Arriving at UPC - Campus Nord

Congress will be held in UPC campus in Barcelona; sessions will be held on Vertex building (VX), A6 building and A5 building.

  • Map to UPC campus with recommended paths for the closest underground stations:
  • If you want a more accurate map, please go to Google Maps, then enter "Jordi Girona 1-3, Barcelona"
  • Closest underground stations: "Zona Universitaria" and "Palau Reial", both at the L3 (green line). See the underground + tram map and the trains + underground + tram map. There are also several bus lines stopping close to the campus, plus a new tram line with 2 stops, "Zona Universitaria" and "Palau Reial", for tram lines T1, T2 and T3.
  • By bus: Alternatively to coming by subway, you could take the bus. Lines numbers 7, 74, 75, 67, 68 (get off at Palau Reial stop) and 33 (Final line stop in front of El Bruc castle, very near to Campus Nord), or 54 (Final stop at Dulcet Street, very near from the Campus Nord).
  • Coming by taxi: To get to the campus, ask for "Jordi Girona 1" (in the above map, this corresponds to the building tagged as "NX"). To get to the UPC Residence by taxi, better print out the residence address and show it to the driver.

If you come by tram or underground and you get off at "Palau Reial" stop, you will be at the Avinguda Diagonal street (a very wide avenue). Then you should go up taking the Tinent Coronel Valenzuela street (following the red dashed line of the map), which has some slope up. Go straight, and at the end you will see the Campus Nord. There you will see a crystal building on your left (Nexus II). Go straight on and the next building you will see on your left is the building Omega (A0 in the map). A little bit up, you will find the A6 building (marked in purple), where most of the sessions and workshops will be run. The Vertex building (VX, marked in purple), is where the plenary sessions and plenary event will take place, at Auditori room.
