Abstract: The reinforced concrete structures are present in most constructions around the world and can be defined as a composite material of concrete reinforced with steel bars. Those structures may exhibit pathologies during the construction stage or after, due to several types of failures, whether is in the project, execution or maintenance. The Universidade Federal do Pará, has great influence over Brazil, being considered the biggest university in the north of the country. Despite its relevance, the university campus presents numerous problems in their building structures. The purpose of this paper is to identify the pathologies in the older and most recent reinforced concrete buildings existing at the Cidade Universitária Prof. José da Silveira Netto, Guamá campus, located in Belém, state’s capital, enabling the evaluation of corrective maintenance needs of the most deteriorated constructions. To support the case study, it was performed a visual analysis with photographic register, allied to theoretical study regarding the subject, enabling the identification of possible causes of the alterations. The results show pathologies from many fields, from structure design until foundation of the buildings. The reduction in the occurrence of those manifestations would be possible, with better supervision during the construction process and preventive maintenance, whose lack of were the main cause of the identified pathologies.
