New C room

We open Room C


After many requests from our residents, finally, we have enabled a common room where you can be, without having to book or ask to open it, since it is open every day.

There you will find sofas, an auxiliary room with the already mythical armchairs of the Vila, a screen for when we make the movie screenings or play the Fifa and the stars of the room: a table football and a pool table.

But not only do we have Room C, we have other common areas. Find them here.

We hope you enjoy them!

Have you ever gotten a bird’s eye view of the Vila?

Last academic year we recorded an amazing video using the modern technology of remote control drone filming, which is revolutionising many areas in many ways. It helps us see the Vila as we had never seen it before.

Producing it was loads of fun, because we took advantage of Cat Day to film it, and the result is, well, amazing!!
