Campus Features

Bilbao Campus

The University of Deusto in Bilbao has a privileged location in the heart of Bilbao, opposite the Guggenheim Museum on the right bank of the Nervion River. La Comercial, a historic building with modern renovations, houses Deusto Business School. The university's library is found just crossing the Nervion River and offers extensive individual and group study spaces. On campus, students will also find several dining areas and cafeterias, as well as a recently-renovated fitness and wellness center "DeustoFit," and a variety of common spaces.

Bilbao is a thriving cosmopolitan city open to Europe, awarded the title of Best European City 2018. It has undergone large scale environmental and urban renewal since the 1990s when the Guggenheim Museum opened as its flagship building. After many years as an industrial hub, the symbols of the new city are now business, leisure and culture. The nearby coastal areas are ideal for water sports such as surfing, windsurfing, diving and sailing, and nearby mountain ranges offer hiking excursions in a variety of experience levels.
