IE also has a virtual campus, a novelty not many universities around the world can boast about. The Madrid campus is on the María de Molina street, in the neighbourhood of La Castellana, which belongs to the Salamanca district. This is one of the most important commercial areas of Madrid, where a large number of luxury shops are concentrated.
The IE campus in Madrid is very well connected by underground to many areas around the city. The two stops closest to campus are Gregorio Marañón (Lines 7 and 10) and Intercambiador de Avenida de América (Lines 4, 6, 7 and 9). There is also a bus stop right outside the campus entrance, which you can travel to on the number 12 bus coming from either Plaza de Cristo Rey or the Paseo Marqués de Zafra.
If you are looking for the ideal accommodation during your studies at IE, don't miss out on our recommendations with the best neighbourhoods to live in Madrid and check out how you can get to campus:
Salamanca is one of the most exclusive areas of Madrid and is full of luxury shops and beautiful residential buildings. The commute to IE takes about 17 minutes: 8 minutes on the number 19 bus from Velázquez street and the rest by foot.
The route to IE from the Prosperidad neighbourhood couldn’t be more convenient: 15 minutes on the number 9 bus from López de Hoyos street.
Chamberí is one of the most traditional districts of Madrid. The journey to IE Business School takes around 30 minutes: 18 minutes on the number 16 bus from Fernández de los Ríos street and then another 15 minutes on foot.

Within Chamberí, two of the best connected neighbourhoods are Trafalgar and Vallehermoso.
In Trafalgar don´t forget to visit the historical Olavide square, a hot spot for tapas. To get to IE, you can take the number 61 bus from Gonzalo-Cardenal Cisneros to Paseo de la Castellana and then walk the rest on foot.
The Vallehermoso neighbourhood has excellent sports facilities, as well as the Santander Park, Chamberí’s main park. The journey to IE takes only 14 minutes: 5 on the tube from Islas Filipinas to Gregorio Marañón and the rest on foot.
Other neighbourhoods that you should consider if you’re studying at IE are Almagro and Guindalera. From those areas, you can even walk to the university.
