Get to know the UPV campuses
The Vera campus is located north of the city of Valencia in a quiet environment that borders the orchards. More than 60 buildings spread out neatly around the Agora, the heart of university life. The green areas are over 108,000 m2 and house an open-air sculpture museum.
The Gandia campus is located in Grao de Gandia. The centre has well-equipped laboratories for all specialities, a building with conference rooms and the main lecture hall, sports facilities, and a Learning and Research Resource Center (CRAI).
The Alcoi campus comprises several emblematic buildings dating from the era of industrialization. On the one hand, the Paseo del Viaducto building is located in the city’s centre, and less than a kilometre away. There are the old Ferrándiz and Carbonell factories, two large textile companies that today are the school’s headquarters. The campus also has a sports and research building, outdoor sports courts and green areas.
