While most of the university population lives in apartments and other housing options across Lisbon, Iscte also meets some of the accommodation needs of its visiting students and teachers with the Professor José Pinto Peixoto University Residence.

Located in the 17th-century Monastery of Santos-o-Novo (which is classified as a National Monument), the residence lies on a small hill by the Tagus River in Lisbon’s east end. The building benefits from a spectacular view of the sea, and is a short distance from the railway station of Santa Apolónia, the traditional neighbourhood of Alfama, and the new residential, commercial and service area of Parque das Nações. By metro, residents can also easily access Terreiro do Paço and downtown Lisbon.
