Its main university campus is currently located at Av. Universitária, 23, Parque das Palmeiras, in Paripiranga (BA). However, in the beginning, it was held at the headquarters of Colégio AGES, located at Rua dos Estudante, 88, in the city center. However, on September 20, 2002, after months of work, the Faculty Campus was inaugurated, located in Parque das Palmeiras - historic space, of an area, for a long time, cultivated by traditional families who planted coffee in that location . This acquisition and the implantation of the new campus, with spacious and comfortable facilities, is a complementary element of the education that we want to give to the students of the Institution. They can thus study in a wide, tranquil environment and very close to the city center.
