Your future now.
Member of the European University Colleges Association, Montes Claros is an hall of residence that aims to be more than an accommodation solution. We are a university education center in a residential context, that tries to help male university students in Lisbon to develop their talents to the full.
Montes Claros is an authentic community of knowledge, where students with different backgrounds and from different academic fields study and live together, taking roots in the tradition of University Colleges, whose beginning merges with the beginning of University itself in the XIII century.
We value the investment that both society and our families provide, in order to give us the best living and studying conditions and, for this reason, we all want to make the most out of our capacities and possibilities.
We believe that being a university student bears a social responsibility, which challenges us to take care of our own growth, not only in academic matters, but also in the realms of culture and character.
We want to live in a place where, like in a family, trust and loyalty shape long-term relationships, seeking a friendly, respectful, and warm exchange between people.
Trying to ensure that all residents and non-residents have a culture of high professional standards in a family environment, our facilities emphasize the importance of common areas, where interpersonal contact takes place and academic achievement is boosted.
