The Vice-President’s Office for International and Institutional Relations of the University of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria has organised a wide-ranging programme of academic and leisure activities, as well as an official welcome act, coinciding with their arrival in Las Palmas. The welcome act was attended by the President of the ULPGC, José Regidor García and the Mayor of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, Jerónimo Saavedra Acevedo, who welcomed the students and handed out the second edition of the Guide to City-University Resources to the exchange students. This guide has been jointly edited by the ULPGC and the City Council of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria and it offers students information about the addresses of Consulates, the University in general, university residences, the network of municipal libraries, the main cultural events held in the city and the bus routes operated by Guaguas Municipales to and from the various university campuses.
