The main aim of the University of Lleida is the education of its students. We provide high standards of teaching with quality services throughout the university community that reach society beyond the campus gates. Students make up most of the UdL community, and our objective is to ensure that they enjoy the teaching and learning processes involved. They will thus be able to develop both at a professional and personal level by following other educational, cultural or leisure activities, and by participating in the UdL to keep it a lively, ever-improving educational institution.

Within the academic environment, the practical training session programme, the Employment Service (Borsa de Treball) and our Psychological Care Service form a major part of our services. The UdL has libraries on each of its campuses, which offer lending services, inter-library document loans, reprography services, distance resources through the use of the virtual library and study rooms. The UdL is an enthusiastic promoter of new technological innovations; all students are provided with a personal e-mail address and are able to access our virtual campus. They can access these facilities through our computer rooms and via the Wi-Fi technology available throughout our campuses, with free access for all members of the university community. Our Cultural Services organise cultural activities, and students who enjoy sport can become members of the clubs run through the Sports Service, which provides free access to competition sports and recreational activities. Our International Relations Office (ORI) and Academic Mobility Programme can facilitate transfers to other universities, not only in Catalonia and Spain, but also throughout Europe and America.
