How to go from the airport to the UIB students residence.

At the Airport take the Bus Line 1 to Plaza España. The stop is outside the Airport Arrivals' Hall. There is one bus every 12-15 minutes. Ticket price: 2 EUR.

From Plaza España to the UIB you can either take another bus or the metro. The bus number 9 will take you directly to the campus residence. For more information on Bus schedules visit the EMT web page.

You can also take the Metro (subway). There is only one line that starts in Plaza España and ends in the UIB campus. Ticket price is 0.90 EUR. The Metro stop and the Student's residence are located at opposite sides of the UIB campus, therefore if you take the metro you will have walk to get to the residence. On Saturdays and Sundays there is one metro departing from Plaza España at 6:30, then one every 30 minutes from 7:30 to 21:00 and finally an additional one at 22:00h. From Monday to Friday the typical frequency is 15 minutes. More information on Metro schedules can be found at this page.

Alternativelly you can also take a Taxi from the Airport to the UIB Students Residence. Taxis can be found just outside the Airport Arrivals Hall. The price depends on the number of suitcases and time of the day, typically between 25 and 30 EUR.
