Palacio Gaviria is for sure one of the best places to go at night. Cafe ducados is a cool place to have dinner. There are a lot of places to eat at nnight and you shouldn't miss the "patatas bravas".

No. I think that this university is pretty much what I was expecting. Most people are friendly and nice. Afterall they're Spanish. The courses are fairly easy and you have lots of time to party and have fun.

I love it. madrid is awsome and if you select this university (except for engineering) you will have fun. if you're studying engieneering don't go to this university because the faculty is far outside the city.
