The building has a range of rooms of different sizes to suit a variety of educational activities and has its own library and study areas. There are also three computer rooms and group work rooms. Around the building, but within the University’s fenced perimeter, there are areas for students to take in the sun, relax and chat to fellow students.

Campus Castellón

The building possesses:

  • A laboratory for innovation in education
  • A health sciences teaching and research laboratory
  • Two practical training laboratories
  • A microscope room
  • An ossuary
  • Two demonstration rooms for practical training in Nursing and Medicine
  • Two dissection rooms for anatomy classes
  • A room with the latest clinical diagnostic technology, to help Medicine students prepare for the ECOE exam.
  • The impressive Advanced Simulation Centre, opened in 2017. This space mimics a university hospital, using the latest medical simulation technology. There are four multi-purpose rooms for feedback after simulation sessions, two primary care consulting rooms, and three hi-tech simulation areas, equipped with the latest CAE Learning Space technology and high fidelity mannequins. There is also a “backstage” area for the instructors of each medical simulation exercise and even actors, who play the role of patients. This simulation centre for practical training in health sciences models itself on the latest practices at US universities..

This campus is based around the main building, which has its own canteen and the student support services that people have come to expect of CEU, such as the University Guidance Service, which tailors its support to suit student needs, the Careers Service (for both placements and graduate jobs), and the various secretary’s offices for administrative issues. Of course, the building also has its own chapel.

The GASMA Gastronomy and Culinary Management Campus is a unique venue in which all of the practical training takes place for our innovative Bachelor’s Degree in Gastronomy. The complex is located on the southward approach to Castellón, a kilometre away from the main CEU building. Its heart is Villa Dolores, a nineteenth century farmhouse which has been restored to provide the best possible setting for training in Mediterranean cuisine.

The GASMA campus really has to be seen to be believed. Our students can enjoy an excellent range of facilities:

  • Practical training rooms
  • Various types of kitchen equipped with the latest technology
  • A spectacular wine cellar, which provides a unique backdrop for the teaching of some courses
  • A kitchen garden for teaching
  • A specific area for learning about cakes and desserts
  • An integrated restaurant
  • Extensive gardens with a swimming pool

The GASMA campus can boast striking, cutting-edge facilities, equipped with all the professional tools and utensils a top restaurant needs. But it’s not just that: the building is located within a natural setting of outstanding beauty, inspiring students to be creative and use their flair in the kitchens and the campus restaurant – where students take the lead in the kitchen and in serving the diners, with the support of top professionals.

The desire to recreate professional environments to facilitate learning has always been of the characteristic features of education at CEU. Being able to put theoretical learning into practice while still at the University really helps our students prepare themselves for real life in employment. But achieving this requires two things in particular:

  • A focus on innovation in teaching: the desire to develop new forms of learning and of demonstrating achievement in learning
  • An ability to invest in in-house facilities: the infrastructure necessary to facilitate a truly practical education at university is costly, both to build and to maintain. Due to our status as an educational foundation, all the fees paid by our students are invested in our educational activities, enabling us to improve our Advanced Learning Facilities, year after year.
