These basic rules aim to ensure the visit in the garden is always respectful with the integrity and wellbeing of the living beings in this place. Also, they regulate the process of authorization for the use and development of specific activities. The rules have been developed by the Commission for Integral Management of the Ferran Soldevila Garden of the Historical Building of the UB, created under the rector’s resolution last February.

Currently, the Ferran Soldevila garden has teaching, research, university agora, leisure, health, heritage and use purposes for university activities, which should be compatible among them and with those of general use.
