El campus

Life on campus

The University of Oviedo carries out its teaching and research activities in three cities in the central axis of Asturias: Oviedo, Gijón and Mieres, although it has a wide and varied range of cultural initiatives that extend throughout the autonomous community. The campuses have complementary services to facilitate coexistence and the development of university life, both for students, teaching staff, researchers and administration and services staff.

The University of Oviedo offers a comprehensive education full of experiences and possibilities. The Asturian academic institution pays special attention to complementary aspects to teaching and research, with special attention to solidarity values, equality, sustainability, and social action, with a stimulating cultural and sporting offer.

The aim is to turn our campuses into spaces of coexistence and socialisation, which go beyond the idea of places of passage. In addition to the usual services of the faculties and schools, there are also facilities dedicated to research, libraries, cafeterias, canteens, common areas, computer rooms and libraries.

The accommodation in halls of residence and residence halls invites students to live a full university experience, and the offer of renovated sports facilities facilitates the development of a healthy life.

All this is complemented by an extensive programme of cultural activities available to the whole community and an agenda of events open to the whole of society and free of charge. With the idea of bringing culture and science closer to society, the University of Oviedo has intensified its collaboration with some of the most prestigious public and private institutions in the region.

The professional attention provided by the Office of Attention to People with Specific Needs (ONEO) to each student is personalised and confidential and is adapted to the needs of each case.

The normalisation of students with any type of disability within university life also includes the organisation of different awareness and information programmes within the University. The scholarship programme to accompany students with disabilities is a clear example of cooperation.

The counselling and support work of the Office of Attention to People with Specific Needs (ONEO) is not only aimed at students, but also at teaching staff. The ONEO technicians have specific information and resources that can help teachers to give more and better attention to their students with special needs.
