What is Barcelona Centre Universitari?

BCU is the official service that provides accommodation and helps out students, professors and researchers that come to Barcelona.

BCU was set up in 1997 with the aim of promoting, coordinating and directing all actions and activities that are necessary to promote Barcelona and its metropolitan area as an international university centre.

In 2014 BCU was an example of good practices for the internationalization of universities according to UNESCO.


Since 2016 BCU is the showcase of all university venues for organizing conferences.

BCU has the support of the Government of Catalonia, the City Council of Barcelona and the universities: UB, UAB, UPC, UPF, URL, UIC, UAO CEU and UVIC-UCC.
