The UAB is spread across a large campus in Bellaterra (Cerdanyola del Vallès).

The main Bellaterra campus is home to the Selected Courses. It is located in a very beautiful natural setting with green, open spaces and woods. It is situated at the nerve centre of one of the main hubs of industrial and technological development of Mediterranean Europe, and excellently connected to Barcelona by road and public transport.

It is one of the few purpose-built Spanish universities where the different academic, cultural and social activities happen in one place. In addition to studying, teaching and carrying out research, here people can also live on campus in the Vila Universitària halls of residence, with more than 2,000 accommodation places.

Apart from the centres for teaching and research, the UAB campus provides all kinds of additional services, including libraries, a language-learning centre, own cultural activities, sports facilities, restaurants and bars, hotel, a health centre, bookshops and various other shops, making the campus a genuine community where studying takes place in an atmosphere of friendship and solidarity between students and teachers from around the world.

International Support Service is the place where international students and lecturers can find all the information and support they may need, located in the heart of the UAB Bellaterra campus.
