The campus of the University of Trás-os-Montes and Alto Douro, where the UTAD Veterinary Hospital is located, is sited on the southern boundary of the city of Vila Real.
It is served by the integrated public transport system of Vila Real (Urbanos), and the A24 and A4 motorways ensure the connection to the main cities in the north and centre of the country.
As you enter the UTAD main gate, the Veterinary Hospital is on your right. To get there, go straight ahead, then around the lake, turn right at the first fork and then immediately right again. The Hospital is the building on your right hand side. The red line in the picture shows the way to the Veterinary Hospital, and the blue line the way to leave the UTAD campus from the Hospital.
If you need to access the HVUTAD during emergency hours, while access to the campus is restricted (business days from 11pm to 7.30am, Saturdays from 8pm to midnight, and all day Sundays) and the gates are closed for this reason, all you have to do is identify yourself to the security guard at the main gate and inform him that you wish to go to the Veterinary Hospital.
