The motto of this university is: In libertatem vocati (From Galatians 5:13, RSV: “Called to freedom").  UCAM has a rich and unique environment both cultural and historical. The main campus is on the XVII century Jerónimos Monastery.

UCAM is a Catholic institution in dialogue with the modern world for the purposes of evangelization and the improvement of human society as a whole. This spirit is made visible in personalized lectures with a reduced number of students and personal tutors for each student. UCAM is a proponent of Christian values throughout all subjects, volunteership, meetings, congress and seminars.

UCAM is strongly linked with the working world through study plans adapted to market exigencies, obligatory internships in institutions and enterprises in every program and research programs in collaboration with big enterprises. At the same time UCAM’s students have at their disposal computers and scientific-professional laboratories apart from a modern on-line learning system.
