In order to strengthen the integration of UMinho in the city of Guimarães, Campurbis project (between 2006 and 2012) was developed by the Municipality and the University. The intervention and rehabilitation of old factories allowed the creation of a new university space - Campus de Couros - which, given its location in the middle of the urban network, highlights the concepts of virtual campus and university without walls. Besides the Product Design degrees, Campus de Couros also accommodate the Advanced Postgraduate Training Centre, a specialized library and a bar.

In addition, new facilities were inaugurated in February 2022 in the Garagem Avenida, where the Degree in Visual Arts is located.
