Alberto Fernández Gutiérrez, as Vice-Chancellor. The current Vice-Chancellor is D .Pedro Roque Molina García, elected by the university community in the elections that took place on Monday 26 March 2007, taking over from D.

Access

The University of Almeria has roads which connect it with the city and province.

By road

It is possible to come via the coast, using the AL-3202 road. This road is mainly used by those coming from south of the capital. There is also an access road to the north from the AL-3200. This connects with the AL-12 motorway, which provides quick access from the north of the capital and the rest of the metropolitan area. A number of students prefer to cross the Andarax River to avoid congestion. The AL-3200 is also used from the East, but this is rare given the low population density in that area. From early on parking spaces are scarce, so visitors often park several hundred yards away.

By Public Transport

Bus routes 11, 12, and 18 of the local bus service come to UAL, and connect it with the capital via the bus station, providing access to all students in the province. The service is busy during peak hours, so for this reason it is common to see additional buses on routes 13 and 14, exclusively for student use. The introduction of a tram is being considered, though government agencies do not deem it worthwhile.

Polyphonic Choir

The Polyphonic Choir of the University of Almeria is a mixed polyphonic chamber choir, mainly composed of university students, created in the University of Almeria (Almeria, Andalucía, Spain). The University Choir was founded as a polyphonic choir in 1994. Its director since then has been José Luis Martínez who was previously director of Almeria’sVirgen del Mar Choir. Its main objective is the study, interpretation, and diffusion of polyphonic choral music of all eras and styles. It performs at all official functions of the university, as well as at various choral meetings, and participates in the music outreach programmes of Almeria City Council, Almeria Province Council, and the Ministry of Culture of Andalucia. It has performed more than 150 recitals throughout Spain, and its repertoire is close to 200 works. It has recorded several television shows, and a CD.
