2. How to get to the University of Aveiro

The closest airport to Aveiro is the Francisco Sá Carneiro Airport in Porto. You can travel by Metro between the airport and the Campanhã railway station, which has the Alfa and Intercidade (intercity) train service to Lisbon; almost all trains stop at the Aveiro station.

By car

– Coming from the North on the A1 motorway you must exit for Aveiro via the A25. There are two exits from A25 to the city: Aveiro Norte and a few kilometres later, Aveiro. For those whose destination is the University of Aveiro the latter is the most advisable.

– Coming from South via the A1, you must exit in Aveiro-Sul / Águeda (exit 15) and follow the EN235 to the campus.

By train

Aveiro is situated on the main railway line of the country (Linha do Norte – Northern line). Information on train schedules is available on the CP- Comboios de Portugal website. The railway station is marked on the map. The route to the campus can be done using the following means: bus (green line); walk (it takes about 20 minutes to get there); by taxi (there is a taxi rank next to the station).
