University of Trás-os-Montes and Alto Douro

Quinta de Prados, Vila Real 5000-801 Vila Real


The University of Trás-os-Montes and Alto Douro is a public university located in the north-eastern city of Vila Real, Portugal. It became a public university in 1986, although its history also includes a heritage received from its predecessor, the Vila Real Polytechnic Institute, created in 1973.

This Institute took on a relevant role in the development of the region, and in September 1979, it was converted into the Trás-os-Montes and Alto Douro Higher Education Institute.

It was due to the intense activity in the fields of teaching and scientific and technological research that, less than ten years later, the government granted its status as a qualified University.
