First year at the University

Practical information

It's useful to know which bus to take from the University or what to do if you become ill.

  • Getting to the University by bus

    The closest line to the Central Building (line 1). Get off at the stop on Calle Fuente del Hierro, at the Belagua university hall of residence, beside the zebra crossing. (Frequency: every 20 minutes: on the hour, 20 past the hour, and 20 to the hour). 
    • In the School of Law parking lot (line 5) (Frequency: every 15 minutes: five past, 20 past, 25 to, and 10 to the hour).
    • In the Sciences area (lines 1, 2, 4 and 15).

    You can check the routes of these lines and others that will drop you close to your School on the websites of the Community of Municipalities of the Pamplona Metropolitan Area and La Montañesa, the company that operates the service.

    Keep in mind that students have access to some of the parking lots.

    You can get a smart card (a "bonobús") free of charge through CaixaBank, the Caja Rural de Navarra or the Caja Laboral to pay for bus trips.

    You don't have to be a client of any of the banks to request a smart card.

  • Your health

    All the information Spanish students need to find out where to go if they become ill.

  • Your expenses

    If you don't like carrying a lot of cards in your wallet, you can incorporate a debit card in your university card. This service is offered by the banks in the Popular Group (Banco Popular, Banco de Vasconia, Banco de Castilla, Banco de Andalucía, Banco de Galicia and Banco de Crédito Balear). To request this service, you need to have an account open with one of these banks. To find out more about this option, you can go to the Banco de Vasconia branch located at Avenida Pío XII, 39.

    You can also request a University of Navarra Visa card through the Alumni Association. 0.5% of all purchases made with this credit card go to the Alumni scholarship fund. This is a way of collaborating with those who want to come and study at the University.

  • Languages

    A key part of your preparation will be knowledge of languages. The University has an Institute of Modern Languages, located in the Science Library, where you can access courses in English, French, German and Italian, as well as technical English in some specialties. Through the Institute of Modern Languages, you can take University of Cambridge exams (First Certificate, Advanced, Proficiency, and others) and Educational Testing Service exams (TOEFL, GMAT, etc.).

    You can find out more on the Institute's website, by calling extension 6309 (ask for Raquel Díaz), or by emailing

    The main mission of the International Office is to bring University of Navarra students into contact with the international world: internships, exchanges, foreign language learning, postgraduate programs, etc.
