UFSM campus

The city campus of UFSM provides students with countless opportunities for work and recreation — from sitting in a coffee shop with a laptop to internships at large companies. Santa Maria has a well developed entertainment infrastructure, but the rhythm of the big city can be distracting for some students. The university has a functioning library. In addition to educational materials in various scientific areas, it contains a collection of classical and contemporary literature. UFSM regularly accepts students for international exchange programs, providing both local and international students with the opportunity to come into contact with different cultures and gain unique experience.
