A place to learn in many ways and with many people Our School uses all the possibilities of IE -Madrid and Segovia campuses, study trips and online platforms- to provide exciting and flexible learning options.

Our Facilities


Learn, collaborate and interact. Diversity among people plus the variety and quality of spaces for learning, collaborating, and interacting, make IE an open and supportive place for studying.

The FabLab

Bringing ideas to life.

The culture of making and fabricating our ideas and prototypes is essential to our School. For students of architecture and design, it is important to know how to make things, to “think with their hands” and to understand concepts such as scale, materials, sustainability, and  processes.

Our MIT-accredited Fabrication Labs (FabLabs), located on both the Segovia and Madrid Campus, are crucial tools in achieving this, meeting and exceeding the highest standards of quality in our staff and our digital and manual fabrication infrastructure.

After fulfilling training requirements to assure safety, students are encouraged to creatively use the great variety of tools available, such as  theCNC router, laser cutters, 3D printers, and more traditional carpentry and handwork tools.

IE Library

Books are just the beginning.

The IE Library works to support research, teaching and learning, providing easy access to a variety of information necessary for students and teachers. There are two library centers: IE Business School Foundation, located in Madrid, and IE University, located in Segovia.

The IE University Library (Segovia Campus) has a bibliographical collection on architecture, art and heritage, humanities, urbanism, construction and related fields. The collection also includes journals and professional magazines in paper and online formats, videos, CDs, maps, slides and a large number of online resources increasingly important to the architecture field.

The participation of IE in several consortia means easy access to additional resources through interlibrary loans and other services.

IE Madrid Campus

A metropolitan Hub.

The Madrid campus is a vibrant urban campus distributed among 17 buildings located in the central Salamanca neighborhood, where the School and the city coexist seamlessly. The campus combines cutting-edge resources, specialized classrooms, and modern facilities. Madrid is a city where new ideas take shape due to its cultural, educational and economic vitality.

IE Segovia Campus

A rich historic setting for 21st century education.

The IE University campus, in the picturesque city of Segovia, offers a true campus experience. IE is housed in the historic Convent of Santa Cruz la Real. Segovia is only 25 minutes from Madrid by high-speed train, and it welcomes students from over 80 countries to an international university setting, with an atmosphere that is both academic and lively.

This campus provides the perfect environment to get to know everyone and become part of a close-knit community. Segovia is a historic city full of narrow streets, an impressive Roman aqueduct, Romanesque churches, and beautiful squares. Additionally, this province of Spain has always been famous for its climate and its traditional cuisine. It is definitely not just a city to be admired from afar, but also a great place to live.
