Senhora da Hora is a modern residential neighbourhood in Porto. This cosy and quiet neighbourhood is close to one of the biggest shopping centres in Porto. Norteshopping has a supermarket, restaurants and international clothing stores. The area has Carriçal, a green ark where you can go for a stroll or to jog. On the warmer days, go for a swim in the local public pool. With many cafes and stores, there is nothing you can’t find in here. The area has attracted many students due to its proximity from the Porto Business School. It is connected to the city metro grid, from here you can reach the city centre in 15 minutes.
Students and middle-class families live in the neighbourhood.

Porto is a city with character. Studying in Porto is all about living and loving that work-hard, party-hard spirit. From the welcoming weeks (so-called Praxe) to celebrating graduation at the Queima das Fitas, student traditions embrace this.
Eat the best sandwich in the world - the Francesinha - try the famous local Port wine, and enjoy the student spots such as Ribeira and Piolho with your friends, or just meeting new people.
