Summary: This research is about the sonorities of the campus parties at Goiabeiras, in the Federal University of Espírito Santo, emphasizing the role of music performed alive ou by electromechanical or digital means in the reconfiguration of an usual institutional and formal space into another, an ephemeral affectioned symbolic meaningful place. A two-day observation of a party on March, 2020 allied to the ambient sound recordings and interviews are the components of the reflections about this kind of practice and how it is related to the urban public space, taking into account the networking of academic community
and their creative appropriation of the institutional space, transforming it in a social environment that narrows the proximity among graduates, Professors, public servers and the external audience. Specific places in the campus gain a peculiar meaning in Vitoria, in the period from 2001 to 2020, supporting the local musical scene that goes from success to failures and faces difficulties to reach and to sustain recognition. This local musical effervescence finds its space and support for expression on the university campus, using its infrastructure like bathrooms, water fountains, electricity, shelter from the rain, murals, universitary radio station, Cinema and also a regular audience which is open to novelty and avid to create connections between Ufes and the city of Vitória triggered by artistic and cultural circuits. However the campus parties were criticized by some members of the academic community and the public opinion, pointing to a series of inconveniences related to the parties. This
situation resulted in disputes among those who were in favor of the continuity of the parties and those that condemned them. For a better understanding of the odd configuration of the public space, surrounded by disputes and polemic, this research is based on the definition of acoustic territories, sonic
campaigns and auditory regimes as conceptualized by J. Martin Daughtry (2015) from a reformulation of the soundscape concept by R. Murray Schafer (2001). The analysis indicates that the Goiabeiras Campus remains an important space for artistic and cultural expression even considering the controversies and incidents that occurred in the past and the depreciation by the local Press. This studied case shows also that campus parties are
potentially spaces to express social discontent. Keywords: university parties, university campus, Soundspaces, spaces of sociability, sonorities.
