Going to the University is more than just attending classes


4.320 h.

4.320 That is the approximate number of hours that you will spend in our classrooms and spaces throughout your university student years. Even some more, if you choose one of the many Double Degrees that we offer or some of the different extra activities that you can experience here.

It may seem like many hours,
but if you know how to live them, they will end up looking like few.

We propose you to live them in a modern campus full of activity.
The CEU is a non-profit foundation and that is why we invest all the money we earn in improving the facilities of our campuses and in helping the people who live in them. In the Valencian Community we have invested more than 80 million euros in recent years.

We propose you to share this campus with young people who come from more than 70 countries and who choose to come here to study their degrees and to live the university experience.

Do you want to see how students live in our campuses? Bienvenido/Welcome.

Campus GASMA is a unique place that can only be believed to exist after you have been there. A place where students can enjoy:

  • Experiential classrooms for training
  • Various types of kitchens specially prepared for advanced training
  • A spectacular underground cellar that creates a unique space for some subjects
  • A didactic garden
  • A special area for learning pastry and sweets
  • An integrated own restaurant
  • A large garden area that includes a pool.

The GASMA campus has state-of-the-art design facilities, equipped with all types of tools and professional machines of the highest level. In addition, the building is surrounded by an environment of unparalleled nature, so that students can unleash their creativity and then move it to the kitchen, or to the teaching restaurant that has the campus, where the students themselves lead both the kitchen and the service accompanied by professionals.

Reproducing professional environments as spaces to learn more and better has always characterized the CEU. Being able to practice what is learned in the classroom within the University, prepare us better to face the first professional experiences. But it is true, that this apporach requires two key factors:

  • Put the focus on pedagogical innovation: develop other ways of learning and demonstrate what you have learned.
  • Investment capacity in own facilities: the infrastructures for real practical learning within the University are costly, both to build and maintain. Our foundational nature, which implies that we invest in our educational activity all the money our students pay, allows us to continue improving our Advanced Learning Spaces each year.
