PUC-Rio is located at Rua Marquês de São Vicente, 225 in Gávea, in the South zone of Rio de Janeiro city.

It has two main accesses:

  • Rua Padre Leonel França – Main Entrance for cars and pedestrians (#8 on the map)
  • Rua Marquês de São Vicente, 225 – Entrance for pedestrians only (#9 on the map)

*** We recommend the #8 entrance as it is closest to the registration desk and it is easier to reach.***

When arriving at PUC, please go to the RE Secretariat located in the Cardeal Leme Building (#2 on the map).
