanish Universities.

Sports

Every year, more than 10,000 persons participate in the many activities organised by the Sports Services Department which provides the University community, and society in general, with the possibility of regularly practicing sports and leisure activities. Sports clubs help one to get initiated in the several sporting activities offered.

University leagues and championships, inter-centre and inter-campus tournaments, and the Spanish Championships comprise most of the competitions in the several sports disciplines held at the facilities on the three campuses, where one can find multipurpose pavilions, outdoor tennis courts, artificial turf football fields, athletics tracks, jogging tracks, and gymnasiums, amongst other facilities.

Culture

The University Extension Service organises an extensive cultural program structured quarterly and includes theatre, concerts and street shows. It also organises other cycles, such as Universium the submarine cinema week, courses and workshops dealing with subjects that are interesting to student training.
This Service also organises prizes for artistic creation - an annual event directed towards disciplines such as audiovisual creation, photography, painting and music rough cuts.
