How to Find Us

Directions and Maps in a single file


  • From the Airport to Plaça Catalunya:

Exit the terminal and wait for the Aerobus at the bus stop on the same side of the road. There is one every 5-15 minutes depending on the time of the day. Tickets can be bought on board or at vending machines. A one-way ticket is about 4 €. Get off at the very last stop: Plaça Catalunya. The ride takes about 30 min. From the bus stop, cross the square along the diagonal to reach the Rambla and the entrance to the Ferrocarrils de la Generalitat de Catalunya (FGC).

  • From Plaça Catalunya to UAB Campus and ICN:

Plaça Catalunya is Barcelona’s city center, the place you are most likely to cross if you take public transportation to go anywhere. At the square corner close to the Rambla and Café Zurich, take the stairs and follow the FGC sign. FGC is like a metro, but not the same as the real Metro (M sign). Buy a 2 zones ticket and board any train to either Sabadell (S2 line) or Universitat Autonoma (S55 line). Get off at Universitat Autonoma (25 min. ride).

  • TAXI

Ask for Universitat Autonoma; show a map of the campus (We are situated in building 14) to the taxi driver so that he/she will know where to go after the motorway exit to the campus. If you start from the airport, ask to go via la autopista A siete (A7). It takes about 30 min. with normal traffic conditions and the cost is around 40 Euros.
