REARI Institution

Universidade Federal Fluminense

The Universidade Federal Fluminense was created in 1960, because of the incorporation of the Federal Schools of Pharmacy, Dentistry, and Law (1912), Medicine (1926), and Veterinary Medicine (1936). UFF’s mission is to produce, disseminate and apply knowledge and culture in a critical and socially referenced manner. The institution has academic units in Niterói and in eight municipalities in the countryside of the State of RJ – Angra dos Reis, Campos dos Goytacazes, Macaé, Nova Friburgo, Petrópolis, Rio das Ostras, Santo Antônio de Pádua, and Volta Redonda. In addition to on-campus teaching, UFF offers distance education in 28 cities, including its headquarters in Niterói.

UFF also has 29 libraries, 580 laboratories, 21 auditoriums, the Hospital Universitário Antônio Pedro (HUAP), a University Pharmacy, a Veterinary Hospital, a Day Care Center, and an elementary and a high school institution. We also have an experimental center in Iguaba Grande, a School Farm in Cachoeiras de Macacu, and an Advanced Unit in Oriximiná, in Pará. In addition to a publisher and 4 bookstores, in the cultural area UFF has an Arts Center, composed of a cinema, a theater, an art gallery, and a photography space. In music, we have an orchestra, an old music ensemble, a choir, and a string quartet.
