LIVING IN LES CORTS
The district of Les Corts is located in the west of the city, bordering to the north with Sarrià-San Gervasio. It is a mainly commercial area that houses offices, shopping centers and the stadium of FC Barcelona. Despite the intense commercial activity, it is also a fairly quiet residential neighborhood. It is, perhaps, one of the best districts to live as a student in Barcelona, since here are the two campuses of the Polytechnic University and building 3 of ESADE.
FINDING ACCOMMODATION IN LES CORTS
Finding rooms for students in Les Corts is also very convenient for those who study in other universities, since the offer of flats and rooms for students is wide and there are excellent connections by metro with the rest of neighborhoods of Barcelona.
The main metro line that runs the district is the L3, with stops at Les Corts, Maria Cristina, Palau Reial and Zona Universitaria (the latter with connection to the airport with the L9S line). From Palau Reial you can reach the Pompeu Fabra University in about 25 minutes and the Ramón Llull in 30 minutes. There are also many bus lines that run through Les Corts, mainly around Avenida Diagonal, such as lines 7, 33, 67 and 113.
