Londrina State University

History

UEL's campus is located in a pleasant green area covering 235 hectares, and it employs 1.694 faculty (91% hold MA or PhD titles) and 3,841 staff (25% with graduate qualification) to aid in accomplishing its mission.

In 1971, the existing separate colleges of Letters and Sciences, Law, and Dentistry were merged to create UEL: a state funded, free of charge university, located in Londrina (population 540,000), a medium-sized city in the northern
region of Paraná state located in the south of Brazil.

In no time UEL became the preferred university among students not only from Paraná, but also from neighboring states. Every year UEL attracts more and more students from many parts of the country. Thanks to UEL's highly favorable academic credentials, the university's influence goes beyond the close borders of our state.
