ELISAVA has an enviable location on one of the most emblematic streets in Barcelona: La Rambla, which enhances the School of Design with its characteristic cultural vitality. This location affords students with proximity to historic Barcelona, full of restless enthusiasm.

We are in the historical centre, just meters away from the Mediterranean Sea. La Rambla, the Gothic Quarter, Gaudi's emblematic works and many of the city’s famous sights are within walking distance from ELISAVA, and thanks to public transport many other destinations are very close as well.

The School’s base is an ideal epicentre from which to explore a city that has become a point of reference in Europe for design and architecture.

ELISAVA is located in a modern building, inaugurated in 2009, equipped to ensure the academic quality of each of the courses we offer. It features multipurpose halls and dedicated rooms such as the model workshop, the advanced multimedia classroom, engineering and photography labs, computer rooms, the fashion workshop, and a library with a book collection of over 9,000 volumes specialised in design.
