You will find the Airport train station at the bottom of the map (line R2 Nord is in light green). You can access the Airport train station by following the RODALIES signs , walking through a white and red elevated brigde that you'll see as soon as you walk out the terminal (there is only one bridge, and there are signs indicating the train). Trains depart every 30 minutes from 5:42am to 11:38pm. You must get off at PASSEIG DE GRÀCIA, which is the 4th stop. It takes 25 minutes from the Airport to PASSEIG DE GRÀCIA, (Price: 4.60 EUR).

Metro metro

There are metro stations at the two airport terminals

Take L9 line L9Sud orange line get off at TORRASSA transfer station, take L1 line L1 red line to FONDO and get off at UNIVERSITAT. (Price: 5,15 EUR).


By taxi. From the airport to Pl. Catalunya should take around 20-30 minutes and expect to pay around 30 EUR, depending on traffic. It is usually a good idea to ask for a receipt. There will also be an additional surcharge charge for each bag you're carrying

Coming by train

If you arrive to Barcelona by train then you will probably arrive at either Estació de Sants or Estació de França. From Sants you can take a local train or a metro to Pl. Catalunya, and continue as above. From França station you should take a metro to Pl. Catalunya from the nearby Barceloneta stop or simply walk up La Rambla to Pl. Catalunya (1.5 kilometres).

Coming by car

The University is located in the center of town. Coming from the north, merge into highway C33 from A7 towards Barcelona. After a while, follow signs to "Rondes" and, in particular, to "Ronda Litoral". This is (half of) a belt that surrounds the city bordering the see. You must take exit 28 ("Glòries - Gran Via") which will take you into the city. Once you find the first light, you are already in "Gran Via", the street where the University is. But this is a one way street (and not your way). So, make a right turn and immediately a left, to take the parallel street "Diputació". Follow this street for a good while until you find "Balmes". Make a left there and you will see the university building on your right at the end of the block.
