The quality of life at the University of Minho is considered by students, professors and external organisations/visitors alike as very good. This is due to several factors, not always of a material nature.
There is a great concern with welcoming and integrating new students as best as possible, and older students are aware of this. There is also a series of initiatives, such as visits, welcome sessions and others, meant to facilitate the initiation of students in academic life. One of the goals is to make the professor-student relationship as close and open as possible, as that decisively improves the learning process.
In this context, it is important to point out the various cultural, associative and sports activities developed by students through their students' groups, tunas [musical group of university students], folk music, poetry and fado, among many others
