“It is an unprecedented initiative that we signed with the University, offering housing so that the student can dedicate himself to his studies in an integral way. In this way, he is able to perform better and prepare better for the job market, in addition to having the opportunity to meet people from other states and other countries. It is a way of giving back to society part of what we have accomplished ”, explained Uliving co-founder and CEO, Juliano Faria Antunes.
For the superintendent of Social Assistance at USP, Gerson Yukio Tomanari, “this is one of the actions that shows the enormous capillarity of the program Come to USP !.
