The Universidad Rey Juan Carlos is a young, public university with about 35,000 students distributed among four campuses. USAC classes are held at the campus located in the Vicálvaro neighborhood and are easily accessible via the subway. The campus combines old and modern buildings and has a new, modern library, along with a gym, computer lab, and two student cafeterias. Green areas and an active student body make it an ideal place for the USAC student to find the interaction necessary for successful learning of the Spanish language and culture.
