Living in Madrid

As the nation's capital, Madrid is the epicenter of Spanish culture, business, and politics. In Spain, all roads lead not to Rome, but to Madrid. Strategically located in the center of the country, it is the starting point of all the main highways and high speed train lines which connect it to all major Spanish cities.

Our Campus is located at the epicenter of a vibrant and exciting city.
