The UFG has its headquarters at Samambaia Campus, in Goiânia, the capital of the State of Goiás. The capital is strategically located in Brazil's Midwest, approximately 126 miles (200 kilometers) from Brasília, Brazil’s capital.
The wide range of undergraduate (145) and graduate (69 Master's + 38 Doctorate) programs, associated with their quality, led the UFG to consolidate itself as a respected research institution and a large producer of scientific knowledge.
Its extension and culture projects are incorporated with teaching and research, establishing a partnership between Academia and society.
