Universidade de Lisboa integrates Schools, research units and other units, structures and services.
Schools - designated as Faculties or Institutes - are educational and research units with self-governing bodies.
Research units may, as regulated in the Statutes, have self-governing bodies. The Autonomous Services are also considered units.
Within the Universidade de Lisboa there is also the Rectory, the Colleges and the Specialized Units. The units, structures and services are all coordinated in a way that they comply with the University guidelines and those of their governing bodies.
