Students, students, and more students. Paranhos is the place to be if you want to be near your colleagues. Despite being full of students, it's still a calm place.
Paranhos is the centre stage for Porto's entrepreneurial events. Home to UPTEC and the Porto Design Factory, there are all sorts of events and training sessions for you to attend.
When in Paranhos, you must drop into UPTEC. Here, you can meet some of the most inspiring startups in Portugal in action. Meet new and creative people, and beat them at table tennis.
If you are eager to learn about technology and how to create your own startup, Paranhos is the place to be. It's not the best place for going out for a drink, but you'll learn some valuable skills.
At Uniplaces we make the process of booking an apartment as easy as possible for both tenant and landlord.
That's why we have our own team of professional photographers that verify our properties and pick our landlords carefully in order to save time on viewings: we think it’s old-fashioned and time-consuming.
You can look at forty different apartments on our platform in the same amount of time that it takes to see a room.
The pictures you see here haven’t been photoshopped, so they’ll be really accurate.
If you’ve still got any doubts, we’ll keep the money that you transfer us until 24h after your move-in date.
If something’s not exactly what you saw online, we’ll help you move somewhere else and return your money.
We can only give you the contact details of your landlord after your booking is accepted. But we can guarantee that Uniplaces chooses the landlords it works with very carefully.
Besides, we’ve had students whose favourite part was living with a local!
Landlords and host families can be great city guides, help you out with translations and even become your friends.
As soon as your booking is accepted, you're given the landlord’s contact details. Then, you can discuss all details directly with them, such as when you’ll be moving-in.
Students move in and out at different times, so your flatmates might change during your stay.
It’s a great opportunity to make new friends!
We personally speak to students who we place in Uniplaces apartments and are sure we will find the right place for you as well!
At the bottom of the property page, you have a calendar where you can see the availability of that room/apartment, according to the landlord.
But if you’re still unsure about that we’re happy to help!
Tell us your move-in and move-out dates and we will double check if the place is available for you!
There are two different types of deposits: the Holding and Security deposits.
By clicking on “Deposit” at the bottom of the offer page you will get more information about each type of deposit.
In general, the deposit is paid to cover for any potential damages that may occur during your period of stay or will be used as rent compensation in case you leave earlier than originally booked.
If no damages occur, and you leave on the agreed move-out date, your deposit should be refunded by the landlord in a way you both agree on.
