The University of Granada is located in the Andalucia region of Southern Spain and has over 80,000 students enrolled. Granada has a privileged geography, located halfway between the sea and the mountains: 40 minutes from the Mediterranean coast with a tropical climate and 30 minutes from the ski resort of Sierra Nevada. It is also one of the cheapest yet culturally rich cities in Spain to live.

The university is made up of 22 faculties and 116 departments, spread over five different campuses; Centro, Cartuja, Fuerteventura, Aynadamar and Ciencias de la Salud. Two more campuses are located in the cities of Ceuta and Melila, two Spanish territories in Northern Africa, making it the only European university split over two continents.
