The surroundings are composed of different reference research centers, such as ICFOCIMNE or CTTC, the development and innovation of different companies with the education of the two Schools: EETAC (Castelldefels School of Telecommunications and Aerospace Engineering) and ESAB (Agricultural Engineering School of Barcelona).

    Very close to the Campus, 5 minutes on foot, is a very unique Catalan sportive installation; the Canal Olímpic de Catalunya, where rowing, canoeing and skating, among other sports, are practiced.

    Castelldefels’ city center and all the services, such as shops, banks, football fields, etc., are located within less than a 10 minute walk from campus. That being said, near the campus, there is a shopping center called Ànec Blau, with shops, restaurants and a cinema, which is open all year round.

    With 300 sunny days per year, clean beaches with clear water and warm weather temperatures, Castelldefels is one of the pearls of the Mediterranean Coast. Castelldefels is a paradise to practice water sports the whole year round and enjoy Mediterranean culture, food, art, celebrations, shows and spectacles.

    The school also features several associations, you can find the complete list here.

    Furthermore, the schools organise every year a campus party, featuring free taster-classes from different sports, a football and basketball league, surprises and prizes, and several live bands and DJs overtaking the main stage.
