There’s more to life at IE University…
Life at IE University is more than an academic experience. Networking, sports and a variety of extracurricular activities make up an important part of student life. As a global university, these activities do not just happen on the campus and in the city of Segovia, but throughout Spain and abroad.
IE University offers its students a wide range of sport activities both on and off campus. Numerous sports facilities and clubs in Segovia have agreements with IE University and provide our students with an array of activities and classes to choose from.
There are free, ongoing sporting activities which are open to all students and take place throughout the year in local facilities. Our sporting activities are scheduled to fit with the academic timetable, allowing everyone to participate.
Segovia’s geographic location is perfect for adventure sports such as hiking, mountain climbing, skiing, canoeing, horse-riding, golf and archery. There are several ski resorts nearby in Navacerrada, Valdesquí and La Pinilla open throughout the winter and spring.

Arts & Culture
Segovia boasts some of the finest historical and cultural sites and monuments in the country. Among the many impressive monuments in Segovia, the most visited are:
It is one of the best-preserved Roman monuments in the Iberian Peninsula, built in the 1st Century to carry water over a distance of 18 kilometers to Segovia. It is constructed without a single drop of mortar and stretches 728 meters with 163 arches.
Don't miss Segovia's gothic cathedral, a product of 200 years' labor and the last gothic cathedral built in Spain. Started in 1525 under the rule of the Emperor Charles V, it overlooks the main square at the highest point of the city.
The Alcázar of Segovia is a castle-like fortress built on the confluence of the Eresma and Clamores rivers. It later served as a royal residence in the 15th Century.
Segovia is home to many museums, private collections and art galleries. Other impressive locations worth visiting in the area are the Royal Palace of la Granja de San Ildefonso, Riofrío Palace, Coca Castle, Cuéllar Castle, as well as several smaller churches and convents throughout the province of Segovia.
Theater and festivals
Throughout the year, Segovia is host to a variety of artistic and cultural festivals. Among them is the international Hay Festival, originating in Wales, it is an annual literature and art festival which includes musical performances and film previews.

These interests can be as diverse as photography or basketball--activities and hobbies that you have a passion for and that add value to the student community.

John LanoThings here are going on all the time ... ...
Things here are going on all the time, at least for me it's a big change and a great change because you go out and like just last week we decided to go on a really long tapeo and we were able to go to 10 different bars in one night, there were people our age, people older, younger, and it was a great mix.
Sophie UlrichI really like ths Spanish lifestyle ... ...
I really like the Spanish lifestyle because its really laid back, you feel really comfortable here. The weather, I think that’s an important factor because if you have blue skies every day, the mentality is totally different. You walk everywhere, people are nice to you, people are talking to you in the street ... it's great.
