UAM - Universidad Autonoma de Madrid

If you’re heading to Madrid to study at UAM, the Autonomous University of Madrid, we’ve collected all you need to know about the university.

UAM – Universidad Autonoma de Madrid

UAM (Universidad Autónoma de Madrid) is the Autonomous University of Madrid. UAM, or locally known as La Autónoma, is ranked as the top university in Spain and is a must for anyone with a passion for Law, for which it is the most prestigious school in Spain – King Felipe VI is a UAM Law Alumni.

Despite being in rural Madrid, student life around here is vibrant: there are several festivals throughout the year, especially during Spring. The fact that it’s outside Madrid’s centre means that there’s more room for university facilities. UAM boasts its own halls of residence, a sports centre, language services, and even an infant school and primary school.

To get to la Autónoma’s main campus from the centre of Madrid, you have to take the C4 train towards Alcobendas, or the 714 bus leaving Tetuán.
