Safety and health


Committed to everyone who is part of the university community, and following the guidelines established by the World Health Organisation, UIC Barcelona works to offer a safe environment and promote a healthy lifestyle.

UIC Barcelona joined the Spanish Network of Healthy Universities (REUS) in 2013. This is a group of institutions committed to the promotion of health in the university environment. REUS was established in 2008 to strengthen the role of universities as promoters of the health and well-being of their students, staff and society as a whole.

Universities from all over Spain, the Conference of Rectors of Spanish Universities (CRUE); the Ministry of Health, Social Services and Equality; the Ministry of Education, Culture and Sport and some regional structures of Public Health are currently participating.

Health Promotion

With the desire to make known and promote a healthy lifestyle among students, teachers and service staff, UIC Barcelona has a specialised team that every year organises various activities and initiatives focused on physical activity, quitting smoking and acquiring healthy habits.
