Getting to the University from Barcelona Airport

Although there are a number of ways of reaching the university from Barcelona airport, we strongly recommend the following:

  1. By the airport train –RENFE– to Barcelona-Sants station.
  2. Once in Barcelona Sants, change train to any train going to Plaça Catalunya (trains are very frequent and the two stations are a single stop apart)
  3. Once in Plaça Catalunya station, follow the signs to the trains operated by the Ferrocarrils de la Generalitat de Catalunya-FGC.
  4. Take an FGC train in the direction of Sabadell (Line S2 to Sabadell or Line S55 to the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona) and get off at the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona station. The journey takes about 35 minutes.

Alternatively, travel from Barcelona airport by Bus (Aerobús) or taxi to Barcelona-Plaça Catalunya. Buses leave the airport approximately every 15 minutes. Once in Plaça Catalunya, go to the Ferrocarrils de la Generalitat de Catalunya-FGC station and follow the indications in point 3, above.
