The Polytechnic Institute of Cávado and Ave (IPCA) does not have a University Residence with enough capacity to accommodate mobility students. Therefore, the International Relations Office (GRI) of IPCA compiles Private Accommodation offers available in Barcelos, thus creating a database so that students can choose their accommodation according to their preferences.

If students expect something different, it is important to highlight that the accommodation supply is scarce in Barcelos. Despite this constraint, we would like to provide some alternative solutions such as temporary housing, until definitive private accommodation can be found on site.
