About US

Unicamp broke with the Brazilian tradition of creating a university by simply accumulating courses and units. Instead, it was created based on an idea that included all of its present structure. This explains why, even before it was established, Unicamp had already attracted more than 200 foreign academics in a wide range of areas and about 180 academics from the best Brazilian universities. Unicamp has three campuses - in Campinas, Piracicaba and Limeira - which are home to 22 teaching and research centers. It also has a vast hospital complex (two large hospitals in Campinas, and one in each of the neighboring towns of Sumaré and Hortolândia); 23 interdisciplinary centers; two technical high schools; and a series of support units within a universe of about 50 thousand people in which thousands of research projects are carried out.
