Common areas

The center offers an around-the-clock front desk with staff members who speak English and are constantly available to help students. There is free wireless internet in the entire building and surveillance security system. The residence area is accessed through the reception area. Both areas are separated by a glass door that gives entry to the apartments through the original marble stair case from the 19th century and the elevator.

On the top floor the wonderful terrace can be enjoyed; from which we can see a majestic view of one of the two ancient gates of the city from the 14th century that still remains in Valencia, The Serranos Towers. This beautiful medieval scenery is perfect to celebrate and enjoy different events with students, faculty and staff: music activities, cocktails, cooking contests, and other class activities. The terrace is open for students to relax and sunbathe for some hours a day during summer season.

The Study Center area includes multi-functional classrooms and conference hall space with state of the art technical equipment, a faculty room and administrative offices such as the Student Services Office where students are welcome and encouraged to come with any questions or concerns. All the facilities have been carefully built integrating the archaeological treasures uncovered during renovations, which creates a unique and marvelous learning scenario.

The library/study room contains some historical remains that date back 1000 years, from the Muslim period. Students can check out books, DVD’s, travel books, etc. as well as study alone or in groups. This room is also equipped to be used as a conference and classroom space. Next to the library there is a coffee machine and lounge area. A computer lab, equipped with up-to-date software and a printer, is also available.

How to describe this person I am now? I just know that I'm better, Valencia changed me for good. And this chica, though no longer in España, is the happiest chica in the world.

Being in a foreign country with approximately 50 other students is a great way to ease into the college life. Being so far away forces you to grow up and become independent in a short time.

My college experience has been enhanced by spending it in Spain. Learning a new culture and language while in a small group setting is a big bonus: it feels like I'm a part of a big family.

It is amazing to be able to walk outside and meet people from all over Europe and the world! I am going to be different from other freshmen when I go back to the states, but in a good way.
