THE first phase of the Polo da Ajuda university residence project, which will provide 180 beds for students beginning this school year, was inaugurated this week. The building is located next to the university canteen, close to most of the school’s colleges. Work on the project’s second phase is expected to begin shortly, adding another 120 beds to the new residence.
The Portuguese government, concerned that rising property prices and rents are dissuading potential students from attending university, is looking to greatly expand the supply of student housing.
