In face of the geographic distribution of its premises within the city of Porto and to its decentralized model of governance,U.Porto developed a strategy to reinforce cohesion, the sharing of resources and services. Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) plays a major role on this strategy. The need to create new and innovative places were students andfaculty can socialize and engage in studying activities, promoting the interdisciplinary, exchange of knowledge and experience is one of the successful aspect of the strategy.

The contribution of the e-learning café of U.Porto and the successful implementation of its program, focused on diversepedagogical and cultural activities, to the acquisition of students’ attitudes and skills essential to handle professionalrelationships and to facilitate learning, personal development and entrepreneurship, is now of main importance for manyhigher education students.

We intend to present the successes of the outcomes of student’s involvement to solve a specific problem, having in mind theoffer of a better service to the users of the e-learning café and facilitate the work of the students’ team that work at thespace.
