What is student life like?

The modernization of the Regie campus was spread over a period of four years, during which major repairs were carried out in all the residences. In order for students to benefit from suitable study spaces, reading rooms were set up in all the halls. Green spaces were another priority of UPB management, which ensured the planting of over 1,500 trees and shrubs. For leisure, students have at their disposal some clubs where they can listen to music and dance. Students living on the two campuses have sports facilities in the following locations: The New Local sports hall – equipped with the latest and most modern sports accessories for team sports; The Natural Grass Football Field at Leu Campus; Soccer and basketball fields (synthetic surface) – next to the New Local sports hall; Fitness gym in R2 residence at Regie campus; Sports hall at Leu campus. Being a student at UPB means enjoying various opportunities. Adding them means adding enthusiasm, willingness, and personal development goals. You can turn them all into memorable experiences. Being a member of a student organization can provide you with the context you need to develop your potential and prepare yourself for a future career.
