United Lisbon Education Hub



United Lisbon International School

A campus for innovation

Edu Hub Lisbon is planned as a collaborative campus for the future of education in the city of Lisbon. It aims to foster a real-world approach to lifelong learning, driven by digital transformation and innovative partnerships.

Edu Hub Lisbon’s 28,400 sqm development is anchored by a KS1-12 international school: United Lisbon International School. Opening its doors in 2020, with a truly global vision, United Lisbon has over 35 nationalities represented. It is an official International Baccalaureate World School, and a flagship school in the Microsoft Showcase School’s network.

All occupiers at Edu Hub will enjoy a range of comprehensive onsite facilities: extensive indoor and outdoor sports areas; covered event spaces; a day-to-evening café; and a large underground car park with charging points for electric vehicles.

This first-of-its-kind campus community for Portugal will come to life within revitalized industrial buildings with new spaces for learning, working, and living. Edu Hub Lisbon partners with like-minded businesses that share the same objectives and are dedicated to positive growth, collaboration, and lifelong learning.

Through Chitra’s work with a government-led task force for foreign direct investment, they recognised the need for a quality international school within central Lisbon—a niche they were determined to fill. Identifying an opportunity to breathe new life into a former educational facility still with its original art deco façade in Park of Nations, they transformed it into United Lisbon International School which opened its doors in September 2020.

Through extensive research selecting the right global industry partners, as well as having a large family of their own, they were able to apply their first-hand knowledge of the importance of education for international families relocating to a major capital city like Lisbon.

The school’s extensive state-of-the-art offering and facilities were completed and opened for operations in September 2020. It is the start of the transformative community that is Edu Hub Lisbon.
