University Rovira i Virgili was created in 1991 from the existing university centres of Camp de Tarragona and Terres de l'Ebre. The university adopts the name of the illustrious writer, historian and politician Antoni Rovira i Virgili, who served as president of the Parliament of Catalonia. The School of Architecture is part of a group of twelve universities centres, where more than forty disciplines are taught in the areas of health sciences, social sciences, humanities, technology, experimental sciences and architecture. According to data from the 2010-2011 academic report, our university has a staff of 1,559 teachers and 640 persons in the administration and services. Students enrolled exceed 14,000 in different diplomas, degrees, doctorates and continuing education.

The creation of the School of Architecture at the URV - School of Architecture of Reus, in 2005-2006 opened the possibility to pursue the studies in architecture from different paths of access to students from south of Catalonia. The school of Architecture of Reus has an adjusted size for an estimated 60 new students per year, in addition to students transferring from architecture or other studies, with proper validation of courses. This determines a very good student / professor ratio, which permits the professors to have direct knowledge of the students and perform a personalized tutoring. This permits giving rise to collaborations, participating in seminars and in more advanced courses, cooperating in research groups.
