How to get to the Universidad Autónoma de Barcelona (UAB)

The Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona (UAB) is a public university in Spain, created in 1968. Most of its teaching centers and extra-academic services are on the Bellaterra Campus located in Cerdanyola del Vallès.

If you are thinking of studying at this university, or you have already decided, you do not have to worry, since although it is not within the urban core of Barcelona city, the distance between both places is minimal and the transport options are super complete.

Where is the UAB located?

The UAB is one of the most important public universities in Catalonia, since it has a long history and offers a wide academic offer in most branches of study. As we have mentioned previously, most of its study centers are located in Bellaterra, which belongs to Cerdanyola del Vallès.

Cerdanyola del Vallès is a municipality in the Vallés Occidental region, in the province of Barcelona, ??an autonomous community of Catalonia.

What are the best options to get there from Barcelona?

The university campus is located about 20 kilometers from the center of Barcelona, ??so there are many people who travel daily in their own cars and motorcycles, since the route is very comfortable and fast.

However, the public transport offer is so complete that in most cases it is a more comfortable, fast, economical, sustainable and efficient option for university students.

Of course, the duration of the journey and the metro / rail lines to be used will largely depend on the point of origin within the city, but below we will give you the key points from which to reach the UAB directly. Thus, you will only have to worry about reaching these points, and from there get on a railway that stops at the stations near the campus.

  1. From the “Plaça Catalunya”, “Provença”, “Gràcia”, “Muntaner” or “Sarrià” railway stops: Once at these stations, all you have to do is get on a S2 or S6 railway. Make sure you go up in the direction of Sabadell Parc Central, and get off at the “Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona” stop.
  2. From the station “Av. Meridiana (Estació de Fabra i Puig) ”: Take bus e3 towards UAB Vila Nord. This direct service between Barcelona and the UAB, stops at the different faculties, make sure you get off at the one you want.
