Life at Navarra
The Universidad de Navarra is located in the city of Pamplona, the capital of the Navarra region. Situated in northern Spain, Pamplona is a great city to live in. It is easily navigable on foot or by bicycle and is filled with parks: 20% of the city comprises green spaces, where you can practice sports, go for a stroll, or relax in the afternoon. It is also a popular university destination: almost 20,000 of its more than 200,000 inhabitants are students.
Pamplona enjoys a strategic location, surrounded by nature, 80kms away from the French border and just a few kilometers from cities such as Bilbao, Zaragoza, and San Sebastian. It has achieved international prestige due to festivals like San Fermín, which takes place in July and attracts tourists from all over the world.
The weather is mild in autumn and spring, cold in the winter, and hot and sunny in the summer. Every month there is occasional rainfall, so it is a good idea to keep warm clothing and an umbrella on hand throughout the year.
The city’s cultural and sporting activities are complemented by the Universidad de Navarra campus, which boasts laboratories, simulation centers, sports facilities, and the Universidad de Navarra Museum, all of which make student life a unique and unforgettable experience.
