Welcome to the University of León, created in 1979, although many years before there were already university degrees such as Veterinary Medicine that began in 1852. At this time 40 university degrees are taught, which cover a wide spectrum of topics, as well as numerous Master's degrees, both research and professional, and doctoral studies. These studies are offered at the León and Ponferrada Campuses, both well located and with excellent facilities, which together with the high capacity of our teaching staff, researchers and administration and services staff, make our institution an ideal place to be trained as well-prepared, competent and committed professionals with society. At the University of León we are firmly committed to quality and educational innovation and our teachings are adapted to the new demands of society.
Our university also offers a wide range of sports, cultural and social activities that are enjoyed by a large number of users. There are also numerous associations that facilitate the integration of students in the university community.
The cities of León and Ponferrada are historical cities but at the same time current and endowed with the most modern services and have a wide university population. All those who have visited them enthusiastically speak of their experience and those who have lived in them agree that day-to-day life is comfortable and pleasant. Both institutions and society are proud of the University of León and collaborate closely with us in multiple projects and initiatives. In turn, our university community actively participates in local life.
In short, the University of León is a public university committed to its environment, which responds to social needs and transfers the knowledge it generates to the different social agents. We make our resources available to society and collaborate closely with institutions, entities and companies. It is a university with a vocation for service that we invite you to know
