UFSC Araranguá Campus research laboratories have been developing continuously due to the funding of research projects by different state and national funding agencies. The purchase of equipment and consumables has contributed to improve the conditions of the research laboratories.

The PPGCR currently has at its disposal the following research laboratories, which are exclusive for graduate studies: LACOR – Cardiorespiratory Physiotherapy Laboratory, LARAL – Evaluation and Rehabilitation of the Locomotor System Laboratory, LERER – Aging, Resources and Rheumatology Laboratory, LANEP – Neurology and Pediatrics Laboratory, LABOX – Bioenergetics and Oxidative Stress Laboratory and BIOMEC – Biomechanics Laboratory. These laboratories are compatible with the activities developed by graduate students.

The Araranguá Campus hosts 4 of these laboratories – LACOR, LARAL, NERER and LANEP. All these laboratories are multi-user and give  support to the development of different course works and research activities. In addition to these research laboratories, the campus currently has 6 teaching laboratories for the exclusive use of undergraduate students: Microscopy/Chemistry Laboratory, Morphophysiology Laboratory, Physical Therapy in Neurology and Pediatrics Laboratory, Mechanotherapy and Functional Evaluation Laboratory, Therapeutic Resources Laboratory and Cardiorespiratory Physiotherapy Laboratory. In its turn, the   Florianópolis Campus hosts 2 of the laboratories for graduate students, namely LABOX and BIOMEC.

The computerized UFSC University Library System is composed of the Central Library (with approximately 800 thousand volumes) and 10 Branch Libraries, including the Araranguá Campus Library (BSAra). Each of these libraries is specialized in the area of ​​study and research of the academic school or campus in which they are located.

The BSAra is situated on the ground floor of UFSC Araranguá Campus Building A, located at Governador Jorge Lacerda Highway, 3201, Jardim das Avenidas, Araranguá/SC. Its team is comprised of   librarians and library assistants and its opening hours are: Monday to Friday, from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. and from 1 p.m. to 8 p.m. The BSAra collection is focused on the Araranguá Campus teaching areas and consists of reference works, books, e-books, journals and multimedia resources. The BSAra, as well as the other UFSC libraries, uses the Pergamum Library Management System, developed by the Pontifícia Universidade Católica do Paraná, as its web platform. It includes the main functions of a library, operating in an integrated way in order to facilitate the daily routines of the institution. Through its search interface, the user can look for and borrow materials online, as well as make loan renewals and control their loans and fines.

UFSC Central Library is located on the Florianópolis Campus, offering the following services to students and faculty members: collection access and reading room (inclusive on weekends); alert services (distribution of copies of journal indexes, as requested by departments); document delivery services (search for articles and other material online); loans (including of journals for faculty and graduate students); study booths; guided visits; photocopying service; booking of basic course materials, among others.

Among the UFSC branch libraries which are also at the disposal of PPGCR, we mention the Libraries of the School of Health Sciences, School of Education and  School of  Philosophy and Human Sciences. They allow access to  specific and more general collections of each PPGCR concentration area, especially to meet the needs of the graduate courses carried out in the respective academic schools.
