Lyrics studies born in 1971 in the General Study of Lleida as delegation, the first of the Autonomous University of Barcelona (UAB) and then at the University of Barcelona (UB). A few years earlier (1968), with legal studies, Lleida had recovered a condition of campus, whose origins date back to the late thirteenth century. With the approval of the University of Lleida by the Catalan Parliament, on December 12, 1991, created the Faculty of current Arts.

The library is the common laboratory of all the students of the Faculty of Arts. It is where students and professors can carry out the necessary bibliographical investigation that study and research imply.

They will also be offered information about the degrees that they are about to start, as well as other issues such as the university ID card and accommodation. Other essential reception activities are the orientative sessions for new students, which are offered by the Library and Documentation Service. 

In September, all schools hold a welcoming session, which is also attended by the rector of the UdL and the dean or school director. For information about dates, timetables and documentation, please visit:

The Language Service also gives students the opportunity to learn or perfect their Catalan through the Language Self-learning Centre (CAL), with a flexible schedule and at their own individual paces. Conversation groups are also run through this study scheme. Other official language certificates may be recognised as free-elective credits in accordance with a UdL-approved table of equivalences.

Volunteering and language exchange: The Language Service coordinates the Language Volunteers Service, which is made up of members of the university community who take part in activities relating to the promotion of the use of Catalan at the UdL and the reception of non-Catalan speaking students. The idea is to facilitate their integration into the cultural and linguistic environment of Catalonia.
