Casa Convalescència is located within the Hospital de la Santa Creu i Sant Pau grounds and constitutes one of the later works of Catalan Modernism. Located in a very quiet, central part of Barcelona, it offers everything university students may need. The complex was declared a Historic Artistic Monument in 1978 and later named part of UNESCO’s Cultural Heritage for Humanity in 1997.

Casa Convalescència offers fully-equipped facilities with the information and communications technology needed for teaching and studying, together with a library and restaurant-cafeteria.

The Eixample is the name of the Modernist neighbourhood of central Barcelona extending from both sides of Plaça Catalunya. Its famous grid pattern was designed in 1860 to accommodate the growth of the old city, and this area is now a business, retail and residential hub. One of the principal avenues of the Eixample is Passeig de Gràcia and the UAB Eixample campus is conveniently situated only a few meters away.

The building was renovated completely in 2009 and it has all the necessary facilities for teaching such as wireless Internet access, air conditioning, adapted facilities for people with special needs and free printing service. There is an immense variety of restaurants, cafes and terraces in this area to have a break between lessons and take in the beautiful Modernist facades decorated with stone and iron.
