To reach the UAB from the center of Barcelona, take the train of the "Ferrocarrils de la Generalitat de Catalunya, FGC", lines S2 (Barcelona Plaça Catalunya - Sabadell) or S6 (Barcelona Plaça Catalunya - U. Autònoma). From Catalunya Square ("Plaça Catalunya", at the centre of Barcelona; the entry to the station is right in front of the café Zürich close to the Ramblas) the trip takes about 30 minutes to the "Universitat Autònoma" station. There you should exit the station (you need your train ticket to do so) and walk to the Faculty of Arts ("Facultat de Filosofia i Lletres") in approximately 10-15 minutes. If instead of going to the university, you wish to go to the "Vila" (where the accommodation facilities are: the hotel Campus and the apartments you can rent), you can leave the train at the station "Bellaterra" (one stop before the "Universitat Autonoma" stop), and then walk for 5-10 minutes.
You can purchase a single ticket ("bitllet senzill") for about 3 euros in the vending machines in the FGC stations, or a T-Casual (1 zone) ticket (11,32€), which allows you to take 10 trips. This ticket allows the combination of train, metro, or bus within one hour and a half after starting the trip.
The national railway company Renfe also offers a train line to the station named "Cerdanyola-Universitat", but it is a bit far from the Campus. We therefore recommend you to take the FGC line instead.
To go to the airport "El Prat" from Catalonia Square ("Plaça Catalunya"), you can take the "Aerobus" shuttle, which you will find in front of El Corte Ingles (a big mall). You will note that there are two separate queues – one for the Aerobus (A1) to Terminal 1 (T1) and one for the Aerobus (A2) to Terminal 2 (T2). The trip takes about 40 minutes. You can also get to the Airport by metro. In that case, select "airport" at the ticket vending machine (4,5€), and take the green Line 3 (L3) from Plaça Catalunya to the "Zona universitària" station, where you need to change to Line 9 Sud (L9S) until the airport. The trip from Catalonia Square to the airport takes about 60 minutes.
