Universidad Politécnica has several campuses scattered around various areas of Catalonia and two of them are in Barcelona: Campus Diagonal Nord and Campus Diagonal Sud. Metro line 3 has two stops in Avenida Diagonal (Zona Universitaria and Palau Reial) and both of them are very close to both campuses.
Campus Diagonal Nord is located north of Avenida Diagonal in Jordi Girona street. This campus hosts the School of Telecommunications Engineering, the School of Informatics and the School of Civil Engineering.
If you are going to study in campus Diagonal Nord, Pedralbes and Les Corts are very close by. Pedralbes is located just north of campus and is one of the best residential neighbourhoods of the city. The campus is easily reachable on foot in 15 or 20 minutes from many areas of this neighbourhood. Les Corts district, where the legendary Camp Nou stadium is located, is an excellent area to find accommodation. The journey to the university only takes 14 minutes (metro line 3 from Les Corts to Palau Reial and then a few minutes on foot) .
Campus Diagonal Sud hosts the School of Architecture, the School of Building Construction, the School of Industrial Engineering and the School of Mathematics and Statistics .
If you are looking for accommodation well connected to the university, Sants neighbourhood is your best choice. The journey from Plaça de Sants to the University will not take more than 20 minutes in total; 7 minutes by metro (line 5 to Collblanc and then 9S line to Zona Universitaria) and the rest on foot. The neighborhood is not only well connected to the University, but also with many areas of Barcelona and the airport (trains from Sants station).

Uniplaces is creating a trusted brand for students everywhere. We believe in making finding accommodation better. We want students to have a great experience when they book a place, when they move in, and every day that they spend there. At the same time, we're always looking for trustworthy landlords who can help us deliver this great experience. We've moved the whole process of finding, choosing and booking online. It's our way of turning an old-fashioned market upside-down. It's our way of changing the world.
At Uniplaces we make the process of booking an apartment as easy as possible for both tenant and landlord.
That's why we have our own team of professional photographers that verify our properties and pick our landlords carefully in order to save time on viewings: we think it’s old-fashioned and time-consuming.
You can look at forty different apartments on our platform in the same amount of time that it takes to see a room.
The pictures you see here haven’t been photoshopped, so they’ll be really accurate.
If you’ve still got any doubts, we’ll keep the money that you transfer us until 24h after your move-in date.
If something’s not exactly what you saw online, we’ll help you move somewhere else and return your money.
We can only give you the contact details of your landlord after your booking is accepted. But we can guarantee that Uniplaces chooses the landlords it works with very carefully.
Besides, we’ve had students whose favourite part was living with a local!
Landlords and host families can be great city guides, help you out with translations and even become your friends.
As soon as your booking is accepted, you're given the landlord’s contact details. Then, you can discuss all details directly with them, such as when you’ll be moving-in.
Students move in and out at different times, so your flatmates might change during your stay.
It’s a great opportunity to make new friends!
We personally speak to students who we place in Uniplaces apartments and are sure we will find the right place for you as well!
At the bottom of the property page, you have a calendar where you can see the availability of that room/apartment, according to the landlord.
But if you’re still unsure about that we’re happy to help!
Tell us your move-in and move-out dates and we will double check if the place is available for you!
There are two different types of deposits: the Holding and Security deposits.
By clicking on “Deposit” at the bottom of the offer page you will get more information about each type of deposit.
In general, the deposit is paid to cover for any potential damages that may occur during your period of stay or will be used as rent compensation in case you leave earlier than originally booked.
If no damages occur, and you leave on the agreed move-out date, your deposit should be refunded by the landlord in a way you both agree on.
